Stephen Harper and the Road to the Con Convention
Lordy, how ghastly. It looks as if Stephen Harper is going to have to carry Mike Duffy on his back all the way to Calvary...I mean Calgary.
Because although the Con convention starts on Thursday, Duffy's execution, along with that of the other two Senators, can't be arranged until at least Friday.
Procedural wrangling in the Senate means a vote on whether three senators should be barred and lose their pay, won't happen until at least Friday.
After the Liberals raised procedural and humanitarian objections, and the official executioner hacked off his own foot.
Conservative Senate Leader Claude Carignan bears some responsibility for the delay because he introduced motions to suspend his three colleagues last week, and then brought in another motion to limit debate time on his own motions.
Which of course, as you know, is NOT going to please the rabid Con base at the Cowboy Palace in Calgary.
Because they're VERY unhappy with Greater Alberta Leader, and they were hoping he would come bearing gifts...
So they could bite something, ANYTHING eh? Instead of just grinding their teeth, or gagging themselves.
And try to forget that horrible Senate scandal which is eating them ALIVE.
Because let's be clear, as Stephen Harper likes to say, the situation is grim. The Con regime has never been so unpopular, or their leader more despised.
And to make matters even worse, some are calling the porky Senate scandal Adscam Redux !!!!!
The Senate spending scandal is registering strongly with voters and shaping up to be a truly frightening shock to this government’s prospects in the lead-up to their Halloween convention. Coming on the heels of a series of political setbacks, it’s putting the government in its most precarious position since it assumed office some seven plus years ago.
Which must really KILL them eh?
Or make them REALLY angry....
And it's not as if Great Ugly Leader can cool those zombies down by throwing them a chunk of Pamela Wallin. Or boasting about his new trade deal with Europe.
Not when they want to eat ALL of her. And not when it's a monstrous SELLOUT.
European exporters will save about three times the amount of duty payments compared with their Canadian counterparts in a landmark free-trade agreement, The Canadian Press has learned. Sources say European Union exporters will save more than $670 million annually in duty payments compared with about $225 million annually for Canada's.
And not when we don't know what's in it, and it won't be ratified for another TWO years.
Gawd. What will the Con convention organizers do to placate their angry base? Or distract them from that sordid scandal.
I can only imagine...
OK...OK...I'm sorry. That's going too far. Who needs hookers when we've got Cons?
But cowboys, pancakes, and everywhere the smell of despair and defeat? At a convention that was supposed to reboot the tired old Con regime.
I wouldn't miss that for ANYTHING eh?
I can't wait to see the look on their faces. When the cowboy band strikes up Jesus Still Loves Us.
The rodeo clowns run out.
And Stephen Harper makes his grand entrance...
See you at the Cowboy Palace everybody !!!
The stench will be ghastly. So bring a gas mask.
But it should be quite a show...
