Well there he was in Question Period, looking and sounding like a robot, refusing to say why his Cons are refusing to cooperate with Elections Canada.
Repeating the same answer over and over again.
“Mr. Speaker, I gave clear answers regarding the activities of the Conservative party of Canada,” he professed. “All this information has been available to Elections Canada since the beginning. Now is the time for the opposition, which has spent millions of dollars to make hundreds of thousands of phone calls, to give all its information to Elections Canada.”
As did his robot
“The opposition paid millions of dollars to make hundreds of thousands of phone calls,” Dean Del Mastro read aloud from the script on his desk. “Before continuing these baseless smears, they should prove that their own callers are not behind these reports.”
Making a mockery out of Parliament.
For the sake of making a more efficient use of his time, Mr. Harper might as well have provided Peter Van Loan with a tape recording and instructions to press play at the appropriate time.
But then who should be surprised eh? When Great RoboCon Leader hates Elections Canada almost as much as he hates the Liberals.
His loathing for the election overseers was almost pathological, recalls Gerry Nicholls, the conservative commentator who worked with Mr. Harper at the NCC. It was a “blood feud,” he says, one that appears to be “never ending.”
And his Cons are just trying to deflect attention from their grotesque conspiracy to steal an election. Again.
With the help of the robot Speaker.
Scheer said that when MPs are personally threatened for their work in Parliament, it must be taken seriously.
"These threats demonstrate a flagrant disregard of our traditions and a subversive attack on the most fundamental privileges of this House.
As if the Cons aren't showing a flagrant disregard for our Parliamentary traditions, and their plot to steal an election isn't a subversive attack on the fundamental principles of our democracy.
But that's OK eh? Because this scandal can only get bigger.
And if Stephen Harper sounds like a robot today, tomorrow he'll sound like Richard Nixon...
For it was Nixon who famously said: “It’s not the crime that kills you, it’s the coverup.”
Yup. As I've said so many times before, we have those Votergate Cons where we want them.
And sooner or later we will destroy them...
I mean we have to eh?
Before they turn this country into a police state.
And the horny Toews robot comes after us...
