He is angry, he is desperate, his whole world is collapsing around him under the weight of scandal.
The Duffy problem just keeps getting worse.
Making it almost impossible to claim that he didn't know what was going on.
His shell shocked caucus is revolting. Demanding that he do something, anything, to make this nightmare go away.
But at least now he has his boy wonder running him AND the PMO.

I don't know why Nigel Wright decided to sell his soul to a man like Stephen Harper, the sinister boss of the Con mob.
Or what dark force drove him to cut a $90,000 cheque for the sleazy senator Mike Duffy. A man he hardly knew.
But he sure learned a hard lesson today eh? When you work for the Con mob, and you get caught, it's all YOUR fault. And it's time to disappear.

More than four years later I can still remember how frightened Stephen Harper looked.
The Great Canadian Coalition was threatening to remove him from power. And the people were in the streets.
He was scared, he was desperate. But in the end he survived. The Governor General gave him what he wanted. He was able to kill the idea of a coalition by making it sound like a separatist plot to take over Canada.
But now all these years later, it has come back to haunt him.

Wherever you went in Toronto today you couldn't get away from Rob Ford.
Everybody was talking about him eh?
Wondering whether he's a crack head, or just plain crazy.
So I wasn't really surprised to find him waiting for me on my way home.
And as I stared at this ghastly apparition, I could almost hear him screaming " Somebody get me that !@#!! TAPE.

He has been drunk as a skunk in public.
He has given women and children the finger.
He is a crass, vulgar bigot, and the worst Mayor Toronto has ever known.
Now let Rob Ford explain this one.
A cellphone video that appears to show Mayor Rob Ford smoking crack cocaine is being shopped around Toronto by a group of Somali men involved in the drug trade.
Well he's finally been kicked out of Con caucus.
Senator Mike Duffy has resigned from the Conservative caucus and will sit as an Independent amid controversy over his living and travel expense claims.
Even as the scandals keep on coming.
Sen. Mike Duffy attempted to influence the Canadian Radio-Television and Telecommunications Commission’s upcoming decision involving the right-leaning Sun News Network, a source has told CTV News.
But now at last we can understand why the boys in the PMO were so desperate to try to make the problem go away.

Golly. When I compared the Harper Cons to a cult last night, I forgot to mention one thing eh?
They're are a cult. But they are strongly influenced by The Sopranos .
Where if you get in financial trouble, Tony tells you to go see Vinnie in the back room, and he'll cut you some slack.
Or in the case of the Harper mob, you go to see Nigel at the PMO, and he'll cut you a big cheque.

As you know I have long believed that Stephen Harper's Cons are not a political party like any other Canadians have ever known.
That they are more like a cult than a party.
But even as their deranged leader drags us into his ghastly darkness, muzzles the truth, lies about everything, and bullies his opponents, still some of my friends say to me: Simon, don't exaggerate, it couldn't happen HERE.

Well it was quite a scene in the old neighbourhood last night.
Thousands of members of the Leaf Nation cheering on their team outside the Air Canada Centre.
And the crowd was so excited for the first time in my life I hoped the Leafs would win.
And I was sad when it ended badly. Because those fans do deserve better.
But then so do we all eh? And in that regard I found this defeat extremely encouraging.

Sometimes, especially on a cold spring day like today, I can't help feeling depressed about living in a country like Harperland.
I can't help thinking about how great we might have been, and what the Cons have made of us.
How once we were admired by the rest of the world, as a cool young country with decent, noble values. And how Stephen Harper and his reactionary cult have shamed us, and turned Canada into a grubby little pariah state.
And when I feel like that, as I did today, all I can say is thank goodness for people like Chris Hadfield...
