Stephen Harper's Halloween Nightmare
I'm quite sure that when he was a callow youth Halloween was Stephen Harper's favourite holiday.
A day when he could bully and scare other kids to death, and get away with it.
Just like he now horrifies decent Canadians, every day of the year.
So I wasn't surprised to see him order a Con MP, from Transylvania, to sink his teeth into the NDP's imaginary carbon tax.
While vampires suck blood from their victims, the NDP’s very scary carbon tax would suck money from Canadians’ pockets. Mr. Speaker, I do not want to tax your carbon, but the NDP’s Halloween trick is the terrifying tax. That is why Canadians are calling on us to put a stake through the heart of the horrendous hair-raising carbon tax. Happy Halloween.
Or command his braying minions to pass a police state bill banning masks.
To show his love of Halloween, and his contempt for democracy.
Only to be scared shitless himself, when the ghost of Michael Sona suddenly came back to haunt him.
Sona said the Conservative Party headquarters was closely involved in the local Guelph campaign. "We were a target seat for a while and there was a lot of direction from headquarters," he said, with people often dropping into the campaign office or offering advice.
To remind Canadians who was REALLY running the horror show in that riding.
So it's really not surprising that a photo-op with kiddies at 24 Sussex Drive, which was supposed to make him look half human, turned out so badly.
Not just because Harper was so shaken, he forgot his lines...
But also because his bodyguards, who are clearly as paranoid as he is, treated the poor children like terrorists.
A devil's pitchfork, a swashbuckler's cutlass and at least a couple of fancy swords were among several Halloween toy weapons prohibited at Prime Minister Stephen Harper's residence — though a pint-sized Wolverine passed the screening area bearing faux claws.
Oh boy. I guess the NDP was right eh?
Don't go looking for treats at Harper's House of Horror.
For all you'll get is dirty tricks and monster budget bills.
Or as I always say eh?
Who needs Halloween when we live in Harperland?
Who needs horror?
When we got Harper...
