Oh boy. To think the Senate used to be known as the House of Sober Second Thought.
But that was long ago eh?
Now it's known as Stephen Harper's House of the Gobbling Con Turkeys. Or just Puffy's Place.
Conservative Senator Mike Duffy’s office contacted Prince Edward Island’s minister of health to discuss expediting an application for a provincial health card after being asked to produce documents proving he lives in the province.
Gawd. Can you believe that? Have you ever seen Puffy move so fast?
In December, the Senate Standing Committee on Internal Economy launched an audit in response to media reports that questioned the expenses some senators claimed for their Ottawa-area homes. The committee wrote to the senators on December 12 telling them to produce documentation of their primary residence by Jan. 31, this past Thursday.
Since he transitioned overnight from "objective journalist" to Stephen Harper's most slobbering supporter. Turned into a Con attack
It takes considerable effort to become a complete embarrassment. Congratulations Senator Mike Duffy, you've finally done it.
Many senators are decent types trying to make intelligent and constructive contributions to public policy. But Mike Duffy's only value has become that of poster boy for why the Senate needs, at very least, major reform if not outright abolition.
Or showing his crassness and his vulgarity.
"I was disappointed to see that our dynamic young premier in Prince Edward Island, Robert Ghiz, has climbed into bed with the premier of Newfoundland and Labrador and honourable senators know what a grotesque scene that is,'' Duffy said in the Senate.
"Do honourable senators know what happens when two politicians climb into bed together? One of them comes out on top and I am afraid that when one is in bed with Danny Williams he will come out on top and I would hate to see where that will leave P.E.I. in the end.''
During the Conservatives annual meeting, Duffy used stronger language suggesting that when "two men'' get in bed, "one is going to get the shaft.''
Or just plumbing the depths of depravity as only he can.
Of course, Duffy isn't the only crass Con Senator. Or the only one being asked to prove where he really lives.
A CTV News report last year raised questions about why Conservative Senator Patrick Brazeau claimed residency expenses while living in Gatineau. Brazeau lists his primary residence in his father’s apartment in Maniwaki, Quebec, the report said.
But I just want to say that even when I was a VERY young blogger, and was just Iearning the dark art of photo shopping.
I always thought that Puffy would make a REALLY bad turkey...
And five years later I would make his head a little bigger, but I haven't changed my mind.
I want him fired, the Cons defeated, and the Senate abolished.
Although now that the carving knife is descending, and the stuffing is oozing out of both ends, I want him to know I'm not bitter eh?
I'm HUNGRY !!@#!!
Mike !!!!!! Mike !!!!!!
Woof !!!!!! Woof !!!!!!
Can we have a last dance together?
