missing proof.

I like to believe that most good things in life and politics worth writing about have already been covered by The West Wing.

In the context of today’s news, I paraphrase a quote that felt appropriate:

“[Raj Sherman], boy, I don’t know.

I put the ball in the governments court, why the resistance to providing protection?


I was the first one to say the guy had a right to explain himself, not rush to judgment. But this was disappointing – what was he thinking?? He expected to leave accusations dangling forever on his say so?

Interesting dilemma – if they censure or punish, what if he is seen as right later? The question is, how much later if ever…

He is naive to think they would change things just for him on his say so.

If the gov has nothing to hide, then why not have an inquiry and really make Raj look bad? Seems like they want this to “go away” more than anything else… Awkward.

If the government calls an inquiry on baseles accusations then not only is it a waste of taxpayers money, it’s also a dangerous precedent, what’s to stop anyone else from making baseless accusation and then expecting an inquiry? Raj made very serious allegations, let him prove them and then lets get to the bottom of it, but methinks he spoke without thinking, which is a very dangerous thing to do.

“A proof is a proof. What kind of a proof? It’s a proof. A proof is a proof. And when you have a good proof, it’s because it’s proven.” – Right Honourable Jean Chretien, 20th Prime Minister of Canada

Your the one that needs to shut up you phoney.

So if they have nothing to hide what would it hurt to do an investigation? Unless there’s something to these allegations.
