Well, okay, Ms. May delivered a different kind of address at Ottawa’s annual press gallery dinner on the weekend, but her apologies have been more effusive than necessary.
The media has focused on small parts of her unconventional attempt at humour, but included also her comment on Omar Khadr’s release from prison.
For us, there’s no such thing as going too far when it comes to talking about the government’s treatment of Khadr.
We sent Ms. May a short letter of support:-

Re: Omar Khadr
Dear MP May:
Stephen Harper is a Machiavellian Neanderthal’s anus, bartering his humanity for the few votes his Omar rants may be worth among this country’s fascist zealots. He deserves to be tossed from office, and exiled from this country. And, if his sycophantic cabinet colleagues are going to stick their heads up his butt, they can join him in Texas.
You need to go without sleep more often.
