The Day The Cons Went Wild
They have turned our Parliament into a circus, and our democracy into a farce.
They strangle debate, they never answer any questions
Just repeat one Big Lie after the other.
They mock their opponents, like a gang of bullies drunk with power.
But this is the absolute limit.
A verbal dust-up in the House of Commons almost wound up in a bench-clearing brawl. Peter Van Loan, the government's House leader, appeared to set off the incident when he stormed across the floor of the Commons to confront his NDP counterpart, Nathan Cullen.
Microphones were shut off but video tape shows Van Loan waving his finger at Cullen and speaking in a heated manner.
And of course, it would have to be the man the Cons call Tubby. For wherever that crass Con hack goes farce is sure to follow.
The Prime Minister wasn’t present for Question Period this afternoon. He had a photo op to attend to. As a result, it was Peter Van Loan’s responsibility to stand and lead the Conservative response this day. History will make notice of this only because it was under Mr. Van Loan’s leadership today that the Harper government fully embraced a satirical approach to political discourse.
You know, as I've mentioned before, I used to enjoy watching Peter Van Loan perform in Parliament. Because he was always spilling his glass of water on Stephen Harper.
And when I saw him hunched over Harper, mumbling apologies, sweating profusely, dabbing Great Ugly Leader's crotch with a paper towel, I couldn't help but feel that he had found his true station in life.
But of course, that was before he charged at the opposition, roaring like a boar, and waving a chubby finger.
Now I just want to know why the useless Con Speaker just stood there doing nothing, instead of calling security and expelling Van Loan from the Commons. Like you throw a rowdy drunk out of a bar.
For turning the House of the Canadian People into a Con bordello, where decent democracy doesn't stand a chance.
Or El Harpo's Mexican Wrestling League...
Because that's where El Tubby belongs eh?
Along with all the other Con bullies and crass rednecks who have our democracy in a choke hold. And are slowly strangling the life out of it. While giving all of us a chubby finger.
Oh boy. When will we regain our self respect? When will we stop pretending that we still have a Parliament? When will we unite to drive those thugs out of the House of the Canadian People?
When will we finally get our act together?
And end this democratic nightmare...
