We know that Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin have an unusually warm relationship.
We know that Trump greatly admires the Russian strongman, and that Putin feels the same way about him.
And although they do make an odd couple, I have always assumed it was just one power hungry narcissist, admiring the other.
But what if it was something more sinister?

It speaks to the horror of the Republican convention that although Donald Trump did declare it an enormous success.
As only he could.
The Washington Post editorial board has seen enough.
And has decided to endorse Hillary Clinton about three months earlier than it normally would.
Canada's premiers have made more progress in the last few months than they made in the almost ten years Stephen Harper ruled this country.
And they do have good reason to celebrate.
But there is always one party pooper, and it would have to be Brad Wall.
The grubby little oil pimp from Saskatchewan, who spent much of that meeting complaining that Justin Trudeau wasn't there.
So he could tell him how much he hates the idea of a carbon tax.

I think I've mentioned this before. I once had a lot of trouble calling Donald Trump a fascist.
I didn't want to diminish the word. Or the suffering of its many victims.
I also knew that he was planning to use Richard Nixon's 1968 law and order speech to the Republican convention as a template for his own.
But the deranged rant he delivered last night, wasn't even warmed up Nixon, it was far worse.

For twenty years as the head of Fox News, Roger Ailes helped shaped the current form of the Republican Party.
And turn politics in that country into a sewer.
But today it was his turn to be flushed into that same sewer.
It was already the most bizarre political convention in modern American history. A third rate Nuremberg rally if ever there was one.
But for Donald Trump yesterday had to be the worst day so far.
For first he had to try to defend his wife, for the way she stole parts of her speech from Michelle Obama.

At first glance they may seem like an odd couple. And it's not a pretty sight.
But if you think about it, it really is a match made in Con heaven.
Because as we all know Ezra Levant and Jason Kenney have a lot in common.
Both are bigots, Kenney loves appearing on Levant's hate mongering show.
And as for the ghastly Rebel Commander, he can't do enough to help his buddy Jason "liberate" Alberta.

I got back home just in time to watch the New York delegation push Donald Trump over the top.
And make him officially the Republican party's candidate for President.
And while it was no surprise, and it was some consolation to know that everybody was talking about this.
When Michelle Rempel was a screeching cog in the Con regime, she used to spend a lot of time trying to stop refugees from coming to Canada.
But since she was evicted from power, she now spends a lot of time accusing the Liberals of not accepting enough Yazidis, a Kurdish minority group in Iraq that has been singled out for particularly brutal treatment by the ISIS crazies.
Claiming that while the Harper regime cared passionately about their fate.
The Liberals aren't doing enough to save them.

As we all know Rona Ambrose and her Cons are having a really hard time attracting any star leadership candidates.
The only candidates they have managed to attract so far, like a candle attracts bugs, couldn't be more boring or more mediocre.
And it seems, more delusional.
