Oh no. As if he hasn't humiliated us enough. The new/nouveau, kinder, gentler version of Stephen Harper flies off to some snooty economic forum, and makes an absolute fool of himself.
Posing as Great Mother Leader who cares about the women and children of the world. Posing as an economist...from Bible School. Or just talking gibberish.
The PM goes back to his theme of "enlightened sovereignty," and squaring the national interest with the global interest -- on all these issues -- climate change, the economy -- if you don't take the global interest into account, you find yourself making bad decisions, even if they may be politically beneficial in the short term. Wait, this *is* still the prime minister, right? Not a body double? Because this is becoming surreal. Now all we need is someone to pop up and ask about prorogation, and the Yes Men-ification of reality will become complete.
And wait. What's this?
As a politician, you know, you're told over and over by your advisors and by your pollsters that, you know, "do x and x, it's good communications." But my experience is if you do bad policy in the name of good communications, that's going to catch up with you pretty quickly.
Right. Because Stephen Harper doesn't do bad policy. He doesn't believe in cheap photo-ops. And he would never do ANYTHING just to boost his sagging numbers.
Like sentencing kids to adult sentences.
Justice Minister Rob Nicholson released proposals Thursday that would require courts to consider adult sentences for young offenders who commit serious crimes like murder or aggravated sexual assault. The plan would also allow courts to lift publication bans in certain cases.
Because Great Mother Leader loves children you know.
Gawd. I can't believe the thugs in the Con War Room think they are going to get away with this absurd makeover. Think that they can make Canadians love Great Ugly again...like they did when he played the piano.
Because he sure can't fool us.
We know a monster ...or a Con wolf in
And hey hey, ho ho, he's really GOTTA go !!!
Oh yeah...one more thing. For those hosers out there who might be fooled by Stephen Harper's drag nun act, and think that maybe just maybe he's really a.... um....nice guy?
I just want to say pull your tuques down over your noses eh?
And repeat after me:
Because we live in Con Canada eh?
So we got more than enough of them...
