Oh no. Poor Stephen Harper. He just can't get a break from that horrible senate scandal.
As if having the hand of Pamela Wallin coming at him in his dreams, making it look like a sex scandal, wasn't bad enough eh?
Today he had to admit that when he personally examined Pammy's expenses and declared them "satisfactory."
He might have spoken too soon.
There are “unresolved” issues regarding Sen. Pamela Wallin‘s travel expenses, the prime minister said Wednesday as his government moved to signal that it wants all parliamentarians to be more transparent about their spending.
And that when he praised Mike Duffy for showing "leadership" during the early days of the senate scandal i.e. before they caught Nigel. He was really praising his OWN leadership:
In the House of Commons, Harper confirmed that he told Duffy to repay the money during a one-on-one talk after a mid-February caucus meeting where Duffy asked for “clarification” on a speech the prime minister had just given warning Conservative MPs and senators to repay inappropriate expenses.
But at least he wants Canadians to know that his right-hand man Nigel Wright didn't cut a cheque for Pammy like he did for Old Duff. And that he's all for TRANSPARENCY.
Only to have one of his own MPs resign from the Con caucus hours later, claiming the government isn't transparent enough !!!!
Alberta MP Brent Rathgeber abruptly quit the Conservative caucus late Wednesday, citing the government’s "lack of commitment to transparency" in the wake of a dramatic Tory rewrite of his bill to expose the salaries of federal civil servants.
Can you believe it eh? Even the sheep are revolting.
And if you thought that's an amazing phenomenom of nature. How about the case of the dog that isn't barking?
The strange sight of the unusually silent Jason Kenney...
Because I noticed this a few days ago. That even as the opposition pounded the Cons on the Senate scandal, and John Baird, James Moore, and even Pierre Poilievre filled in for Harper, Kenney just sat there playing with his blackberry.
And today came this story.
When times get tough for Stephen Harper, he usually turns to his three loyal horsemen. But with the temperature turned up in Ottawa over the past two weeks, one of the horsemen has not saddled up.
Kenney, on the short list of anyone’s potential leadership aspirants, has so far escaped with none of the Duffy-Wright gum stuck to his shoe.
And what all of the above tells me is that the damage caused by this scandal is even more devastating than we can imagine. The Cons are clearly trying to protect Kenney in case Stephen Harper suddenly decides to resign. The old divisions are surfacing again.
The Reformers and theocons in the PMO are making plans for Jason.
And of course, as you know, so am I...
Because the day Kenney becomes leader of the Conservative Party will be the day it DIES.
Golly. It's a miracle eh?
We set out to defeat them. But in the end they might destroy themselves before the next election.
Let them blow the horn of
Let the walls of the Con regime come tumbling down.
Let the freak show continue....
