Kevin O'Leary and the Con Clowns
I've been trying to ignore the so-called Con Woodstock at the Manning Centre this weekend.
Because life is too short.
And there are no signs of (intelligent) life there...
But maybe the deathly gloom is contagious, for I have to admit I've been feeling a little down myself.
So I'm glad to see that I can always count on the Con clown Kevin O'Leary to cheer me up.
For there he was on Friday vowing to tear the Liberal budget to pieces.
Businessman Kevin O'Leary says he's prepared to attack the Liberal government's economic plan in their upcoming budget, whether or not he decides to run for the Conservative Party leadership.
"My job, really, is going to be to push forward what's wrong with these policies," O'Leary told CTV News Channel on Friday. "I plan to tear that budget to pieces when it comes on (March) 22, and make sure that every Canadian knows where the risk is inherent."
Sounding a lot like he's running for the leadership of the Harper Party, or the Trump Party.
Only to suggest yesterday that he might also run for the leadership of the Liberal party
In a television interview with Reshmi Nair on CBC News, O'Leary, who earlier talked about running for the federal Conservative Party leadership, said he does not rule out running for the Liberals.
"I don't think the old political brands will matter in the next election," O'Leary said, adding he is a member of the "Canadian tax payer party" and will speak on behalf of all Canadians.
After Justin Trudeau is forced to resign long before the end of his mandate.
Which of course couldn't be more hilarious, since Trudeau's popularity has never been greater.
Like Stephen Harper, O'Leary is no Great Economist Leader.
And although Rona Ambrose has welcomed him with open arms.
And although his appearance at the Manning conclave was greeted with wild applause.
I can only imagine what his reception will be like the next time he turns up at a Con event...
But then of course they are zombies, they are desperate.
And with a leadership line-up like this one.
And would be candidates like Peter MacKay claiming the Cons can beat Trudeau if they're smart.
And by so doing ruling himself out.
Who can blame the Cons for feeling that way?
And who can blame me for suddenly feeling a lot more cheerful.
Because by the time one of those losers grabs the wheel...
They'll be over the cliff.
For they really are Con clowns.
And as I keep saying.
Long before we destroy them, they will destroy themselves...
