Minister John Baird Is Best Tory For Environment Portfolio

Prime Minister Stephen Harper believes that Minister John Baird is the most qualified member of the Conservative Caucus to be the Federal Minister of the Environment. And why is that?

Well, number one, he can yell VERY loud in the House of Commons. To be the Tory Environment Minister, you must be able to bully your voice over any other voice in the Commons. Since the Tories haven’t a clue concerning the environment, and since the polling shows that Canadians want action, Minister Baird is required to holler and yell in the absence of any tangible and realistic initiatives by the government.

Number two, he has just the right amount of snarkiness* necessary to display an aura of utter disdain for any substantive suggestions that may come from the opposition. Baird has that unique ability to furrow his brow and slightly curl his upper lip so that sufficient contempt is communicated to the other political parties and the press.

Number three, Baird has mastered the use of political spin and memorization of the mindless lines that have been developed by the back room boys to deflect any and all criticism of the Tory flip flop on environmental policy.

John Baird is a natural choice for Minister of the Environment in Harper’s cabinet. Loud voice, snarkey contempt, and ability to stick to script.

Go John go!

Snark, is a derivative word from snarky, "Irritable or short-tempered; irascible" from Dutch and Low German snorken, of imitative origin. Refers to a belittling or sarcastic style of speech or writing. It could loosely be described as irritable, backhanded or "snidely derisive"; hence, 'snarkish', 'snarky', 'to snark at somebody'. It does not necessarily have negative connotations and can be used humorously.


He's reducing our dependence on petroleum products by putting them all in his hair - that's my theory.

Very snarky post, I like it.

Sounds like a charmer.

thanks mama! - dan, good observation!

Conservative politicians are full of bluster and rage aren't they? I remember once seeing a debate between Lorne Calvert and Elwin Hermanson. There was some Liberal there too, but I don't remember his name. All Hermanson did was yell and scream. When the political platform is failing just turn up the volume, I suppose.

Great observation - sort of like a teenagers' garage band - if they lack skill and talent, just crank up the volumn!! Thanks!!
