In whipping himself into a lather over the Sponsorship Scandal, Stephen Harper said something to the effect of "They don't know right from wrong" referring to the Liberals.
Well, it seems that he is no better himself. In recent days, we've begun to hear about Paul Wolfowitz's dishonorable conduct as head of The World Bank Group. The particulars of Wolfowitz's conduct are immaterial here - he abused his position and authority and got caught.
It was the comments from Canada's Minister of Finance, Jim Flaherty that caught me. Apparently, he thinks Wolfowitz didn't do anything wrong. This coming from the man who controls the purse strings in Ottawa, and holds only slightly less sway than the Prime Minister as a result. He can't see anything wrong with Wolfowitz breaking the rules - in fact, he apologizes for Wolfowitz, and tries to paint it all as a giant media conspiracy.
Talk about not being able to tell right from wrong!
