Upon reflection and upon seeing the bit on Global National last night I have rethought the Rahim Jaffer situation.
He is just an MP who got defeated and still wanted to live the good life in Ottawa. Yeah, I know, good life in Ottawa sounds kind of stupid but if you are an MP or in that world there is lots of fun to be had. Plus the access to fun stuff has to be better as an MP [or ex MP] in Ottawa than as a coffee shop owner in Edmonton.
Mr. Jaffer thought that his Blackberry's address book was the key to staying in the power circle in Ottawa. He thought wrong.
Although I have, one shouldn't blame the boy for trying.
