The apple doesn't fall far from the tree (Justin edition)

I knew it was bound to happen sooner or later.   And it did yesterday when Justin Trudeau, son of Pierre, called Environment Minister Peter Kent "you piece of shit."    At least Justin apologized.

Of course there was no excuse for it -- but entirely understandable given that Kent was giving a patronizing answer to an NDP member when he was trying to explain why opposition members weren't invited in on the Canadian delegation for the Durban talks.

Frankly I don't think the elder Trudeau ever apologized for saying -- well, you know, "fuddle duddle," at least until years later when it was much too late to apologize.

I know it's coming close to Christmas when a lot of fuses need to be lit.  But there's a time and place for it.   Question Period isn't one of them -- even if it's the place the Exempt Media focuses on most.

No, I'm pretty sure Pierre didn't apologize. In any case I renamed my Dad's boat "Fuddle Duddle"

Actually, I'm totally supportive of Justin's frustration... I wish he actually told him to "f off" then quoted his father when being asked what he said.

Bravo Justin!
