Can anyone get Jim Pankiw some help?

February 5, 2010

Seriously.  Pankiw needs an intervention.  (If you don’t know who he is, check Wikipedia for a summary.)

I watched the press conference held today to announce that he ‘s going to run for federal office again.   A reporter asked if he was sober but he refused to answer. He’s not well.  Perhaps he was drunk or maybe he’s a chronic alcoholic?  Maybe he has a psychiatric condition?  It’s difficult to know specifics but his behavior made it perfectly clear that he’s not well.  I felt almost guilty for watching.  He seems to have a tremor and his facial expressions were oddly exaggerated.  Add his physical mannerisms to his incoherent answers and I do believe that he needs help.  Is his family doctor watching this?

I hope that the media ignore any future press conferences which he might call.  I really don’t want to watch someone deteriorate on the evening news.

    I’m guessing you’re a NDP or other party supporter to make such a terrible expression.

    For all you know, Jim Pankiw could have the same speech impediment that the King in the Oscar winning movie “The Kings Speech” had.

    Wouldn’t you feel pretty silly for making fun of someone’s differences from your eloquence if that was the case Sir/Madam?

    Your comments above are Heckling at best and at worst are criminal slander or defamation. I can’t believe someone like you would risk their good name by publishing such words.

    For the record, I have never met or communicated with Jim Pankiw in any way and I have no desire to oppose or support his politics at this point unless and until I read his campaign literature… that’s the right way to decide who to vote for.

      Aren’t you about a year late?
