During the 2011 Federal Election Senator Wallin Defended Her Conservative Party Campaign Fundraising Activities. Here's What She Said ...
The following email was sent by Senator Pam Wallin to Postmedia News on April 15, 2011:
I am in Saskatchewan supporting our MP’s who are seeking re-election. The NDP opposes the existence of the Senate so any comments or criticism they might have must be looked at in that light. They would not likely support or agree with anything we do as they deny our constitutional role as an integral party of our parliamentary system.
Pure Conservative snark. When questioned (gently) by the MSM, she used the usual Conservative tactic and attacked the NDP - even while she stood there with her hand in the cookie jar. Nice.
Saskatchewan's mostly Right leaning MSM, simply love her. As an example, the political columnist for the Regina Leader-Post jumped to her defense in this priceless article:
"Pamela Wallin drinks Vico and wears a Green 'Rider bunny hug. She knows the menu for a fall supper is jelly salad, cabbage rolls, perogies and that "dainties" refer to the dessert - not underwear."
