Rex Murphy

You are

Our own

Our own contrarian curmudgeon,

On the CBC at night

You scold both left and right,

Our Christopher Hitchens lite.

O Rex

You dazzle and perplex

Lamenting with your plump prose

The state of the nation

In your antique hand

An after dinner stroll becomes

A post-prandial perambulation.

Rex Murphy is a pundit on the CBC’s nightly news program, the National, which is one of the last old school news programs, complete with paternal anchor man, Peter Mansbridge, and nightly panels of intelligent people who don’t shout at each other. Slim is a big fan, of the National, that is.
