Stephen Harper and the Crumbling Con Castle
I started writing this post in the ruins of an old Scottish castle not far from my family home.
And as usual I couldn't help but think of those who thought these massive walls would stand forever. Only to see them brought down by time, war, or the madness of some king.
Just like our mad king Stephen Harper is bringing down the walls of his foul Con regime.
For let there be no doubt this is madness.
Members of the public who attend Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s campaign events are being required to agree to a gag order before they can walk through the door, iPolitics has learned.
The act of a deranged leader who is now so paranoid he can't even trust his own supporters. And would treat members of the media as potential terrorists.
On Tuesday, veteran Queens Park reporter Susanna Kelley was refused entry to a Harper campaign event. While she arrived 20 minutes before the start of the event, she was told she could not enter because RCMP sniffer dogs were not available to check her out.
It's a truly disturbing situation, and Harper's bizarre behaviour must surely raise questions about his mental state. and whether he is still mentally fit to remain in office.
But the good news is that crazy desperate leaders make mistakes and this one could be fatal.
Conservative Leader Stephen Harper is denying he told his former chief of staff Nigel Wright he was “good to go” with a $90,000 payment to embattled senator Mike Duffy.
“The words you are quoting are not my words. They are somebody else’s. I have said repeatedly, and I think the facts are clear, I did not know about — that Mr. Wright had made a payment to Mr. Duffy.
Because Wright was already annoyed by the way Harper changed his story to claim he had fired him after first saying that Wright had resigned.
And making him sound like a liar and/or a maniac is sure to annoy him even more...
So who knows what he might say when he testifies later this week.
Which can only put even more pressure on Harper. Or as Michael Harris writes make him look more like a cowardly lion.
Now, as revealed this weekend, if you want to see Harper The Great and Powerful in person, you have to agree in advance to shut up and never speak a word of what you saw or you won’t get through the door.
I’m not sure what democracy is anymore in Canada, but I’m pretty certain its got nothing to do with agreeing to get frisked and letting people and dogs mess with your junk before you attend a political event. Do they even do that in Myanmar?
You know, there are strange stories floating around Ottawa these days. Some claim that King Harper is now so crazy and abusive many of his staff dare not go near him.
And that's the real reason they want to limit his exposure to the public.
Others say that he had to be sedated for the leader's debate.
But one thing is for sure, rattle his cage as much as you can, and like so many tyrants before him.
His sanity could crumble, and the Con castle could come tumbling down...
