OMG. What did I do to deserve this? So I can do it again, and again, and again.
Because this is just too good to be true eh?
As if that Con scandal in the House of Pork wasn't already one of the most amazing shows I've seen recently. Right up there with The Bates Motel. Or Rob Ford and the Scary Crack Dealers.
Now if you can believe it, here comes Mike Duffy demanding a full public inquiry !!!!
Senator Mike Duffy said Thursday he wants a "full and open inquiry" to answer the many questions Canadians have about the spending scandal that prompted him to leave the Conservative caucus and now has the RCMP asking the Senate for more details about spending rules.
He wants everyone to know he didn't do anything wrong when he helped himself to $90,000 he didn't deserve, and then got Nigel Wright to pay it back for him. So he could tell the auditors to take a hike.
And not only that.... he wants EVERYONE to know what Stephen Harper knew about the deal !!!!!
And that he shouldn't worry about his old pal Mikey, because he's not going ANYWHERE !!!
Duffy declined to questions from reporters about the different versions of the Senate report, his relationship with Wright, and about his lawyer. He flatly rejected a question about whether he plans to resign or stay in the Senate "Pfffft. Of course, I'm a senator, why wouldn't I?"
OMG. I can only imagine how the leader of the Con mob must be reacting to that announcement eh?
Down in sunny Colombia...
Because Duffy sticking around is bad enough, but SQUEALING is worse, and public anything could be FATAL.
Gawd. David Macfarlane is right. This is the stuff of fiction.
Imagine you are writing a political thriller that needs, as a plot device, a self-important mediocrity whose sense of entitlement is so overreaching he not only thinks he can get away with cheating, he believes he deserves to. Could you possibly do any better than what’s on the front pages these days?
Being totally delusional is clearly not what you want in a senator. Unless, of course, you’re Harper and you get to choose them. But it’s not a bad trait for a character to have in a work of fiction. If Mike Duffy were any more of a stereotype you’d have to give him a fez, a fly swatter and a café in Casablanca.
And since it's absolutely KILLING the Cons, I just want to say I think it's worth EVERY penny of that $90,000 Mikey borrowed first from us, and then from Nige.
I mean think about what we're getting eh?
A first class scandal. The fatal damaging of the Con brand. The abolition of the Turkey Senate or House of Pork. Maybe even the premature departure of Stephen Harper, and the total destruction of his foul and corrupt regime.
And all for the price of a Duffy Buck.
What a horrible scandal.
What a beautiful bargain....
P.S. Nige...Nige...I realize you had to leave the PMO in a hurry, but I hope you didn't forget my little request. I really REALLY need
Because I'm as greedy as a Bay Street broker eh?
And one fatal Con scandal just isn't ENOUGH...
P.S.S. The Brazman would like some dough too. Thanks XXX Simon
