Stephen Harper and the Porky Election Call
It seems only fitting that Stephen Harper should kick off his last election campaign, in the same way he has governed this country.
By seeking to extract maximum political advantage from the withered carcass of our democracy.
By making it only too clear that the H in Harper stands for hypocrisy. Or hog.
And of course by lying like a thief.
Responding to questions from reporters, Mr. Harper defended his decision to call for a campaign of such audacious length, which advantages the better-financed Conservatives, on the grounds that the election campaign was already effectively under way, and all parties should be bound by the same rules.
“If we’re going to run our campaigns...those campaigns need to be conducted under the rules of the law, that the money come from the parties themselves, not from government resources.”
When in fact nobody has spent more government resources promoting themselves than the Cons. Culminating or climaxing three days ago with this outrageous pork-a-palooza.
Nobody has less respect for our laws than the grubby porker king Stephen Harper.
It is as the Star editorialists write, yet another reason to get rid of him and his sleazy government.
This shameless move is yet more evidence – if any was needed – that the Harper Conservatives are long past their sell-by date.
Canadians now have 11 long weeks to listen to the party leaders and make up their minds on who best deserves their support. But one thing is already clear: it’s time for a change in Ottawa, and high time to send the Conservatives packing.
And it also is, as Don Martin points out, just more proof that the Cons are desperate.
The economy is sagging, the loonie sinking, the Senate scandal reviving and Nanos polling shows growing support for regime change after 10 polarizing years of Prime Minister Stephen Harper.
Confronted by that hostile messaging mess, the short-panted minions in Conservative party headquarters have devised a uniquely bizarre campaign strategy.
The Canadian voter, they’ve decided, needs more Stephen Harper.
Because if anyone thinks that most Canadians want more Harper, or that Great Ugly Leader is not desperate or crazy.
They should check out this photo of him taken shortly after dropping the writ...
And then ask themselves, does that look like a man confidently heading for victory?
Or a man who thinks he can buy himself more time?
Or a man on the verge of a mental breakdown who knows that his time is almost over?
And has a sinking feeling he's about to be humiliated...
And of course after ten years of filling the internet with images like that one, to ensure that his foul legacy survives him, you know how I feel eh?
He is the depraved and cowardly leader of the worst government in Canadian history. He is now making a last desperate attempt to buy and steal another election. Even if that means wallowing in his own excrement.
But it will not work. His time is indeed over. We are indeed going to break him, and humiliate him beyond recognition.
And in only 75 days we are going to bury him and his Cons FOREVER...
