Boss Harper and the Ford Duffy Nightmare
Golly. I'm sure Stephen Harper must look back fondly at the time when he had big plans for Rob Ford.
Those happy days when him and Big Boy could pose together under the logo of the Toronto police, declare they were for law and order, unlike the opposition who were for the criminals.
And Boss Harper could still dream that the Ford gang and the drooling rednecks of the Ford Nation, would deliver the bleeding head of progressive Toronto to him on a silver platter.
But sadly for him, that was then, and this is now.
Toronto police detectives interviewed a senior staff member from Mayor Rob Ford’s office a week ago in relation to allegations involving the widening crack video scandal.
Now the police are knocking on Con doors. The Ford gang is running for cover. Big Boy is looking more and more like a LOSER.
Toronto Mayor Rob Ford told reporters Monday that it is "business as usual" at city hall, despite the abrupt departure of a handful of his senior staff and lingering questions about a still-unseen video that allegedly shows him using crack cocaine.
The Progressive gang has now scraped up enough dough to buy the crack video.
The U.S.-based website Gawker hit its goal Monday of raising the $200,000 needed to purchase a video that allegedly captured Mayor Rob Ford smoking what appears to be crack cocaine.
The one Rob Ford says doesn't exist. Or at least one of the many copies.
And now it's all going terribly wrong.
Now when Stephen Harper tries to pose as a champion of law and order, or Mr. Accountability, these smiling faces come back to haunt him...
Hi Boss !!! It's Mikey and Robbie !!!! Remember us??? Boss ??? Boss???
Now it's a NIGHTMARE !!!!
Golly. No wonder he didn't dare show his face in Parliament today.
Opposition MPs ridiculed Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s absence from the House of Commons question Period on Monday, labelling him a “peekaboo” leader who was hiding from accountability over a $90,172 cheque his former chief of staff gave to Senator Mike Duffy as a scandal over Sen. Duffy’s Senate expenses escalated.
No wonder even Pamela Wallin is trying to hide her face from the camera.
So now it even LOOKS like a sordid scandal eh? Now it's tabloid stuff !!!!
And the best part? All those little distractions, as Harper calls them, are threatening to bury the Con regime.
When it rains it pours or so it must feel to Stephen Harper’s Conservatives as the many accumulated clouds on their horizon finally give way to a perfect storm.
The last thing Harper needs as he tries to control the damage of a spending scandal in the Senate was another hit on the law-and-order image of the conservative movement.
And that was before this.
The former head of Canada's spy-agency watchdog, who received prestigious appointments from different levels of government and was nearly honoured with a street in his name, has been arrested abroad on fraud charges.
And BEFORE we found out that the Cons are not only screwing the unemployed, they're rewarding their friends. The ones who send them cash.
Up to a third of the people who landed cushy patronage jobs on the new Social Security Tribunal gave money to the Conservative party, public records show.
Gawd. Now can we call them the Corruption Cons? Or is the Harper mob good enough?
Because one thing's for sure eh?
This story is just getting better and better.
Boss Harper's going down in a blaze of corruption.
And his nightmare can only get worse...
