… no one has ever accused our mayor of being insightful. And his compulsive need to open his mouth and demonstrate his thoughtlessness and ignorance winds up consuming the political discussion.
Another insightful observation from Ed Keenan.
But it prompts another observation: who says we have to waste time and energy talking about what a moron the mayor is? A growing number of councillors have shown that they’re quite capable of leaving him out of adult discussions; there’s no reason we can’t follow their example.
Sure, maybe it’s an easy hit every time he opens his mouth. And perhaps there’s an argument that when the mayor of Canada’s largest city demonstrates, yet again, that he has no idea what the fuck he’s talking about, it’s “news.” This is something about which thoughtful people can disagree.
The key words there, however, are “yet again.” Really, is it any surprise any more? The mayor’s out to lunch. We know. Let’s move on. If other councillors can govern around him, then surely we can talk about things in the same spirit.
