Uh oh. I see that Jack Layton has had a
Not that there's anything wrong with that eh?
As long as you remember that he is a werewolf, that he can't help himself, that he lies all the time. And that no matter how much you scratch his hairy back, if he smells a majority before the budget comes down, he'll go for it like a rabid...um...werewolf.
But I have to admit this bothers me.
Because it seems to me that Jack has forgotten that we're living in a time of ideological WAR. Stephen Harper's overriding objective is to destroy government, by starving it with tax cuts, and wasting billions on jet planes and prisons.
So he can use a large deficit to slash social services, kill all kinds of Canadian institutions, strangle medicare, and turn this country into a JUNGLE.
And Jack just gave the beast a bone.
By allowing Harper to go ahead with is his corporate tax cuts, Layton gives this incredibly destructive prime minister the one thing he really wants and allows Harper to maintain undiminished his ideological assault on the country and its political culture.
The most important thing Layton could have done was set Harper back on his heels in his blitzkrieg against the activist role of government. Instead he has acquiesced to it and reinforced it – a huge gift to Harper.
And in the process probably boned himself:
Layton, by far the most trusted politician on the federal scene, will now be seen by many as going hat in hand to a man who not only condones lying but effectively endorses it. He looks desperate.
And left Stephen Harper happily howling at the moon:
No one who pays even scant attention to federal politics will believe for a minute that Harper was “respectful” of Jack Layton. This man is a sociopath and is contemptuous of almost every other human on the planet. He was laughing because he knew he held the winning hand.
Because he's a werewolf eh? And he can't help himself.
Oh boy. I like Jack Layton. And I realize that we're all living in desperate times.
But those who don't recognize that we're fighting an ideological war for the future of Canada are condemned to lose it.
So all I can suggest is that the next time Jack visits Great Werewolf Leader he might get a better deal if he avoids meeting him when there's a full moon. As he did yesterday.
And uses Bev Oda's
To bring him a monster-sized serving of beef chow mein...
AHHHHHHHHH HOOOOOOOOOOO !!!!
The werewolf is sniffing the air.
The left is lost in the woods.
And the full moon is rising...
