An offer they can't refuse

The provincial New Democrat's Nanaimo "mafia" is electing a new godfather. Public Eye has learned the harbour city constituency association's nomination date has been set for September 19. The two contenders: party leadership candidate and ex-Parksville-Qualicum MLA Leonard Krog and British Columbia Ferry and Marine Workers' Union local president Richard Goode. Mr. Krog, the party's former caucus chair, should win the nomination - unless Mr. Goode's Website scares him off. That site has a random quotes section featuring some statements (presumably endorsed by the candidate) that sound threatening or just downright bizarre. Examples include: "I'm trying to die correctly, but it's very difficult, you know;" "When the sword of rebellion is drawn, the sheath should be thrown away;" and "Friends are like fiddle strings, they must not be screwed too tight."


This was also found under random quotes:

I will support whatever regulatory and legislative changes are required to block or make as financially impossible, any further export of BC’s forests into foreign hands without being processed in BC, by local workers.

also this:

It is better to sit down than to stand, it is better to lie down than to sit, but death is the best of all.

but best of all is this:

To talk without thinking is to shoot without aiming.

Okay. I'm a bit weirded out.

All of which makes Richard an ideal candidate for the NDP..
