For lifetime achievement in sycophancy

The award goes to... Bill Westcott.

From:
Myopia and delusionary are wrong attributes for a pragmatic premier.
through to:
From my side of the overpass I prefer Danny - with his relentless warrior inside. He is a leader in a class of his own, our nationally recognized premier who isn't afraid to battle Big Oil or the cold, calculating enemy of Newfoundland and Labrador - Stephen Harper.

It is no wonder a staggering 80 per cent in this province trust and respects the premier - it makes sense to me.
the whole thing is just... just... flumbarious, sorcotic, and trambulific. There are no words. You might as well make them up.

At least the headline editor had a bit of subversive fun.

shouldn't that be myopia and delusion? tut tut - mixing nouns and adjectives, and he's supposed to be a wordsmith.

Wally, for the record - I am not related to that nitwit. I am often asked if there is a family connection. There is none that I know of, thankfully.

The part of his column that you quoted was pretty bad. But his xenophobic attack on Peter Pickersgill but was much worse. He should be ashamed. It was disgusting.

Sincerely,
Craig Westcott.

I particularly liked "to coin a familiar phrase..."
