Simon's Summer and the Great Con War on the Senate
Well I have to admit that I too am now deep into the Canadian summer, and don't feel like writing about politics, or doing anything too strenuous. I just want to have fun with my buddy Sébastien.
As humble as that might be.
Yikes. How low have I fallen?
But I just HAD to share this great joke with you.
It seems that Stephen Harper and his fellow oil pimp Brad Wall are about to declare war on the Con Senate !!!
Prime Minister Stephen Harper and Saskatchewan Premier Brad Wall are expected to appear together Friday to call for the abolition of the Senate, according to a source familiar with their plans.
The Senate has been a constant thorn in the side of the Prime Minister, who has gone from railing against its lack of accountability and pushing for reform as a member of the opposition, to being tarnished by its excesses as a series of a scandals consumed Conservative members of the Upper Chamber in recent years.
Isn't that hilarious? When I first heard the news I didn't know whether to giggle or gobble.
But since it comes from John Ivison, so you KNOW it comes from the PMO, I think I better try to explain why I think Harper is capable of doing it:
(1) He's DESPERATE...
David Parkins/Globe and Mail
It's all going horribly wrong. The surplus has fallen out of the pie and is lying on the floor next to the loonie. So he's not a great chef, or a Great Economist Leader.
(2) He can't scare Canadians with the Great Terrorist Menace. No matter how hard he tries.
Foreign Affairs bureaucrats were told this spring to produce three terrorism-related statements for minister Rob Nicholson to make to the media each week, ahead of a fall election in which security and Canada's response to terrorism are expected to be key issues.
(3) His frantic prayer sessions with Jason Kenney have so far failed to yield any results...
(4) His position on the Senate has always been confused. Once he vowed to reform it. Then he promised never to appoint any Senators.
Only to appoint FIFTY-NINE lousy ones.
And you know how that turned out...
(5) With this latest senate scandal growing steadily worse.
A former Conservative senator faces a second ethics probe after an investigation into his office unearthed allegations of harassment and bullying, The Canadian Press has learned.
And threatening to make even more Canadians question his abominable judgement AND his phony reputation as the great defender of women and children.
Meredith is already under investigation by the Senate’s ethics officer after published allegations last month that he had a sexual relationship with a 16-year-old girl.
And with the trial of Mike Duffy scheduled to resume in just over two weeks, he clearly wants to send out this message:
Hey don't blame me, I want to ABOLISH the Con Senate !!!!!
Or I know NOTHING !!!
And of course it won't work. Canadians will see through this scam, as they have seen through all the others.
I don't know whether he's trying to make Tom Mulcair look good, or Justin Trudeau look bad eh?
But it will only make him look like a man now so desperate he's capable of saying or doing ANYTHING.
He will not escape his monstrous creation so easily...
And along with all his other crimes it will help bring him down.
And hopefully send him to jail.
OK. Now back to what I was doing....
Is it the weekend yet?
Bye Bye Harper...
