Let's Just Make It Up

The next time I get a work evaluation that contradicts what I think is true, I'm going to take a lead from Mr. Bernier and just ignore it.

Foreign Affairs Minister Maxime Bernier contradicted all publicly available assessments of security in southern Afghanistan Sunday with a bold claim that insurgent attacks have decreased in Kandahar, leaving the province more secure for humanitarian work.

"The territory is more secure now today, here in Kandahar than it was a year ago," Mr. Bernier said. "Look just a year ago what happened, there were many attacks, and the attacks have diminished."

"Statistics, smatistics!" he added. He then went on to state the sky is actually green, the earth orbits around the sun and Prime Minister Harper is not an android sent from a future wasteland where the machines have risen and taken over.
