Stephen Harper and the Giant Woodpecker
One of the few funny things about Stephen Harper's Billion Dollar Porker Summit, apart from the fake lake, is this giant woodpecker pecking away at a telephone pole right outside the place where the leaders will be meeting.
Because it just seems so appropriate for a wank fest of that magnitude. And I wouldn't be surprised if after a couple of days in Harperville, the summit leaders start calling it Steve.
As in very pretty, but not too bright, extremely irritating, and possibly dangerous.
Which reminds me of how this ghastly gorilla show in my neighbourhood has made an old and controversial Liberal attack ad look practically PROPHETIC...
OMG. I KNEW they didn't make this up. It just took a little bit longer to happen.
Top military snipers who served in Afghanistan will be stationed on the rooftops of highrises around the Metro Convention Centre when leaders of the G20 countries meet June 26-27, officials say.
“There’s going to be a massive—absolutely massive—presence of police and security on the ground like you’ve never seen before.”
Great eh? Soldiers in the streets. In Canada. In MY neighbourhood.
Golly. I knew Stephen Harper had this weird crush on Stalin. I knew he's a lousy economist. But this is ridiculous.
But then when I look at this old cartoon it also seems prophetic...
Because now I know who the insurgents are...the people of this riding who NEVER vote Conservative.
Oh boy. I'd like to say that we're all LIVING for the day when the Cons are defeated. As they will be after this grotesque gorilla show.
Busloads of out-of-town police were reportedly being shepherded inside the former Toronto Film Studios on Eastern Ave., where police have set up a hush-hush temporary jail for processing detained protesters.
But of course right now, thanks to Great Peckerhead Leader, who put his boondoggle of a summit in the middle of a residential neighbourhood.
And snipers on the rooftops.
We're just hoping to survive eh?
And so is Woody...
