Why Rona Ambrose Will Lead the Cons to Disaster
Well I knew the Cons were desperate, and that it was not going to be easy to find or lasso an interim leader to replace Boss or Bull Harper.
Because most of the ones that needed to be fed rather than watered, had jumped over the fence before the election, or went down with the cattle call.
But who knew those Reform rednecks were so desperate that they would choose the Con clown Rona Ambrose?
Rona Ambrose has been chosen as the Conservative Party's interim leader and says her team is prepared to work hard to return to power. "I'm extremely proud to be leader of the Opposition," said the Alberta MP and former health minister.
It must be a death wish, the sort of thing that happens to other cults when they lose their Great Leader. And they all go crazy.
For it can be safely said that no member of the Harper regime, as rotten and incompetent as they all were, has screwed up so many jobs as has Rona Ambrose.
In 2006, in her first role as an Environment Minister, she almost brought down the Con government after only four months in office, when the opposition tabled a motion calling for her resignation
The motion contains a long list of criticisms against Ms. Ambrose, including the fact that she refused to attend a smog summit in Toronto and spurned repeated invitations to appear before the environment committee itself.
Some of the most serious complaints are that she does not intend for Canada to meet its obligations under the Kyoto Protocol and has no plan to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
For seeking to torch the planet instead of trying to save it.
Then as the Minister Responsible for the Status of Women she voted to support a motion that would have re-opened the abortion debate, only to face more calls for her resignation.
For once again doing the opposite of what she was supposed to be doing, and attacking the rights of Canadian women rather than defending them.
But it was in her latest role as Health Minister that Ambrose really hit rock bottom. .
By first distorting scientific facts about marijuana just to attack Justin Trudeau.
As only a reefer maniac or a Harper stooge could.
Only to be accused by the country's doctors of playing politics with the health of Canadians.
Then, when the Supreme Court ruled that medical marijuana can be legally consumed in a variety of ways from cannabis-infused cookies and brownies to cooking oils and tea, she declared that she was "outraged" by the ruling.
And I mean OUTRAGED...
Even though the only outrageous thing was the way she attacked the Supreme Court.
And even though consuming the drug orally is the only way it can be ingested by people with respiratory problems...
Which didn't seem to bother the so-called Health Minister in the least.
And if that wasn't bad enough, she also fought tooth and nail to close down Vancouver's needle-sharing Insite clinic, even though it has saved thousands of lives...
And after the Supreme Court kept the clinic open, she introduced legislation that would make it almost impossible to open a similar clinic anywhere else in Canada.
Which if there was any justice, should have resulted in attempted murder charges.
For seeking to pleasure the Con's rabid base, rather than following the sacred principles of harm reduction, and doing what she could to save as many lives as possible.
So why would ANYBODY choose that heartless Reform Con to be the interim leader of the Harper cult?
Answer: because she's from Alberta, and seems determined to serve Jason Kenney as faithfully as she once served Stephen Harper...
And her only mission is to keep the seat warm for his fleshy behind, until he can be chosen as the Con's permanent leader.
And the good news? If Ambrose's mission is to unify that shattered and demoralized party, her disastrous record suggests she will do exactly the opposite.
Her inability to speak French properly will cost the Cons any chance of building up their new support in Quebec. As will her attempts to criminalize abortion, and jail people for using marijuana.
And the best news?
More than seven years ago I made this button...
And now I can wear it again.
Or send a few copies to Michelle Rempel, because you can imagine how she's feeling eh?
The Cons have a death wish.
And I couldn't be more delighted...
