The Conservatives have been increasingly lowering the level of debate in the House, throwing out "zingers" when they are unable to answer questions, which is most of the time.
Vic Toews really outdid himself though.
The debate was over a serious issue. Further security integration with the United States.
And when the Liberal leader asked about this the brilliant, out of ideas Toews, shot back with "I can only speak to the facts, and that is that all Canadians win from increased co-operation, national safety and protection with the Leader of the Opposition's homeland."
"Homeland"? Ignatieff spent five years in the U.S. teaching at Harvard.
We have soldiers who have served in Afghanistan longer than that. Does that make Afghanistan their new homeland?
If Toews can't answer the question, pass it on. This nonsense is getting on every one's nerves.
