Holy Mayan prophesy. I think I now know how the Con regime is going to end eh?
Not with a bang but a whimper. With acts of sheer folly, and howls of laughter.
For there was Stephen Harper today, in the Con circus that was once our Parliament, accusing the NDP of being a "gong show."
While some of his rednecks hollered "don't get angry Tom, have another drink." Even the Con Speaker was shocked.
Harper referred to the NDP line of questioning Wednesday as "The Gong Show" and called Mulcair a "pretender" for trying to be a friend of Alberta.
And the real gong show was this debacle.
Peter and Rona in the As the World Turns or Comes Crashing Down On Us show.
Where Dumbo MacKay in a desperate attempt to escape the death dive of the stealth dollar gobbler, lunged for the patriot card instead of the ejection button.
He might have made it easier to hear his answers without wincing had he just admitted to past mistakes. Failing that mature, obvious response, he might have clung to a fragment of dignity by resolving at least not to drag Canadian men and women in uniform into it.
But no. He couldn’t restrain himself. He couldn’t resist bringing up his concern for the troops when pointedly asked if he had any regrets about his past harsh words toward critics who raised what turned out to be entirely valid concerns about the F-35 program.

If one of the nine nations committed to the oft-maligned program reduces or cancels its orders, the price goes up for everyone else. With Washington poised to slash defence spending, either voluntarily or by the force of a congressional deadline, there is the real possibility the U.S. could dramatically reduce the number of F-35s it intends to buy from the current 2,243.
And the bottom line is the Cons were caught trying to conceal the inconvenient truth, and/or cook the books, and they are going to be wearing this debacle all the way to the next election.
Which is no doubt why Harper has been looking and sounding like he's losing his mind eh?
Although this couldn't have helped.
Abacus found 34% of those surveyed support the Conservatives. That's down two percentage points since Abacus' last survey in November and is down from 40% a year ago. The Conservatives have not been that low in the polls since November 2010, when 33% of voters were on their side.
Slowly but surely the Teflon is peeling off him. Slowly but surely the wings of the Con regime are falling off.
Mayday !!!! Mayday !!!!
The Monkey King is cracking up.
And the Cons are going down...
