The Full “Crazy Lady Elizabeth May” Speech

Now this is a train wreck.

Don’t do drugs kidz.


Steyn: May Day

I’ve written on many occasions about the “utterly repulsive spectacle” of the White House Correspondents’ Dinner, and this year’s lame-o shtick was more pitiful than ever (scroll down, as low as you can go), and the court eunuchs’ sycophantic laughter at the Sultan’s leaden jests even creepier.

Ottawa’s equivalent nerd prom, the annual parliamentary press gallery bash, isn’t quite as nauseating, mainly because the relationship between the hacks and the pols isn’t quite as psychologically unhealthy – but also because the event doesn’t have the slick polish of hired gag men. I mean, say what you like about Green Party Leader Elizabeth May, but you can’t complain she was over-scripted…

    I think she has been remarkedly sane lately for a Greenie,the supposed meltdown was just a realignment with the common looniness one sees displayed by every Green Party candidate at all
    The political meetings I have attended.
    The woman resembles a deranged beaver at the best of times

    • Deranged Beaver? On a good day maybe.

      • dance…dancetotheradio

        That sounds like a better band name than Pussy Riot.

    • WalterBannon

      deranged beavers have some social and economic value, unlike her

      by the way, she committed EI fraud while she was a student and has still not been charged

  • SDMatt

    The Ceeb cracks me up: yesterday they noted that the PM didn’t attend and with a straight face told us that Rick Mercer therefore made fun of him.

    As if the perpetually unfunny Mercer hasn’t been doing that his whole taxpayer-funded career, as if Mercer wouldn’t have done it with the PM in attendance.

  • Uncle_Waspy

    Wow….May set the crazy bar pretty high there. It’s gonna be tough to beat.

    • barryjr

      Don’t worry he will.

    • Yup it is the new standard for Canadian Politicians. One we can we call be proud of.

    • Canadian

      She beat Calamity Pierre`s fuddle-duddle!

  • WhiteRabbit3

    I hope she went home to her 58 cats and slept it off.

    • Waffle

      She has a houseful of cats? Poor things. I hope they peed on her bed.

      • Ghost of Ed

        No.She peed the bed. The cats got pissed off.

        • Waffle


    • Frances

      Someone needs to check on the welfare of those cats!! There are crazy cat ladies who take care of their cats and crazy cat ladies whose cats end up being killed by the SPCA.

  • Waffle

    Enough already! Lizzie has now received way more than her 15 minutes of fame. Oh, and for all her alleged “smarts”, she should know better than to wear fake pearls (and big ones at that) to a televised event. They show so badly. I’m guessing that she and Kathleen both have the same wardrobe consultant.

  • chayisun

    This woman is an absolute disgrace. To think the taxpayer’s of this country actually pay her salary is beyond the pale. Her “speech” was so idiotic and filled with bile that she should resign from her position as head of the Green Party. If not, she should be run outta town on a rail. A petty, self centred unstable individual who should really see someone for help.
    As for her excuse that she was sleep deprived, or whatever it was, she certainly did appear to have NOT missed out on the free liquor. As for here closing remark about that thug who killed an American medic, she should be ashamed of herself and I hope she pays dearly for that remark. A small minded witch who is ugly both inside and out. No heart, no soul and a loser.

    • Canadian

      I want the greens to keep her!

  • Yusuf_Al_Kafir

    All of the top-rated comments at the CBC are in support of May’s shenanigans?

    Of course they are!

    • The entire Green Party must have been conscripted to astro-turf the Ceeb’s comments.

      • Yusuf_Al_Kafir

        Who’s manning their compost piles?!

        • dance…dancetotheradio

          Preston Manning?

  • Clink9

    I’m just so glad there is nobody as filled with hate and bitter as this in my life.

  • Kaye

    Dear Prime Minister Harper. You are so f*ing wise not to attend these useless, f*ing functions. Incidentally, Lisa Raitt deserves a f*ing promotion.

    • dance…dancetotheradio

      And a dress with sleeves.

      • Waffle

        Give her a break. She’s had serious health problems and menopause either natural or medically-induced can play havoc with one’s body:

        The hardest thing in the world is to be a thin person and suddenly, overnight, you find yourself having to buy your clothes in a fat-lady shop.

        • dance…dancetotheradio

          Both times that I’ve quit smoking for more than a year I gained like thirty pounds.
          For now, I’m on the caffeine, cigarettes and alcohol diet.

          • Waffle

            I hope you don’t wear sleeveless dresses — you sound very Stanley Kowalski.

            Hey, Kowalski was a rapist.
            That’s kinda dirty pool, man.

          • Waffle

            I was thinking of the under shirt. I’d forgotten the rape. You forgot the wife-beating 😉

            By the way, I prefer Henry Chinasky, aka Charles Bukowski.

          • Waffle

            Did he write in his undershirt? BTW, watch those cigs — I screwed up my heart and lungs with my habit.

  • Tom Forsythe

    Suddenly, Duffy’s decision to hire speech writers makes a lot more sense.

  • mobuyus

    I think she was trying to get a date with omar, he might find her very sexy in that convertible burqa she was wearing.

  • Maxsteele

    Good lord, what a drunken hack. Her followers are the same people who hate Rob Ford, that says it all right there.

    • Canadian

      Someone had to recycle what was left in all those glasses on the tables.

  • kkruger71

    What a rambling mess, though to be fair, in context with the rest of it the ending part didn’t seem as bad as when presented by itself. Sort of like the rest of the rambling crazy was building up to it.

  • Waffle

    Oh, I just love it!! Don Martin’s QP is on right now and Lizzie was top of the hour — using Yiddish terminology she doesn’t fully understand. Doubling down on the gaffe front, she was telling Don that her “speech” was all “shtick”. Really, Elizabeth? So this is something you do all the time and are known for? So you use the f-word constantly (despite your protestations to the contrary). Well, how about you take your shtick and STFU?!? On second thought, keep right on doing it. You are highly amusing.

  • Frances

    Ms May needs to remember the adage that, when you point a finger at someone, three fingers point back at you.

  • Luna Tik

    Stop discriminating against her!

    Under the Canadian Charter of Rights even the totally insane have a right to run for Paliament.

    She is only representing her constituents in Saanich—Gulf Islands, which has the second highest number of psychotic people after the Vancouver East riding that elected Libby Davies.

    • Minicapt

      I too blame Jay Curry.


  • She went full nutters.

    You never go full nutters.

  • Minicapt
  • Bataviawillem

    She should lay of the juice, she was hammered in that video.

  • Vanko

    Why is Canada importing Crazy White Ladies?Don’t you have enough Home Grown One’s?

  • Vanko

    Did a Canadian marry her?Did he or she escape?

  • Canadian

    Imagine having that as a PM.
    I`m glad she`s green, so she`ll never make it.
