They were already the worst government Canada has ever known, a freakish horror show and a fascist circus.
But as the economy heads south, and their desperation grows, Stephen Harper's Con clowns are sinking to new levels of depravity and incompetence.
Because everywhere you look they are making fools out of themselves...
Yesterday I wrote about how James Moore and Greg Rickford had been claiming that the oil spill recovery operation in Vancouver's English Bay had been a "world class" success.
And that only six out of the 3,000 litres spilled remained to be recovered.
But now it turns out that doesn't count the toxic bunker fuel that might be under the water.
And if you thought that Con clown show was scary.
Then there was the useless Leona Aglukkaq, urging the provinces to do more to fight climate change.
Having missed a March 31 deadline to submit greenhouse gas emissions reduction targets to the United Nations, the Harper government is prodding the provinces to come up with better numbers.
Because goodness knows she's doing nothing.
But she WILL claim credit for something the Cons opposed:
One of the actions Canada has taken to reduce emissions is to close energy producers fuelled by coal, said Aglukkaq. But that's no thanks to the federal government, said Ontario Environment Minister Glen Murray.
"While Minister Aglukkaq in her letter points to (closing coal-fired power plants) as part of Canada's contribution to fighting climate change, the federal government did not support Ontario in this bold action, much as it is now critical of Ontario's commitment to putting a price on carbon to further fight greenhouse gas pollution," Murray said in an email from his office.
As only a Con artist could.
But of course the starring act in this latest Con clown circus was Stephen Harper himself.
Trying to make it sound like he was a major player at the Panama Summit where Obama reached out to Raul Castro...
When in fact his performance couldn't have been more minor or more awkward.
Several hours after their clumsy encounter at the photo session, Harper and Castro met as the summit was ending. Government officials called it a “pull-aside” — and unlike meetings Harper had earlier in the day with other leaders such as U.S. President Barack Obama, there were no media there to take photographs.
Or more hypocritical.
Carlo Dade, an international public policy expert who works at the Canada West Foundation, says Harper’s governing Conservatives long ago made it clear how they feel about the Castro regime. “These guys personally don’t like Cuba. They don’t like Communists. And so they’re still fighting the Cold War.”
Which of course isn't surprising coming from a man who wants to build himself a ghastly anti-communist monument in the heart of Ottawa...
In a deliberate assault on our justice system and our democracy.
Placing this memorial, which essentially demonizes (either rightly or wrongly) a particular socioeconomic system, next to the Supreme Court of Canada undermines the very foundation of that institution, which is its independence and impartiality, and, as a result, erodes our own democracy.
But would presume to lecture the world on human rights.

While turning Canada into a police state.
And the good news? The reason Stephen Harper's government is looking more and more like a Con clown show is because it's more and more desperate.
War fever and the terrorist scare are fading. Opposition to Bill C-51 is rising. Harper's polls are heading south along with the economy.
And of course the Duffy trial is shredding his credibility...
Or what's left of it.
Which, when you think about it, only seems fitting.
That one Con circus should bring down the other...

Yup. They are Con clowns.
Their disgusting act has gone on for too long.
They are going to get the hook.
And their Great Depraved Leader is going down...
