The Senate Scandal and the Madness of Stephen Harper
Golly. I can only imagine how Stephen Harper must be feeling these days as he watches what was left of his tarnished reputation crumbling under the weight of scandal.
Although I'd rather not eh? Because it must be a scary thing.
The violent rages, the howls of betrayal. The infernal din of all the voices in his head screaming "Destroy The ENEMY !!!!!". Or "HELP !!!!!"
Because by now even our mad king must realize the damage is TERMINAL.
Some of his strongest boosters in the MSM have accused him of blowing his credibility. Rex Murphy calls the scandal a "death warrant for Harper's brand." Some in his party are starting to think the unthinkable. A lot of them don't even believe him.
All over the country ordinary Canadians are saying it's time to give Steve the heave.
Instead of accepting responsibility for his ethical and leadership failures, Stephen Harper chooses to exploit the moment to advance the divisive “new Conservative” Reform Party agenda and policy directions.
Whatever you wish to call the Reform “Conservative” Party, it is time to give Steve the heave.
And so crazy desperate is Harper that in a final act of madness he has started accusing the opposition of being as corrupt as the Cons. Flinging his own excrement at them.
And sending out his revolting stooge Pierre Poislievre, the dick head who said that the root cause of terrorism was terrorism.
To do the dirty in the Commons...
Smearing the opposition again and again and again.
Because he is a dick head, he is his master's voice. And Great Ugly Leader made the Cons in his own image. Where some see nothing wrong about lying all the time. Some would even try to steal an election. Corruption 'R' Us, and his madness RULES.
So when Chantal Hébert sets out to imagine the unimaginable.That Harper didn't know what his right-hand man Nigel Wright was doing to settle his "Duffy Problem."
Because even a control freak can't know everything eh?
And he should admit he's only human.
She still ends up asking this disturbing question:
If this episode is not rooted in malevolence on his or his staff’s part, why does Harper not just admit that he, too, is not impervious to human error rather than resort to serial character assassination to fend off opposition queries?
One explanation could be that if he has to choose, the prime minister would rather have voters think he is an evil genius than a fool. The risk, of course, is that voters will conclude (a) that Harper is no genius and (b) that he is merely evil.
And all I can say is that when you have to ask a question like that something is terribly wrong in this country.
And the answers should have been obvious long ago.
Stephen Harper will never admit he is wrong, because as Preston Manning warned us long ago, he believes he owns the truth. Neither will he admit he is only only human, because as a clinical psychopath he cannot fully know what that means. He is not a fool. He's definitely not a genius. But he is desperate. And he is EVIL.
So the sooner we give Steve the heave, the cleaner and safer this country will be.
Yup. I like where this sordid senate scandal is going. It's so ugly and yet so beautiful.
Although I'm going to have to change all my RESIST signs eh?
Why wait two years to defeat him?
When I can demand better NOW...
