Horn blowing

It's being taken to a whole new art form by this government. Not that we don't know this already after rounds and rounds of ads and signs, etc. But one little example from yesterday's government announcements seemed a bit much, this: "Government of Canada helps post-secondary graduate in Cobourg gain career-related experience." A better title for that announcement would actually be: Government of Canada creates one job. Woo hoo!

Announced by the local Conservative MP, but of course.

Nothing against the lucky articling student and the law clinic in question. But the occasion seemed to cry out for the observation that there is no horn too small to blow for the self-promoting Harper Conservatives.

Congratulations to the lucky job getter in Northumberland.
