Here he is, Fabian Manning, leaving the Senate to run in the federal election. What is he, nuts?
A political patronage appointment, for which he is getting paid the best kind of money with the best kind of pension for the rest of his unnatural life, and he's throwing it all away after 2 1/2 years, to run in the district of Avalon.
It just goes to show the stupidity and the arrogance of the man. He figures, I guess, that now that Danny's gone, everything will be back to 'normal', and the Conservatives will get their seats back. Not so fast, my son. Every time Steve Harper turned around during these past 2 1/2 years, Manning was right there behind him with that screwed up face that my sister likes to say makes him look like he was weaned on a pickle. The people of Newfoundland are not so quick to forget the treachery of Steve Harper, and that the good senator was right there, every time.
Joined at the hip. Yes, indeed. Which would be all well and good, if Fabian Manning had one single clue to call his own. Or even if he looked like he did.
The person who captured the true essence of Fabian Manning was Mark Critch, on a recent "This Hour Has 22 Minutes" episode. Whatever they pay Mark Critch is not nearly enough. This was brilliant television! The best bit starts at 1:55 minutes. Brilliant.
This, ladies & gentlemen, is the person who will be running in the district of Avalon. Please God, let the voters see that there has to be a better representative for that district than him!!!
