Holy Voodoo Batman. I see Great Ugly Leader is getting ready to go after Justin Trudeau.
Hoping to pin his doll on the Trophy Board of Dead Liberal Leaders he keeps in his bedroom.
And so determined is the monster to add Justin to his collection, he has already announced plans to destroy him with his mighty Attack Machine !!!
The Harper Conservatives have not bothered to wait for the apparent formality of Justin Trudeau’s election as the next leader of the Liberal Party – an attack ad campaign is in the can already, claiming that Mr. Trudeau is “not ready” to govern.
Sources say the Tory campaign will start almost immediately after the Liberal leadership results are announced on April 14, in an effort to define the new leader in the eyes of voters.
Which is a new record.
For the ghastly gang who brought us these grotesque attack ads...
So why am I laughing not trembling? Answer: because I don't think they will work this time.
Firstly, because we've seen them all before, and the Porky Action Plan ads have made any ads the Cons air look like propaganda or bullshit. So their impact will be blunted, or backfire on them. Especially since the many seniors who support Justin don't like that kind of stuff.
Secondly, younger Canadians won't like the "not ready to govern" tag line because it sounds a lot like he's saying they're unfit to be in government. Or that it isn't time for a change.
Which coming from a burned out, morally corrupt, scandal ridden government like the Harper Cons probably won't work either....
And thirdly the Con attacks probably won't work, because Justin Trudeau has, at this point at least, the Teflon coating that Harper once had. Being a complex mixture of hope and nostalgia it will be hard to dent.
And as the Teflon peels off Harper, and the bandages fall off his mummified government, the Cons are the ones who should fear OUR attack ads.
For where will we start eh? With the way they are corrupting our democracy, and making a mockery out of our Parliament? With the way they lie all the time? Or the way they are raping our environment, and selling us out to foreign interests? With Duffy or Wallin or Brazeau? Or the way they are going after pensions, union rights, the poor, and the unemployed?
Or this being Thursday in Harperland, how about the horrifying story of a muzzled scientist?
For there are so many horror stories. Never has a government given us so much ammunition to use against them. And we will use it all to hit them where it HURTS.
I mean, if we can't make the Con regime look like the Mummy Army, or the Creatures of the Black Oily Lagoon, there must be something wrong with us eh?
Oh sure, I realize that many progressives, including Justin, say they don't want to go negative. But like Warren Kinsella I believe that's a mistake.
It’s not “negative” to tell the truth about your opponent, as he or she is seeking high public office. Telling the truth about their public record — their votes, their quotes, their expenditures and missteps — isn’t “negative.” In a democracy, it’s the right and proper thing to do.
A mistake that will be corrected as the stakes become higher, and the Cons more ugly and desperate.
And in the meantime, I'm glad to see that some in The Great Canadian Resistance are already firing away...
Shit Harper Did. Isn't that a great name?
For goodness knows the Harper Cons have pooped a pile as high as Mount Everest.
So if the Con Attack Machine wants a war I say we give them one. Flood the internet with our ads, and bury them in their own garbage.
As for me, I'll try to play my humble part. Despite my limited equipment and even more depressing lack of talent #@!!!
But one thing is for sure eh? Never will I have more material.
Never will I have a better target.
And in the service of my beautiful Canada, the one I want back.
Never will I have so much FUN...
