How can we miss you if you won't go away?

Jean Chretien, the disgraced, corrupt former Primer Minister of Canada, seems intent on traveling down the same road as President Peanut Farmer. Just as there WAS a tradition in the U.S. for ex-Presidents not to criticize the actions of sitting Presidents, until President Peanut Farmer breached that tradition, there was a similar policy in Canada for retired Prime Ministers to keep a low profile after they left office. So much for that policy. Chretien has trashed sitting Prime Minister Stephen Harper for the latter's refusal to attend the opening ceremonies of the Beijing Olympic Games, as well as for Canada's refusal to repatriate terrorist wannabe Omar Khadr: http://www.nationalpost.com/sports/beijing-games/story.html?id=732142#email. I guess that I shouldn't be surprised. Chretien has never met a communist he didn't like, and he has always been very sympathetic to the actions of terrorists.

Harper, citing a scheduling conflict, was one a handful of world leaders who skipped the lavish Olympics opening ceremony on Aug. 8

I hope he had a better reason than this.
