Stephen Harper's Great Escape Tour Ends Disastrously
Well, as you know, the idea was to get as far away as possible from the ghastly Senate scandals. And the media.
And to try to repair Stephen Harper's tarnished image with one sunny photo-op after the other...
But it all went terribly wrong. Old Duff followed him all the way. ..
So did Pamela Wallin.
And it all ended today with a horrible scuffle, and a foreign reporter getting mugged.
A Chinese reporter was hauled away by Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s RCMP security detail Friday after he grabbed a microphone and tried to ask Harper a question during a news conference at a mine in northern Quebec.
The Cons looking like the Sopranos or the Russians. Who would do ANYTHING to prevent journalists from asking questions.
And Stephen Harper's plans to sell us out to the Chinese...
Temporarily hitting an iceberg.
And lastly but not leastly, one more Con Communications Director jumping ship.
Just days after the news broke that PMO media wrangler Andrew MacDougall would be hanging up his lasso at the end of the month comes word that Government House Leader Peter Van Loan's long-serving communications director Fraser Malcolm will also be fleeing the precinct before the fall session gets underway.
Because even the dumbest Con operatives must realize by now that trying to improve the image of the Harper gang is MISSION IMPOSSIBLE. It just can't be done eh?
They might be able to muzzle reporters, but they can't stop the police from asking embarrassing questions.
So the Great Escape Tour that started out so full of promise...
Is ending tonight in total disarray. Under a cloud of controversy.
Or a paper bag...
And although it's been a real horror show, I just want to say how much I have enjoyed covering it for you. At least more than that poor Chinese reporter eh?
And invite you all to tune-in for my next on-the-road broadcast. Stephen Harper's hastily arranged Great Apology Tour of China.
Where he will attempt to explain to the Chinese leadership that what happened today was all a terrible MISTAKE.
He still needs them to buy his dirty oil.
And he will do ANYTHING to please them...
Yup. Stephen Harper's Con Klowns. Have you ever seen anything like them?
When will they stop embarrassing us?
When can we give them the HOOK?
