Oh no. Gag me with a pork chop. John Ivison is so
As Candice Hoeppner stood up in the House of Commons this afternoon to defend herself against Liberal accusations that her fight to scrap the long-gun registry effectively condones domestic violence, it reminded me of a British drama that appeared on screens over here recently.
The Amazing Mrs. Pritchard featured a perky blond supermarket manager, angry at the state of politics, who decides to run, gains national attention and ends up as Prime Minister of Great Britain
Can you believe that? Down John down. She may be a hooker for the gun lobby. But she's got STANDARDS. Oink. Oink.
C'mon let's get SERIOUS. Despite all the money the Cons spent on her campaign, Candy "I'd kill Bambi" Hoeppner failed to deliver the cold dead body of the gun registry.
She spent so much time out of the country Vic Toews had to put on a blonde wig and pretend he was her. And she's lucky she wasn't arrested for fraud, for claiming it really really REALLY was a private members's bill. Shame on her.
I mean don't morals count for ANYTHING anymore?
And I doubt we'll be seeing too much of her after this debacle. Did you see how Stephen Harper treated her on the staircase?
Although he repeated himself at least THREE times, he didn't give Candy a chance to say a WORD. She just had to stand there. And then follow him meekly up the stairs. Like a good Con wife.... or a handmaiden.
But then we know what Stephen Harper thinks of women eh? Too bad
And then there are all those other reasons why the Cons lost big.
(1) It's never a good idea to try to pit rural Canadians against urban Canadians, when the latter make up EIGHTY per cent of the population.
(2) We haven't even started to target the Cons from urban areas who betrayed the wishes of their constituents. And boy are they going to get it. Why DO they hate women soooooooo much?
(3) The Con MP's in Quebec were already the walking dead or Zombies. Now they're just dead. And without Quebec the Cons can FORGET about a majority.
(4) It's hard enough posing as crime fighters and going after invisible criminals. So imagine how hard it's going to be now that they have to explain why they hate police officers soooooooo much. Isn't threatening the lives of cops a crime? Why do these Cons want to make our streets slippery with blood? Are they the real criminals?
(5) The gun registry debate made Michael Ignatieff look like a strong leader.
When Mr. Ignatieff is not tentatively jabbing at his opponent, he often swings wildly—sweeping overhand rights that finish a foot or two off the mark and leave the Liberal leader off balance and prone for a counterattack. Here, though, was a sharp right hook, a tight, finely aimed blow to the chin.
And, lo and behold, it seemed legitimately to stagger Mr. Harper.
And it made the NDP look like a party that listened.
Which to me sounds like a win win situation.
(6) Stephen Harper's attempt to pit Canadian against Canadian in a country as fragile as this one, has only made him look even more like a dangerous maniac. Or an AMERIKAN.
And only fired up our desire to get rid of him and his foul AmeriCons.
Now somebody please tell Candy the bad news...
Because the brutal truth is the Cons have shown their ugly divisive faces.
The country can't afford them any longer, if it wants to remain one country.
In the next election it's now Canada versus Amerika.
And we are going to DESTROY them....
