Candice Bergen and the Sad State of the Con Leadership Race
Yesterday I tried illustrate the effect Stephen Harper's foul legacy was having on the Con leadership race.
With the most mediocre candidates that party and this country has ever seen shuffling around or buzzing around, seeking to replace him.
And I wrote that I didn't think it could get any worse.
But sadly I was wrong.
Because now the Con hog Candice Bergen is threatening to enter the race.
Conservative MP Candice Bergen, known for her efforts in ending the long-gun registry, says she is now considering a Tory leadership bid. Ms. Bergen, who ran for the interim leader job that went to Rona Ambrose, said many of her rural Manitoba constituents are asking her to run and she has spent the summer thinking about it.
Claiming that the people want her, and her party needs her.
Ms. Bergen, her party’s natural resources critic, said she has never seen such “visceral dislike and disgust” in her Portage-Lisgar riding since Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s Liberals were elected last October.
Even though everybody knows that the real reason she wants to enter the race is her visceral dislike of Justin Trudeau
And her burning desire to destroy him...
Just like everybody knows that the last thing the Cons need is a social conservative from rural Manitoba.
Not when Brad Trost is already planning to throw his cap in the ring....
He's quite capable of taking his party back to the Middle Ages, or make it look like a conclave of religious fanatics.
And if Bergen does enter the race it will probably drive Michelle Rempel over the deep end...
With who knows what drunken consequences, or scandalous Twitter outbursts.
But then of course the Con are ALL desperate.
Justin Trudeau just keeps getting more and more popular...
In Canada and all over the world.
The latest Justin Trudeau moment delighting people around the world is not even one he is responsible for: Mr. Trudeau, the Canadian prime minister, is on the cover of a Marvel comic book.
While the Cons are going nowhere.
They're just not the party they used to be...
And with every passing day, one thing seems clearer.
When we defeated their depraved leader, we didn't just diminish him.
Honey we shrank the Cons...
