The Con Klowns Strike Again (PG rated)
Gawd. Living in Harperland isn't easy eh?
Sometimes you weep, and sometimes you laugh.
And sometimes on a day like this one you can do both. Weep for the bullied children of Canada who the Cons are refusing to help.
Conservative MP Candice Bergen, the parliamentary secretary to the minister of public safety, said everyone can relate to the issue, whether through personal experience or having seen bullying happen.
But she hinted that the government won't back a national approach. "Our belief, Mr. Speaker, is that this problem is best dealt with at the most local level, by people who are in the core, who are closest to it. Our schools, our communities, our health, education and law enforcement professionals," she said.
Even though most civilized countries have national anti-bullying strategies, and the only reason the Cons won't go there is because, as I pointed out the other night, they don't want to upset their rabid base.
Laugh at Rona Ambrose and her on and off "award."
Wonder why she would get any award after joining all those Con men to support Stephen Woodworth's abortion bill.
Suggest something more suitable...
And then wonder why the Cons always claim they're on the side of the children, or pose as crime fighters.
When their idea of fighting crime is to throw more young people in jail, and they don't consider bullying a crime worth fighting.
Or why Stephen Harper would warn the bullies of the world not to come here.
When he's one himself.
Then congratulate Rick Mercer for coming up with this one.
And thank goodness for small mercies eh?
Around the base is a Conservative Party of Canada sticker that reads "For Display Purposes Only," lest anyone (God forbid) decide to actually take the toy for a test drive.
Yup. As I said, sometimes you weep, sometimes you laugh.
But all we can do is dream of the day we will defeat them.
Send the woody back to Alberta.
And end this horrible nightmare...
