I was shocked to hear of the news that our potty mouthed exhausted old party boy of a Mayor has been appointed to the senate.

Senator Campbell as he shall henceforth be known, hasn't displayed the skills one would think a Senator should posses. Instead of building bridges, Mr Campbell, burns them. Just ask any of his former allies sitting on Council. For that matter ask his former appointment to the police board, Ms Kelly MacDonald, who he brow-beated to death when she didn't go along with his treasonous ways.

While Mayor Campbell will crow about his popularity, and what a terrific job he did in his short-lived role as Vancouver Mayor, his ability to work well with others and his record of public office doesn't back up his wayward claim.

Remember, this is the man who left a whopping debt in his wake after his departure from COPE, the party which financially backed him, supported him and ultimately bore the brunt of his whopper-size ego.

So what happens when Mayor Campbell takes his seat as the Liberal Senator from BC. Since Senators are appointed for life or until they reach the mandatory retirement age of 75, expect Mr Campbell when he doesn't get his way, to pack his bags and cross the floor to sit as a Independent Senator. If federal Liberals don't believe this will happen, just watch and see. His track record confirms this. Although it should be comical when Senator Campbell deadpans that the Liberals are not centrist enough for his liking.

So while Prime Minister Martin believes he has added another Liberal Senator and while there is no doubt Mr Campbell will set the Senate chamber on fire, unfortunately, the flames will come as a result of his alcohol induced outbursts. And as we know from his reign of terror, anyone who gets in his way better watch out!

Larry Campbell's appointment is most unsenator-like and Prime Minister Martin should be spanked for displaying this careless disregard for the citizens of Canada.

Larry is a intellectual lightweight and the PMO knows this and that's why he was appointed to the Old Boys Club

Your blog poll is pretty bad and misleading.

I did not mean your blog was bad Jamie, I emailed some ides as to a better way to put the question in your poll. As a supporter of Larry Campbell, I would not respond to the poll the way you have it worded.

Just a thought as to what could attract more response.
