CTV, at least at first blush seems absolutely obsessed with the exchange that took place last week between Liberal MP David McGuinty and Foreign Affairs Minister Peter Mackay. While Environment Minister Rona Ambrose was answering a question about the government's Clean Air Act, McGuinty began heckling Mackay. He said something to the effect that if Mackay didn't care about the effect of climate change on people, "What about your dog?" The reference to Mackay's dog stems from what Peter Mackay did after girlfriend Belinda Stronach dumped him at the same time she dumped the Conservative Party. Peter did what most of us would do in a similar situation; he sought solace in the middle of a potato patch with his trusted dog. He just needed to be alone with his dog and of course a reporter from CP and a CBC camera crew. As taunts in the House of Commons go, McGuinty's was excellent; if only Ontario Premier Dalton had his brother's quick wit, but I digress.

In response to McGuinty's statement about his dog, MacKay allegedly pointed to Stronach's empty seat and said "You've got her now". MacKay denies ever making the comment.

Had Peter MacKay been beheaded by Islamofascist jihadists in a Nova Scotia potato patch, it is hard to imagine that CTV would have given that as much coverage as they devoted to what is now being referred to as puppygate. An episode of Mike Duffy Live (hosted by Jane Taber) devoted not one, not two, but THREE segments to MacKay having allegedly called his former girlfriend, former Conservative MP, former a lot of things, Belinda Stronach, a dog.

Can't blame them.

How often does a millionaire heiress get referred to as a dog by the Foreign Minister of a G7 nation?

I can... but if the MSM are idiotic enough to play along with the Liberals on nonsense like this, what can we do?

I'm just going to cite the "no personal attacks" rule and let you guys sort out what that might mean. I realize that this thread is about a personal attack.

Far be it for me to interpret the rules, for the guy who makes the rules, especially as I have no "dog" in this fight. That said, one might argue that the contentious quote is not a "personal attack", but rather corrects the record and adds "fair comment".
