I didn't check out Great Porker Leader's Economic Statement today to hear what he had to tell a Con rally instead of Parliament.
Because I knew it would just be the usual
Harper did not make any new announcements, highlighting instead a long list of public projects.
With an annoying chorus of oinks and grunts.
No I checked out the rally because I heard that real journalists wouldn't be allowed to ask questions.
And I wanted to hear what kind of questions the Con hog Mike Duffy would ask.
Because I feared the worst...
But alas, I was only able to grab one lousy shot of him posing as a journalist, before the networks suddenly switched to coverage of the Swine Flu pandemic.
Which all things considered seems kind of appropriate eh?
But what now? Will there be an election? My heart says yes. Oh please send these piggies to market.
But my head tells me Don Martin is right.
So what to do now that the second in the updated series has been released? Big hint: No summer election.
Sure, opinion polls have lurched into the Liberals' favor by margins wide enough to dangle a potential minority government, but the update suggests enough deficit-financed stimulus is entering the system to prevent an election until the fall.
Damn. Although I do like what he had to say about Duffy.
That this new senator persists in being the most shameless Conservative shill in the Senate, after decades of alleged neutrality as a journalist, has tainted a once-formidable reputation beyond repair. As such, pretending Senator Duffy has the credibility to deliver a serious government message to former press gallery rivals was a total photo-op failure. Grade: D.
Because if the Cons can't figure that one out , it shows how clueless and sleazy, and above all DESPERATE they are.
Like these two PMO operatives watching Lisa Raitt perform the other day.
Which tells me all I need to know to enjoy my summer.
Sooner or later these piggy Cons will be trotted off to the bacon factory of history. And they know it.
Ham sandwich anyone?
With Duffy in the Con pig pen there should be enough for EVERYONE....
