Stephen Harper's Truly Desperate Cabinet Meeting
Well they may have padlocked Parliament, but I see the new/nouveau Con cabinet still managed to hold a top-secret meeting.
Prime Minister Stephen Harper and his top Cabinet ministers hunkered down in their ultra-secure meeting room off the Prime Minister’s Centre Block office all day Tuesday, with the new session of Parliament still two weeks away and opposition parties furious over their inability to grill the government over the effect a U.S. shutdown of government services involving 800,000 U.S. public servants could have on Canada.
And I can only imagine how desperate it must have been eh?
What with the Cons still dodging questions about the Senate scandal, even as that scandal just keeps on getting BIGGER.
With one Senator, Carolyn Stewart-Olsen, Harper's long-time confidant, denying that she improperly claimed living expenses.
Another Con senator denying that he solicited illegal donations.
Patrick Brazeau denying reports that he was arrested.
Sen. Patrick Brazeau’s office is denying media reports that he was arrested at his Gatineau home but police and paramedics responded to his house twice early Tuesday morning, the Citizen has learned.
And the PMO disowning him:
A spokesman in the Prime Minister’s Office, Stephen Lecce, released this terse response when asked for comment late Tuesday: “Mr. Brazeau is no longer a member of our caucus. Anyone who commits a crime needs to face the full force of the law.”
Which considering the criminal record of the Con regime is rather ironic eh?
And is not going to make the Brazman too happy...
But then of course, the Cons are truly desperate. They've spent the last two months trying to buy votes with OUR money:
The government so far this week alone, on Monday and Tuesday, issued a dozen media statements announcing appearances by MPs, Cabinet ministers, and MPs acting on behalf of cabinet ministers to emphasize previous budget funding or to detail smaller programs that were receiving specific amounts of cash from wider programs—including cadet programs, senior citizen pilot projects and a $73,620 federal grant to the Clarke Foundation Theatre in Mission, B.C., announced by local Conservative MP Randy Kamp (Pitt Meadows-Maple Ridge-Mission, B.C.).
They've tried to soften Harper's image by portraying him in one photo-op after the other as the friend of kiddies, kittens, and....um....goats.
But it's just not working. And with two weeks to go before the grand re-launch I fear that the strain of it all is driving Great Ugly Leader over the deep end eh?
For what else could explain this tweet today?
Lordy. What parallel universe is he inhabiting?
Is he still in partial control of his faculties?
And what IS that helmet on his head?
Yup. I've got to admit I'm REALLY enjoying this show eh?
And I can only repeat what I've been saying recently.
We have them where we want them.
And we are going to FRY them...
