On selective ignorance

Just so we're clear about Stephen Harper's idea of integrity in the prime minister's office...

As far as Harper's PMO is concerned, an accusation of prime ministerial impropriety in office which hasn't yet been made public is to be swept under the rug.

But once that accusation is made public and can't be avoided, then and only then is it it time to start feigning concern about the need to "protect the office of the prime minister".

Once again, the real message is that Harper won't stand for an iota more accountability than he can avoid - either for himself or for his mentor. And that pervasive attitude among Harper and his minions poses a far greater danger to the integrity of the PMO than anything Mulroney is alleged to have done.
