One might think by the way Rona Ambrose goes on and on about bombing people, that she was born to kill.
And that she just can't help herself...
But although she is deeply disturbed, the real reason is that ever since she saw this poll.
She's been going wild, and I mean WILD, trying to use the issue to bomb her favourite target: Justin Trudeau.

As I pointed out recently, Big Oil's sinking fortunes are driving its faithful hooker Rex Murphy over the deep end.
He has been using his bully pulpits on The National and in the National Post to blame everybody but Stephen Harper for the dire situation in Alberta.
But even by his low standards this deranged rant is absolutely outrageous.
Well yesterday was the day the MSM decided to devote a lot of their coverage to Justin Trudeau's first 100 days in office.
And I must say I found it a rather depressing spectacle.
For there they were toting up his promises, made, kept, or in their opinion broken. Already.
Like a bunch of grubby bank clerks, writing up some small company's balance sheet.
And in my opinion completely missing the big picture.
Three days after Bernie Sanders' victory in New Hampshire I'm still floating on a cloud, and dreaming up a storm.
I still can't quite believe my eyes. How could an old leftie calling for a revolution in the United States of America manage to win so convincingly?
But I suppose it's only fitting that it happened in a state with the motto "Live Free or Die."
For it is a new American revolution, and at its core is a simple but radical idea.

If there is an enduring image of Stephen Harper's grotesque regime I suppose it will be something like that one.
A lot of Con hogs heading for the trough, or trying to buy an election.
And sticking the rest of us with the bill.

Well let's put it this way, it wasn't one of Rona Ambrose's better days.
It's not that she's had many good ones. She hasn't.
But this was a day of triple embarrassment.
First Kevin O'Leary took aim at Rona's bombing fixation.
Then the American military made her look foolish.
Well it's looks as if Kevin O'Leary has blown his last chance for a new career in politics.
He's too late to run for the Tea Party in the United States, even though he lives in Boston.
And now he's just destroyed any hope he had of becoming the new leader of the Harper Party.
Ever since Paul Godfrey ordered his major Postmedia papers to run an ad on their front pages attacking the Liberals, there has been no doubt whatsoever which side that media conglomerate is on.
And although the move was widely denounced, it seems that Godfrey no intention of backing down, and is even more determined to destroy Justin Trudeau.
For the anti-Trudeau chorus from his hapless minions is becoming almost deafening.
As Michelle Rempel reminded me yesterday.

Now I understand why Justin Trudeau took his time before unveiling our new military mission in Iraq and Syria.
For it was worth the wait.
It's far more rational and sophisticated than the Con's one dimensional bombing mission.
Much bigger than Rona Ambrose had hoped.
And far more Canadian.
She was called Stephen Harper's "enforcer", or just "The Beast." The one who took no prisoners.
She ran the last Con campaign, and drove it off a cliff.
Before she was tossed off the bus, and out of her master's inner circle.
But now Jenni Byrne is back, and blaming everyone but herself.
