O'Connor: Torturer gets Whip

I don't even want to comment on the rest of the ministers. None of it matters with the absolute iron-fisted control that Harper exercises over his ministers, preventing any of them from speaking to the press without vetting everything through his own office.

This is the one that gets me:
Jay Hill takes over as House leader and Gordon O'Connor replaces Mr. Hill as Chief Government Whip.


The man who told our soldiers and officers that it was okay to send prisoners off to authorities that he knew were torturing prisoners - even killing them.

The man who lied to Parliament about the Red Cross being able to inform us if any torture were occurring.

The man who resigned in disgrace because of his lying.

And they make him The Whip.

I believe, in literature, they call that "over-written".
