Canadian Member of Parliament Carolyn Parrish had said she hated ‘damned Americans’ and called them bastards in the run-up to the Iraq (news – web sites) war. She found a new moniker, idiots, on Wednesday in discussing the planned U.S. missile defense system.
‘We are not joining the coalition of the idiots. We are joining the coalition of the wise,’ the Liberal legislator told a small group of demonstrators.
Parrish, who had to apologize for her ‘bastards’ remarks last year, at first denied using the word idiots, and when reporters pointed out they had her remarks on tape, she said: ‘I don’t mean Americans are idiots.'”
