Breathtakingly absurd

Dust my broom has some thoughts on a Winnipeg Free Press column...it's worth a read.

Apparently “acting like an Indian” is the missing ingredient needed to end all of our misery and suffering. Buy a buckskin jacket, grow your hair, move into a home filled with zonolite and suddenly you will see what it’s like to be an indian.

Can I ask, exactly how different is this from putting on a headress and warpaint at Halloween and going around saying ‘How” to everyone?

Minstrel racism is OK when Indians say it’s OK, I suppose. Ditto for lip-service.

Also, in order to get cred with the constituents, does this mean that the Agriculture minister should don overalls and rubbers, hit the field and shovel shit? Or the Justice Minister grab a shotgun and kick down the door of a crackhouse?

Breathtakingly absurd.
