So here we have Monte Paulson,the "new" monday morning quarterback, the first thing I noticed is there was no fanfare from Bill Good or Norman Spector in saying goodbye to Bill Teileman, anyways,it didn`t take long to see the new format in full bloom, I have one thing to say...Disgusting,untrue, pandering,Monte Paulson....Yip yip yip,did I do "good" ....Did I,did I....Yip yip yip.
The show started with Monte,Spector and Good talking about the federal parties and...This quote from Monte Paulson..." The NDP never met a tax they didn`t like" really Monte,when was the last time the federal NDP were in power and raised taxes? And so the show proceeds,and at every turn,every thought Monte Paulson put out there for consumption was ..Yip yip yip...Ya ya ya..your right Norman,your right Bill,did I do "good" did I.....And the show proceeds with some more quotes from Monte Paulson about the provincial NDP " The NDP ran a terrible campaign" ...." The NDP are scary to business"...." The NDP need new candidates"...." The NDP need to rebuild".....and this "The HST was classic Campbell,bring out unpopular stuff early in the first term and by the time the next election rolls around their on top again".....And this quote from Monte Paulson .... classic yellow journalism...." Right after the provincial election a NDP MLA (anonymous) said to me, phew....Thank god we didn`t win the election,we were not ready to form government"
Not one word from Monte about any the Campbell shocks and nightmares,not one word about the 14 % percentage point lead by the NDP, not one word about anything anti Campbell,not one word about McGuinty dropping like a rock in Ontario over the HST,not one word of relevance from Monte Paulson,no clever remarks, no grand news from the federal Liberal convention in Whistler that Monte Paulson attended,not one word worthy of being put on the air......Nothing but PAP, yip yip yip,did I did I do "Good" Bill,did I,did I....
Classic Campbell eh Monte?.....Like slashing surgeries, 50 nurses laid off in the last week alone,MRI`s cancelled, school cuts,arts cuts,sports cuts, classic Campbell indeed...It`s too bad that people will sell their soul, sell their respect,sell out for a chance to be Bill Good`s lapdog and Norman Spector`s junior intern, perhaps that explains his "Not worthy of print" article in today`s Tyee! I would normally leave a link to the CKNW audio vault but in this case, spare yourself the dis-pleasure of hearing Monte Paulson "Panting like a puppy dog"
