I don't have much time to blog today, but I do need to say this before I rush off into the crazy world that we have made for ourselves.
At a time when Donald Trump is apparently preparing to reverse protections for transgender students.
At a time when our own Cons can't bring themselves to use the word Islamophobia, even after the horror of that mosque massacre in Quebec City.
At a time when it seems that right-wing bullies are out of control all over the world, I'm glad that today is Pink Shirt Day.

I have always despised Milo Yiannopoulos so much, I can barely write about him without feeling like throwing up.
He is an alt-right clown, a grotesque misogynist, a bigot and a bully if ever there was one, a man who calls Donald Trump "Daddy."
And from my personal perspective, the gay equivalent of an Uncle Tom.
So I must admit I couldn't be more delighted by the fate that has befallen him.

Donald Trump has now been president for a full month, and already his presidency seems to be falling apart.
His ratings are falling like a stone, psychiatrists can't decide whether he's mentally ill or just senile.
And the Swedes are wondering what he's been smoking.
So the obvious question is, how can we get rid of him?
I didn't watch the latest Con leadership debate in Vancouver yesterday afternoon, for two very good reasons.
One, I couldn't find it on any TV channel I get, or anywhere on the dark internet.
And two, it was too nice and warm outside to waste even an hour of my life.
Which turned out to be a good call, because the debate was a total farce.

As you know, when I heard that Kellie Leitch had described Ezra Levant's latest bigot fest as a meeting of "severely normal people" I was naturally sceptical.
For how could anyone call a meeting organized by Levant and his scummy Rebel gang, and starring four Con candidates, and the bloated homophobe Charles McVety, anything but a freak show?
But then a reader sent me a video of the sordid event and I was absolutely horrified.
When I was a very small boy I used to dream of driving a bus, and the bigger the better.
But it didn't take me very long to realize that the job wasn't as glamorous as I had imagined.
And that I probably would never have the skill or the patience to be a good driver.
Which was just as well because it turned out the job could also be dangerous.
So I really can't understand why the Cons behaved so badly in the House of Commons the other day.

It should be obvious by now that there is something terribly wrong with Donald Trump.
This deranged tweet he fired off yesterday is only more evidence of that.
For in a normal world he would have been arrested for inciting violence against the media.
And then there was that bizarre press conference.

This is how the Cons would like us to imagine them. As the kind of party that would send out a Valentine card like that one.
Inviting us to bee their friends.
But of course, the Cons and the truth don't go as well together as honey and peanut butter.
And this is who they really are.

It's hard to believe, it couldn't be more ugly, or less Canadian.
But just two weeks after a white supremacist killed six Muslims in a Quebec City mosque, and wounded eight others.
A group of Con leadership candidates attended a foul rally in Toronto last night to denounce a government motion aimed at doing more to fight Islamophobia.

If the Mad King Donald thought that Mad Mike Flynn's sudden departure would end his so-called "RussIan problem," it appears he was sadly deluded.
For that problem just keeps getting bigger and bigger.
Dan Rather is now comparing it to the Watergate scandal, and calling for an independent investigation.
"Damn the lies, full throttle forward on the truth ... We deserve answers and those who are complicit in this scandal need to feel the full force of justice."
And as for the Mad King Donald, he's growing angrier and angrier.
