The Lonely Tony Clement
Do you feel sympathy for Tony Clement? The Industry Minister has spent this summer under siege for Censusgate while most of his caucus colleagues have been enjoying a quiet summer. The man jumped into a raging river to save a drowning woman, but that story lasted only a day before vanishing from the media commentary. Tony has even admitted that he feels lonely, despite all the attention he has received from Rosemary Barton and Kady O'Malley. Don Newman even called him an overly ambitious blind partisan. John Baird and Stockwell Day made brief appearances defending the census changes, but other than that Tony has been pretty much alone on an island. The Prime Minister is back and able to carry the football again while Tony takes a well deserved vacation. Though his vacations consist of calling in to the Soloman Show to defend the census changes. There is no rest for the weak and weary.
