Why does a Prime Minister, born with all the world's advantages, feel the need to physically impose himself on others?
Because he's not so different from anyone else. He needs something to punch.
Whether he's beating the tar out of Patrick Brazeau in a boxing ring or hurling profanities at Peter Kent, our PM doesn't hesitate to steamroll obstacles when challenged.
Nothing in his charmed life, it seems, is an acceptable substitute for just running roughshod over the lesser folk.
Perhaps that's because he knows he can count on an ovation from his minions in caucus and acclaim from his groupies across the nation when he does so, and that a stammering, insincere apology will quiet anyone else who isn't convinced.
The rest can be dismissed as irrelevant, impossible to please, or playing games.
They obviously don't know their betters, or imagine themselves to be on the same level of those who were born with the last name "Trudeau."
These unfortunates must content themselves with reality T.V., junk food, alcohol, or- worst of all -- clickbait political websites.
No matter how much they want to, man handling those who irritate them is just not an option.
And let's be clear -- the reason why Liberals cheered their ruler as he put on his bull-in-a-china-shop act is because they wish they could do what he did to the naysayers who obstructed their agenda.
They can claim all the holier-than-thou progressive moral high ground they wish, profess feminism up and down, and sacrifice themselves on the altar of green energy.
But they still chuckle at the memory of Jean Chretien executing the Shawinigan Handshake or Pierre Trudeau's fuddle-duddle.
Then -- and now -- violence, anger, and brutality in the name of the Liberal cause is excusable. Some things never change, and never will change.
