Tony Clement and the Con Clown Meeting in Muskoka
As announced, today is the day Tony Clement, the King of Muskoka aka Gaz Boy or Gas Bag, will make what he calls an "important announcement."
When he will solemnly declare that he too wants to be the new leader of the Harper Party.
And while the poor scribblers in the MSM draw straws to see who gets the deathly assignment of covering that Con clown's "important announcement."
And who will be forced to stifle their yawns, and try not to die laughing.
I'm happy to report that Clement's doomed leadership bid just got even more hilarious.
Yes, believe it or not. Kevin O'Leary, our would be Donald Trump, wants to be his financial advisor or "financial czar."
Kevin O’Leary is meeting with would-be Conservative Party leadership candidate Tony Clement this week to talk about the possibility of joining his team as its financial czar.
“He’s coming up here on Friday, we’re going to get together, play some guitar together up at my cottage,” Mr. O’Leary told the Globe and Mail on Monday on the phone from Muskoka.
“I can’t imagine a better way to talk about politics than looking across the lake … This is the Canadian way to do politics. You always do it on the dock.”
But before you think this means anything, or try to imagine what that meeting might look like...
Don't worry it doesn't mean a thing. It's just the coming together of two desperate men.
Clement is desperate for any kind of publicity.
And O'Leary is desperate to undo the damage caused by this story.
According to the Instagram account of a man who says he's considering running for the leadership of the Conservative Party of Canada – and even appears to be leading in some polls – it looks like O'Leary spent Canada Day weekend down in Nantucket, Massachusetts celebrating a "magical" 4th of July weekend:
But as a number of astute Instagram users point out, O'Leary's patriotic declarations about the 4th of July stand in stark contrast with a notable gap in his Instagram feed: zero mention of Canada Day!
Which should he decide to throw his own clown hat into the small shabby ring of the Con leadership race.
Could make our would be Trump look more American than Canadian...
And remind us all where he has lived for the past TWENTY years.
"I spend most of my time in Boston," O'Leary told the Boston Business Journal in 2014. "Boston is my home."
And the good news?
None of those Con clowns are going to get anywhere near power.
Not as long as Justin Trudeau still wants to be Prime Minister.
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s Liberals continue to command the support of half of Canadians, according to a new poll that projects the party would win 80 per cent of the seats if an election were held today.
Long after a governing party’s honeymoon with voters would have traditionally ended, the Forum Research survey of 1,429 people instead found the Grits are buoyant with 52 per cent of respondents, saying they would vote Liberal compared to 28 per cent for the Conservatives and 11 per cent for the NDP.
For while Trudeau just keeps getting more and more popular. The Cons are heading in the wrong direction.
They're still the same old Harper Party.
They're still going nowhere.
And neither are the Con clowns Clement and O'Leary...
