Terry Glavin and the heights of politeness

You just have to listen to this priceless dialog: Terry Glavin discusses Afghanistan with a NDP MP Denise Savoie.

When you read Terry's post about the dialog, it is clear that he, being great and nice people, goes out of the way to be nice to Ms Savoie. Well, after listening to her vacuous mumbling about a diplomatic solution, about withdrawal of troops, about letting other people (UN - what does UN mean for her, it's interesting - all these yellow, black and brown people or what?) handle this, I don't feel obliged to be polite. She came out plainly stupid.

What is worrying in this case, though, that her kind of stupidity seems to be contagious.
