Bone Idle Wanker of the Day

Hunter-Climbing Out of the Dark

Gosh, there was some pretty stuff competition today from The Girl in Blue, but for sheer dumbassitude, the winner is… the perpetually benighted HUNTER! (Again.)

According to the hysterical Hunter, parents must rally to the battlements because they’re “under attack” by socialist lefties! And her proof of this tiresome assertion, you ask? First in the docket of her opprobrium is the controversial court ruling by Quebec Superior Court Justice Suzanne Tessier. I’ll spare you the details, but let’s just say that Hunter doesn’t provide any of the salient details of the case that make it much less “implausible” than it may seem at first glance. You can read more about it here and decide for yourself whether you think it was a reasonable decision under the circumstances.

Now, being a curious sort of person, I wanted to find out more about this “socialist lefty” judge who overruled the authority of a divorced father involved in a “high conflict situation” with his ex-spouse. Funny thing… it turns out that she’s a Conservative appointee. How about that? Yep, she was elevated to the bench last year by none other than the Honourable Rob Nicholson, P.C., Q.C., M.P. for Niagara Falls, Minister of Justice and Attorney General of Canada. Go figure.
