Peter MacKay gets hitched (where’s the helicopter? 

Twitter lit up with jokes after news broke that Conservative cabinet minister Peter Mackay married an Iranian-born human rights activist and former beauty queen, Nazanin Afshin-Jam.
  1. Peter MacKay has married his girlfriend in Mexico. Apparently, Mexico was the only country that would let that kind of thing happen.
  2. If Peter MacKay becomes a father, I’m guessing he’ll be one of those helicopter parents.
  3. Hope Peter MacKay’s wife decides to hyphenate: Nazanin Afshin-Jam MacKay. Might need a rescue helicopter to carry that handle…
  4. RT @adam_ramsay: Peter MacKay got hitched. Hope he got her to sign a prenup. You would just hate to lose your plane over a failed marriage.
  5. I hear Peter MacKay is having infant seats installed in all Cormorant Helicopters in preparation for when they start their family.
  6. RT @MMandryk: Peter MacKay just got married. So will the honeymoon be anywhere National Defence flies? #cdnpoli
  7. RT @pdmcleod: Even cynics must admit it’s beautiful that Peter MacKay got married in a basket being airlifted by a search and rescue helicopter.

  16. Is it just me or does the ‘Peter Mackay marrying Iranian Beauty Queen’ thing have a George Clooney political-thriller written all over it?
  17. Oh noes! Peter Mackay is off the market! Whatever will women do? Oh yeah, avoid canine-framed insults in the House. And the Wrath of Condi.
