Once upon a time Andrew Scheer's Twitter feed pumped out a grotesque anti-Trudeau attack ad about every six hours, seven days a week.
But now that torrent of Con diarrhoea has all but dried up, along with Scheer's
creepy smile which has apparently been replaced by a look of sheer terror.
As he comes to terms with the reason he was forced to resign so suddenly.
The wrath of Stephen Harper.
Stephen Harper and other directors of the Conservative Fund dismissed the party’s executive director over the payment of private school tuition fees for Andrew Scheer’s children to avoid a backlash from donors and grassroots Conservatives, according to a source close to the former prime minister.
And although Harper claims he knew nothing about that payment, the scandal just keeps on growing.
A member of the Conservative Party’s fundraising arm says he doesn’t believe the rules were followed when the party approved the use of donations to cover the private-school tuition fees of some of Leader Andrew Scheer’s children.
And the whole sordid mess has renewed speculation that Harper might want to be Con leader.
The other day Michael Harris wrote a long article suggesting that Great Failed Leader might be considering a comeback.
For months now, sources within the Conservative party have been telling me of an internal faction eager to see Andrew Scheer gone in order to make way for the return of Stephen Harper as party leader.
Nothing we’ve seen in recent weeks, and now today, argues against this. In fact, Scheer’s doomed attempt to hang on to the CPC leadership has been like watching a puppy running around on a six-lane highway. And now he’s roadkill.
So who might be next up? As the Christmas ditty goes, it’s beginning to look a lot like Harper, everywhere you go.
But Harris' article rings hollow. It's a lot of separate stories with nothing to hold them together. And one gets the feeling that since he once wrote a book on Harper, Harris is just looking to sell a few more copies.
Which also seems to apply to Paul Wells, who was also recently spotted beating a drum for a strongman like Harper.
For Wells wrote not one but two books on Harper, and must be desperate to get rid of all those unsold copies gathering dust in his basement.Maclean’s writer Paul Wells says that the type of leader the Conservative Party needs now is an out sized personality, like maybe Stephen Harper?#cdnpoli pic.twitter.com/NzBO8FlwC0— Wendy Mesley (@WendyMesleyCBC) December 15, 2019
But sadly for Harris and Wells, the most of the reaction online was muted to say the least, or too rude to print. And the only one who seemed to get excited or aroused by the Harper comeback story was the Disaffected Liberace....
Who used it as yet another excuse to go after Justin Trudeau.
Who as you may know he blames for EVERYTHING...
Even though, Trudeau's popularity is soaring...
While Harper's popularity couldn't be lower...
So if Trudeau ever had to take on Harper again, his victory would be even more overwhelming than it was last time...
But then he's not afraid of Harper, unlike Andrew Scheer...
Who must surely know that now that his Big Daddy is annoyed with him, he won't be going anywhere.
But then neither will his scandalous Cons, who no decent people could ever vote for.
And the answer to this question will always be no...
