Lordy. I see that Stephen Harper didn't have a very good Good Friday.
His Easter Message was no doubt well received by his dwindling flock, the 28% of Canadians who still support him.
Because they all agree that Jimbo Flaherty would want the Cons to keep his legacy alive.
Canada’s budget watchdog says the federal public service has already lost more jobs than expected and projects thousands more cuts.
By killing government in his memory.
And would want everybody to vote for Lord Harp because he was Jimbo's "special" friend.
Almost to the very end....
But after that it was all DOWNHILL.
First came the lightning bolt from heaven. Or the body blow from Obama.
The Obama administration has once again punted the politically charged decision on the Keystone XL pipeline in a move that will likely delay a final ruling past November’s congressional elections.
Which although the Con Ministry of Propaganda and Disinformation proclaimed it a mere "disappointment."
You can be sure it put a BIG dent in Harper's Easter spirit...
Because if as Tom Flanagan says, even small things can make him fly off the handle:
“He can be suspicious, secretive, and vindictive, prone to sudden eruptions of white-hot rage over meaningless trivia..."
I can only imagine how he reacted to THAT humiliating slap in the face.
But if that wasn't bad enough, then came the FURRY FIASCO.
Starring his very own CAT WOMAN !!!
Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s wife Laureen dismissed an activist’s concerns about missing and murdered aboriginal women, telling the student “that’s a great cause, perhaps another night.”
Which must have also been a devastating blow. Because the Con Death Machine had been counting heavily on Laureen to soften Great Leader's image, and make him look more HUMAN.
And so much for that eh?
“We’re raising money for animals tonight. If you’d like to donate to animals, we’d love to take your money,” she said to lots of clapping, before suggesting dealing with the issue a different night: “tonight we’re here for homeless cats.”
Which means that if he wants to put lipstick on his pig of a government he's going to have to do it HIMSELF....
And at this stage in his corrupt, tired, and totally insane reign of terror that probably won't work either.
But wait what's this? I see Lord Harp has another desperate plan to try to improve his ghastly image. By holding a big birthday party, three years before the actual anniversary, to celebrate some of the country's "historic milestones."
And no doubt HIMSELF.
As Canada’s 150th birthday approaches, Canadians are invited to join Prime Minister Stephen Harper in celebrating one of the key historic milestones that has defined our country: the election of Stephen Harper’s government.
Parliament Hill will serve as a gathering place for a month-long festival of fun and re-education as we turn back the clock to 2006—a dark and brutish time when Canadians possessed only a rudimentary knowledge of personal hygiene and communicated using a primitive system of grunts and clicks. From the mists of this primitive prehistory has emerged, under Stephen Harper’s leadership, a country capable of being considered for a seat on the UN Security Council—and finishing second to Portugal.
But sadly for him that probably won't work either. Not with his record. Not when the taxpayers are footing the bill for that Con propaganda show.
Not when the Con regime will just have finished ramming their foul Unfair Elections Act through Parliament.
And much of the country will be in a state of REVOLT...
Not when the robocall trial will have begun, and Canadians will be holding their breaths and wondering which Con suspect or member of the PMO will testify next.
And not if after trying to shake off the Senate scandal.
Scant years ago, the Senate was regarded as a bastion of patronage. Today, it is regarded as a bastion of patronage and scandal, which means the extent to which it is regarded as a bastion of patronage has declined by 50 per cent. “Mission accomplished,” the Prime Minister said.
Ol' Duff crashes the Big Party.
The police investigation into suspended Senator Mike Duffy is complete and charges are likely to be laid very soon – possibly within a month, Global News has learned.
And demands to know what Harper has to say about that sordid scandal in his own office. In a courtroom and under OATH.
Golly. I can hardly wait for THAT show to begin.
I sure hope Lord Harper has a better Easter Sunday than he had a good Good Friday.
And that he spends it on his knees, begging for forgiveness, or praying for deliverance.
Because it's going to be a HELL of a summer...
