What Is Marc Garneau On?

Certainly vain-glory helpeth to perpetuate a man's memory; and virtue was never so beholding to human nature, as it received his due at the second hand.
Sir Francis Bacon, Essay LIV, - Of Vain Glory

If Marc Garneau dropped dead twenty years ago he would still be today a great Canadian. The first Canadian in space and a past president of the Canadian Space Agency, Chancellor of Carleton University, and he, still not having his ego satisfied, ran for Parliament and won the seat Westmount - Ville Marie in Montreal! The Oracle of Ottawa truly believes that Canadians are entitled to their entitlements, but holy crap, this Jean - Guy space cadet is already triple dipping!

Marc 'Barfey' Garneau
   The reality is that once ole Marc was Canada's first space cadet, but now he is sixty three years old! Time stops for no man, and this goes for ex space cadets. By the time of the next scheduled Federal Election (2015), Marc Garneau will also be a senior citizen! He will then be QUAD dipping! As he will be getting his old age pension checks in the mail. Why is it that some guys just never know when to quit? And why would an old man want to be Prime Minister when he could be making up to five times as much just talking about his past exploits on the talk circuit?

The Oracle of Ottawa was quiet surprised that ole Marc put up the money to run in the present Liberal leadership race. What was he thinking? What the hell is he on? The Liberal Party needs a leader that can wet the panties. Marc Garneau hasn't wet a panty in decades. Of course the little old ladies that let go into their depends, while remembering how sexy Marc was decades ago, while watching Question Period, of course do not count.    

It really irks the Oracle of Ottawa when ole Marc comes on to Justin Trudeau with slippery cheap shots. Justin Trudeau can win. Justin Trudeau can wet the panties. Like father, like son. The apple does not fall far from the tree, does it? The effect of Marc Garneau on the ladies is if you check into the matter deeply, is just the opposite! If he just stayed out of the way, and warmed a back bench seat quietly and refused to run in this leadership race, he would no doubt have copped a great cabinet portfolio in the next Trudeau government. Then there would have been the certain Senate appointment to follow.

But ole Marc will deeply regret his unbridled egomania. He will be lucky to get his papers signed for the next election....

The Just Society. Let us get ready for the second wave. Old men and women should get out of the way....
