Well there he was in Saskatchewan yesterday, looking as ghastly as I have ever seen him.
Announcing his plan to shrink the Senate by attrition.
Prime Minister Stephen Harper is vowing not to make any more Senate appointments, in an effort to distance himself from the scandal-plagued Red Chamber and to goad provinces into agreeing to reform or abolish the discredited legislative body.
But since I don't care what happens to the Senate, all I could think of was why is Stephen Harper looking so beaten?
When a new poll suggests that his sleazy plan to buy the election is working.
A new poll shows Prime Minister Stephen Harper and the Conservatives are by far the most popular choice for Canadian voters — just weeks before an expected election call and just as federal childcare cheques are being doled out.
The exclusive Mainstreet Research poll for Postmedia suggests Harper and the Tories received a sharp boost in popularity as a result of the enhanced universal childcare benefit.
It's a shocking result, and what makes it even more disturbing is that it's so different from this poll.
The federal New Democratic Party continues to hold the lead in public support, according to a new Forum Research poll conducted this week. The survey found the NDP ahead with 34 per cent support, while the Liberals and Conservatives were locked in a statistical tie at 29 per cent and 28 per cent respectively.
So I don't know what to think. Except to hope that the Forum poll, which is more in line with what other polls have recently shown, is right. And that the Mainstream Research poll is an outlier.
For I refuse to believe that so many Canadians could be bought so easily and so cheaply...
And are as corrupt as the sleazy hog who would buy their love, with OUR money.
But the good news is that even if the Mainstream poll is right, and all that dirty money has given the Cons a bounce, it won't last long.
Not when the Cons are dishing out the payola with one hand, and taking it away with the other...

And not when more Canadians realize that he is bribing them with money he doesn't have...
That there is no balanced budget and no surplus, just a growing deficit.
Finally realize that the oily policies of Harper and his incompetent Con regime are leading this country to economic disaster.
And that Great
Is it ethical to use firefighters as props in a political photo op, particularly at the same time as 460 hectares of forest are burning uncontained and a hill smoulders in the background?
And when those Canadians he would bribe realize that they've been conned like suckers. Or sold themselves and their country so cheaply.
And when the smell of that rancid porky mingles with the stench of corruption from the Senate he would slowly starve...
The flesh will start to fall off his bones and the bones of his corrupt government, and our polls will start to soar again.
Like my friends and I have been doing on the Pan Am games free zip line in our neighbourhood.....
For some of us can't be bought. We would rather reach towards the sky, not grovel at some grubby trough. We are more and better than them.
The winds of change are still blowing in our favour, and we are still going to defeat them.
Hang on tightly, but dare to believe that better times are coming.
And have a great weekend everybody...
