Pat Martin Twitter

Pat Martin Twitter, Martin’s effing point of order So NDP Pat Martin got a bit sweary on Twitter after the Conservative government shut down parliamentary debate on the budget bill. “This is a f–king disgrace. Closure again. And on the Budget? There’s not a democracy in the world that would tolerate this jackboot s–t.”
He followed it with “For gods sake. In these uncertain economic times, don’t you think our parliament should be debating our federal budget?”
Someone on Twitter then attacked him for capitalizing “Budget” but not the name of our lord the father, and Martin responded: “F–k you.” (Which is weird. My readers would berate me for the missing apostrophe.)
I love Pat Martin. He gets fired up about the right stuff, types quickly and when he hears from pedants, tells them to get stuffed. A man after my own irascible heart.
Martin tweets the way I talk, but I will never be allowed to tweet-swear. I can’t talk dirty in columns even now, when people on TV talk more about vgnas than they do about ankles, and frankly you actually need ankles. Try going a day without ankles. Just try it.
I am allowed to tell fragments of dirty jokes and if I ever write a column about one of the most deplorable of the Republican candidates, I can safely advise readers with a strong stomach to Google the word “Santorum.” Rick Santorum despises gays, which is all the background you’ll need to get the joke.
But I’m startled and distressed by NDP interim leader and full-time sedative Nycole Turmel saying Martin’s “language was not appropriate and could have been offensive to some.” Oh the deadening sound of one Canadian warning another Canadian that’s he’s verging on being interesting, even stirring and emboldening, so tone it down, buddy.
