.....When the political leader who can most clearly and most forcefully sum up what's really at stake in this election, is Conservative Danny Williams?
"I can only say this, and I say it with all sincerity and genuine concern for our great country: a majority government for Stephen Harper would be one of the most negative political events in Canadian history."
"The only reason we haven't seen his full plan for Canada implemented is because he had a minority government to keep him in check....There is nothing Harper will not do in order to win a majority government. "
My hero Danny.
Meanwhile .... what were OUR party leaders up to?
Hmmm....let's see....I saw Stephane Dion trying to explain his Green Shift to a group of children who looked like their heads were going to explode. But who can blame the kiddies when their parents don't understand it either? How can a tax be GOOD for you? Duh?
Although there was one moment that REALLY impressed me. When Dion was asked about the attack ads and bullying. And he said he had been picked on all his life...but he was a big boy... and would never use attack ads against his enemies. Mark my words. He may never be Prime Minister...but one day he'll be canonized. Or should that be MARTYRED?
And then there was Jack Layton of the NEW NDP, framed against a backdrop of that other brilliant and successful organization...General Motors. I have no idea what he was trying to flog, because all he was talking about was why he had decided to allow Elizabeth May to participate in The Big Debate.
And why Harper was to blame for the annoying debate debate "distraction." Even though if he had agreed to let May participate, and Harper had boycotted the debate, Great Pig Leader would have looked like an idiot instead of Jack.
Finally in some small basement somewhere in Canada there was Elizabeth May, celebrating her Big Debate debate victory. She looked like a REAL winner. The five or six people in the room with her looked really pumped up too. First we take the debate ......then we take PARLIAMENT !!! Oh goody goody. Now I won't have to vote for the Marijuana Party.
Oh yeah I forgot. I saw Gilles Duceppe standing under an apple tree somewhere in Quebec. He looked so depressed and beat up I thought he was going to resign there and then. Instead of waiting for the day after the election. But then who cares?
As for Stephen Harper I don't know what he was up to, but I can only imagine. No doubt sobbing in some Con bunker somewhere, his corkscrew piggy tail hanging limply between his haunches. And who can blame him? If you were Great Pig Leader wouldn't you be SOOOOO depressed to have the centre-left coming at you in four pieces instead of just three?
Or do you think he's prancing around on his hind trotters? Shouting Oinky !!!! Oinky !!!! Oinky!!!
Oh boy. All I can say is thank goodness Newfoundland joined Canada so we have Danny Williams to tell it like it is. And issue the final warning.
From now on.
I'll be wearing my favourite t-shirt.
