Jealousy, thy name is Mulroney

Everyone is talking about Mulroney’s rather nasty attack on Pierre Trudeau. The irony of this is that it shows why Mulroney will be remembered in the same way that Trudeau is. What sort of petulant little man would unleash this sort of tirade on a deceased former Prime Minister? I suspect that Mulroney hates how Trudeau is a national icon while he is viewed as a mediocre prime minister at best (if not still outright hated). Mulroney must ponder why his fellow-traveler, Ronald Reagan was so well loved by so many in the US, and why an ideological opponent is so well loved here.

These sorts of stupid outbursts reveal the brittle high opinion Mulroney has of himself, something he can only maintain through the slagging of others.
