The Con Clown and the Death of Parliament
If you watch Question Period these days you know that there is a new star in the Con Circus.
The clown Paul Calandra, the Prime Minister's parliamentary secretary, who answers more questions about the Senate scandal than Stephen Harper does.
And turns every serious question into a joke or a smear.
Makes a mockery out of our parliament.
And is even worse, believe it or not, than his disgraced predecessor Dean Del Mastro.
Which is about as low as you can go eh?
This video will give you an idea of what this Con clown is doing to the democratic process...
And so will this selection of some of his most absurd quotes:
In response to an NDP question about Nigel Wright:
"I do like flowers and, of course, with lemons I like to make lemonade. My two daughters, this summer, actually had a lemonade stand where they sold lemonade for 5¢ on the street. They did very well. I am very proud of them."
In response to a Liberal question about the Wright-Duffy deal:
"She is sitting in a caucus where, I do not know, three-quarters of them have been convicted of some type of fraud, whether it is the Elections Canada Act or robocalls. The real fraud squad is sitting in the Liberal Party."
Which as you can see, makes the job of the opposition almost impossible. For what good is asking questions when you are going to get those kind of answers?
Which of course is exactly what Stephen Harper and his PMO thugs want. To try to wear down the opposition by turning Question Period into a farce, and deny the media any useable clips.
So the Cons can try to bury the scandal in the rubble of our democracy.
So I'm happy to report that there is a new website out there where you can get the Con clown to answer YOUR questions.
And have a little fun at his expense for a change.
Although of course it's not really funny, it's the death of Parliament.
And unless the Con Speaker forces Calandra to answer the questions he's asked, one really has to wonder why the opposition even bothers to turn up.
And whether they should stay away in protest until he is removed.
For one thing is for sure eh? He must be removed.
Stephen Harper should be ashamed of himself for debasing our democracy further.
And the Con clown must be FIRED...
