In the ghastly Orwellian circus that the Cons have turned our Parliament into, it was a wonderful moment.
There was James Moore, filling in for Stephen Harper, doing what he has been doing since Great Ugly Leader left for Europe in a hurry.
Answering every question by smearing the opposition.
Accusing Justin Trudeau of stealing money from charities.
Heritage Minister James Moore said Trudeau should have never accepted any money from any charities -- before or after becoming an elected official.
"What is it about the ethical standard of giving money to charities rather than taking money from charities that he doesn’t understand?" he asked.
Even though the only charity that complained had a Con connection.
Grace Foundation board member Judith Baxter, whose husband, Glen, is on the executive of Moore's riding association.
And the whole thing stinks of a frame-up. Or a political favour returned.
What the release doesn't mention, however, is that Baxter is on the Museum's board of trustees, to which she was appointed in 2007 by then Canadian Heritage Minister Josee Verner, and renewed by the current minister, James Moore, in 2011 - a part-time gig for which she nevertheless collects $4,000-$4,700 per year, plus a per diem rate from $310-375 plus travel and living expenses set by the minister.
But that didn't stop Moore from making it sound like Trudeau is a criminal.
Or going after the NDP as he did last week. Again and again. Ad nauseam.
As the other Cons cheered and whooped it up like rednecks at a rodeo.
Except for that wonderful moment I mentioned earlier, when Tom Mulcair asked Big Jim about his former employee Saulie Zajdel.
A little over a year ago, Saulie Zajdel joined Stephen Harper for a happy-hour pub stop in Montreal as the Conservatives' best hope to win their first seat in the city in a quarter-century. Today, Zajdel is under arrest.
And the Cons were suddenly silent, and Big Jim suddenly looked like this...
Like a mobster at an inquiry about to plead the fifth.
And who can blame him?
He knows this one is really going to hurt him and Stephen Harper. Because he gave Zadjel a job.
And Steve and Saulie were super tight...
Harper wanted to win Mount Royal riding more than any other riding in Canada, because it once belonged to Pierre Trudeau. And any story that shines a light on that relationship, and the strange things that happened there, will only make Harper look even more sleazy and sinister.
At a time when the last thing he needs is another scandal.
Not when he has so many...
Not when they just keep on coming.
Montreal RCMP officers are investigating a former Conservative Senate staffer who was a onetime political candidate, after a three-year corruption probe into a Parliament Hill renovation project.
And not when for more and more Canadians, the word corruption is starting to sound like another word for Conservative.
Lordy. You know when I started writing about politics, I was just hoping it would help some of my
But now it's a whole lot easier eh?
Now I just tell them the Cons are a bunch of sleazy crooks and LOSERS. Their leader is a political pervert.
And if they hang with that grubby gang.
They'll end up in the same place he will...
Gosh. I don't know how a horror story turned into a sordid crime story eh?
But I LOVE it. It's so much easier to explain.
The Cons will be defeated because they must be arrested.
And justice will be done...
