Awkward and Expensive Times, Brought to You by the Conservative Party of Canada
It’s craziness, isn’t it, taxpayers paying for Stephen Harper to shit talk the Opposition to the media from up in the Arctic. I mean, ferchrissakes, all he has to do is show up in the House of Commons once in a while and he can do all the shit talking he wants to of the Opposition.
We’re already paying for him to do it from there.
But seriously, it’s not hard to see why Pamela Wallin and Mike Duffy might be feeling a little targeted for getting caught fundraising for the Conservative Party on the public dime and then hung out to dry by the Conservative Party when Stephen Harper’s been doing it for years and is in fact doing it right now up in the Arctic.
Why the hell does he want to be Prime Minister if he doesn’t want to govern anyway? Why doesn’t he just go into private business and make something of himself? Geez Louise, talk about do as I say and not as I do, eh?
But I think Toronto Star reporters Robyn Dolittle and Kevin Donovan should sue all those Conservative pundits who attacked their credibility when they broke the story about watching a video of Rob Ford hanging out with drug dealing gangsters smoking crack.
At this point I feel like it’s just you, me and Doug Holyday who don’t have a copy of the video. Although I’m not sure about Doug Holyday. Cripes, some close family friend he turned out to be not knowing that the Fords have been running a gang right under his nose and didn’t trust him enough to cut him in on the proceeds.
NOT that I’m alleging any such thing, of course, so please don’t anybody show up at my door tonight and threaten to break my legs. Although you can break the ganglion I think I might be growing just to the left of my inside ankle, left leg – which has so far only been diagnosed by the internet.
The internet will be the death of us all, won’t it.
Meanwhile, as a Canadian, and more particularly an Ottawan, I’m not looking forward to the coming awkwardness of Rob Ford et al being exposed as incredible liars to the max about what they’ve been up to when not behaving erratically at work and/or play and/or on the radio.
Everybody’s having a good laugh about the stealth snowmobile that cost us over $600,000 that was developed by the Department of Defence to be used in Arctic military manoeuvres but I’m wondering why the technology can’t be applied to Saturday morning leaf blowers and chain saws.
I really can’t think of a better indictment of modern capitalism than the leaf blower, can you? Spam, maybe.
Oh, and taxpayers paying for Stephen Harper to shit talk the Opposition to the media from up in the Arctic.
