If you watched our little icebreaker trying to clear a channel to the Toronto Islands today, you might wonder if it's heading in the right direction.
Or whether it might also need to be rescued eh?
But if you want to know in what direction Stephen Harper is heading, all you have to do is take in his latest Christmas message.
For not only is it very short. The PMO no doubt having figured out that the less Harper the better.
Not only is it shameless:
As we count our many blessings, let us also give a moment to our brave men and women in uniform. I’d ask you to offer a thought and a prayer for them and their families.
Considering the desperate situation.
As many as 5,900 new veterans released from the Canadian Armed Forces in the next few years will suffer from a mental health disorder and at least 2,750 will suffer a severe form of post-traumatic stress disorder, according to a new report from the Library of Parliament. That threatens to overwhelm a health system that is already having trouble meeting demand
And the way he has betrayed our veterans. And all the good a "thought and a prayer" are going to do them.
But it's the picture that REALLY tells the story.
For this is what Stephen Harper looked like delivering his 2012 Christmas message.
A man in total control of his cowed party, and our ravaged country.
And this is what he looked like delivering this year's message...
Like a man whose confidence has been rattled. A man who can see the writing on the wall.
A desperate man with fear in his eyes...
And all I can say is what a difference a year makes eh?
Another upbeat message like that one, and some of the Cons in his caucus are going to start heading for the lifeboats, or swimming for their lives.
So I wouldn't be surprised if he is forced to take desperate measures eh?
And put on his rubber mask of confidence...
Before he loses his grip on his party, and the country.
As well as his grip on REALITY.
Jason Kenney moves in for the kill...
And the Con Armageddon begins.
Which is why despite the prevailing gloom I'm feeling pretty confident eh?
And as I headed for the ferry tonight, wearing my life jacket, just in case it hits an iceberg. Again.
I noticed that Jack was looking pretty confident too.
With his spiffy new orange scarf...
Which I take to be an excellent omen.
Great Ugly Leader has struck his iceberg. The Con regime is slowly sinking.
And we're definitely heading in the right direction...
