Thin skin?

In this campaign the Bloc has called me every name in the book. They literally went through the entire dictionary. And not the Little Robert [a standard French dictionary, comparable to the Oxford]. The Big Robert.
- Stephen Harper

A claim of unfairness, from a man whose party carried on a relentless campaign against St├ęphane Dion that often got about as personal as it is possible to get, almost from the moment Dion was first elected Liberal party leader, months before the election was ever called?

Were attacks to be allowed only in one direction, the cheek to stay turned until it no longer mattered?

One would think such a one would be less whiny.
