It ain’t good, that’s for sure! 

Just yesterday I had to update my Monday blog entry because the fair and balanced state-owned CBC Newsworld kept changing its mind about the Conservative government’s Minister of Foreign Affairs, Maxime Bernier, and how to officially describe his, um, verbal malfunction

On Monday I showed you how Canada’s cable news networks—the state-owned one and the citizen-owned one against which they compete—instructed us to think of the Conservative Minister of Foreign Affairs’, um, verbal malfunction.

Liberalvision CTV called it a “blunder”.

The state-owned CBC (never one to bung-up anything!) called it a “bungle”.

So I guessed it was official:  We were to think of this as “blunder”.  (CBC had still refrained from adding “-gate” at the end however!  Wow!)

Still, we’re not yet told by the CBC, as they’ve instructed us in the past, to add a “-gate” after gaffe, as in “Harper Conservative Gaffe-Gate”.

Vote liberal and end all the diplomatic bungle blunder gaffes.
