Ethics in politics. Har de har

Wow, all the fuss about Belinda Stronach. It seems that everyone thought she had brains because she has money. That's common. You see it all the time. Some rich guy marries a blonde bimbo and suddenly everyone is respecting the bimbo as brainy. It's not misogynistic to say it, some things just 'are'. And it's gender neutral.
Just because Frank Stronach left Belinda the Magna International Inc. doesn't mean she has any smarts. Or ethics. After all she is former CEO of the corporation. She didn't beat Harper in the Conservatives for leadership so went elsewhere for her power trip. Threw away her Tory convictions and ran to the Liberals for power. Did Ujjal Dosanj pay her a visit too?
He seems to be visiting all the other Conservatives, trying to influence them into betraying their party. Well, send a dog to do a dog's job? You remember Ujjal, he was leader of the NDP in BC, but needed a power trip himself so tossed out those ethics and morals to become a Liberal part of the most corrupt government in decades! He visited Chuck Cadman too, trying for his vote. (UPDATE: guess he got it) And now Gurmant Grewal has a public visible arguement over Dosanj's visit to him too! Dosanj's office secretary denies it all. Dosanj says Grewal came to him, Grewal has this tape recording of a meeting with Tim Murphy of the Prime Minister's office. The PMO is denying everything too. The political adage - Deny deny deny. But the question is evident: If Grewal was up to no good, approaching the Liberals, then why would he tape record his own meeting? Hmmm.
Did you notice that it was Dosanj's secretary who denied? Did you notice it was Murphy in the meeting? Did you notice how they keep the PM away from it all. Well it seems to be working with the Gomery Commission; Mr Dithers was only in charge of the money, he didn't know anything about where it went. Isn't the REAL point here that he SHOULD have known EVERYTHING? If it comes out that Martin is not implicated directly in the Sponsorship Scandal, would people believe he is squeaky clean? Denyability is everything isn't it? That's why you have 'people' to do the dog work.
Ethics? Not %$#@ likely. Sigh, I guess things could be worse; in China, over 870,000 government officials were indicted for corruption in 2004!
Belinda has nice shoes though, have to agree with the Liberal spokeswoman on that one.

These Boots Are Made For Walkin'
You keep saying you've got something for me.
something you call love, but confess.
You've been messin' where you shouldn't have been a messin'
and now someone else is gettin' all your best.

These boots are made for walking, and that's just what they'll do
one of these days these boots are gonna walk right over to you.

You keep lying, when you oughta be truthin'
and you keep losin' when you oughta not bet.
You keep samin' when you oughta be changin'.
Now what's right is right, but you ain't been right yet.

These boots are made for walking, and that's just what they'll do
one of these days these boots are gonna walk right over to you.

You keep playin' where you shouldn't be playin
and you keep thinkin' that you´ll never get burnt.
I just found me a brand new box of matches yeah
and what we know you ain't had time to learn.

These boots are made for walking, and that's just what they'll do
one of these days these boots are gonna walk right over to you.
