Is Andrew Scheer Hoping To Succeed Himself?



Andrew Scheer has always been a weird bird. He's a religious fanatic, a racist, a misogynist, a homophobe, and a climate change denier.

But lately his kooky behaviour appears to be spinning out of control. He seems to be campaigning for office again, even though he's just a lame duck loser, and he's only supposed to be keeping the seat warm for the next leader.

So much so that it took him forever to react to that horrible massacre in Nova Scotia.

No doubt worried that any talk of gun control might anger his gun loving base.

Or make them believe he wasn't one of them.






What Scheer did want to talk about, a lot, was how he could get more facetime in the shuttered House of Commons.

He demanded four days a week, he got one. 

And judging by the way he behaved, that's one too many.

For the way the Ugly American stared at the decent Justin Trudeau was chilling...



More like Ted Bundy than a member of a Canadian parliament.

And to make matters worse, all him and his Cons wanted to talk about was China. In the middle of a pandemic. Can you believe it?

You know, a few days ago Chantal Hebert wrote that Scheer's tone-deaf response to Covid-19 would be bad news for the next Con leader. 

As matters currently stand, there is precious little appetite among the public for anything that smacks of partisan politics.

It would be wrong to assume that the Trudeau’s government will alone bear the political risks of a more active House of Commons. Unless Scheer and his caucus raise their game, he stands to leave a field of ruins for his successor.


But here's where things get even stranger. For there are some wild rumours swirling around that have Scheer dreaming of succeeding HIMSELF.

The Con fixer Kory Teneycke made a veiled allusion to that rumour in this story. 

For as long as this zombie apocalypse continues, the Conservatives will have a zombie leader at the helm.

Where he calls Scheer a zombie, but suggests that Justin Trudeau has performed so badly that he has revived the Ugly American, and brought him back from the dead.



Since we're having fun with hypotheticals and making bold predictions, perhaps Andrew Scheer will continue to perform strongly through this crisis and will attempt to rejoin the living by running for the leadership again himself.

Which explains why Scheer is so desperate to raise his profile and attack Trudeau again.

As for me, I find it hard to believe that that such wacky plan could exist, except in the fevered minds of the Ugly American and his religious fanatics.

But the Con leadership candidates are so mediocre, and Scheer is so crazy desperate, that I suppose anything could happen.

And if it does, I hope it's followed by a quick election.

For as this latest poll shows, it would mean a super majority for the Trudeau Liberals.



The Cons had a chance to get rid of Andrew Scheer but they blew it.

And unless they take drastic action...



He will continue to poison their party.

And take them all down with him...

A newer L├ęger poll was released today that had the Liberals up to 42%, and the Lean Tossup aggregator model now has them at 185 seats with the Cons at 93. The Tru Grits have even made Skippy and Toolio's seats competitive, along with that racist so-con jerk Derek Sloan (plus JWR and even Jaggy haha). Scheer isn't going to "succeed" anybody, he's a failure, and he's going to set Harper's haunted house on fire before he makes his graceless exit. After the tragic events in Nova Scotia, even Potato Pete is going to wear his gun-fanatic sweater like a stinking albatross around his neck. I really like the expression Blanchet used to describe their immature brand of dicking around. The less tataouinage that Scheer and his irrelevant TrumpCons have to infect the halls of Parliament, the better. Good riddance to bad rubbish.

For sure he and Herr Harper are plotting something. Air Show and the Tool, no no no. They told me I had to go into the dustbin of history, I just said no no no.

I find even the Con media are on the attack! I could cite many examples, but if you are paying close attention, you will know what I am talking about!

Even though the image is blurred, I can see the absolute spite and malice oozing from Scheer's toxic pores, or should I say spores? He's definately fully infected with the Trudeau 2.0 Con-oravirus. I think he thinks he should be given equal say in what the government does at all times. Sorry Andy. You lost the election, therefore you are a loser and losers don't have a say in the winning governments daily actions. You can piss and moan as you always do but at this point in your drama queen theatrical monotony, nobody cares or listens to what you have to say. You should do as your predecessor did when he got his ass kicked by JT. Crawl under a rock and hide for 6 months. Maybe your deep, disturbing mental condition will improve and perhaps you can be reintegrated back into society as an insurance clerk or something similar befitting of your skills set.

I find it easy to believe that Scheer wants to hang on to his job. As Simon has documented over and over again Scheer is a religious extremist who believes that it is his holy mission to be prime minister. The old Conservative Party is dead and it should now be known as the (fake) Christian Party of Canada.

Mr. Scheer would like to have another shot and this pandemic might give him such an opportunity. The contest to replace him is off for the foreseeable future so he is trying to maintain his base and sew the seeds of doubt among other Canadians for when the crisis begins to abate and the recovery begins. He is hoping the government bungles said recovery so that he can convince the other Opposition Parties to bring down the government.

I think he is dreaming and I also believe he has underestimated the change to Canadian politics this pandemic has caused but we will have to wait and see.

Hi Jackie....although we are living through bleak times I'm very happy with the political situation. Everything is coming up roses. The Cons are a mess, Trudeau's polls are soaring, and Trump is losing his mind. Now if we can hold on to our own minds, we can really celebrate when it's over....

Simon said...

Hi Steve....The poor quality of the candidates running for the Con leadership is a reflection of how far that party has fallen. If they didn't have the support of so many rube racists in Alberta and Saskatchewan they would be nothing at all....

Simon said...

Hi Marmalade....The Con media are desperate, they see Trudeau's polls soaring and there's nothing they can do about it, except try to undermine Team Canada's war on Covid-19. They are showing their true colours and hopefully they will pay for that...

Simon said...

Hi JD....Yes, Scheer has had the Trudeau Coronavirus for a long time, although some doctors I know suggest it's a form of rabies. He has contributed nothing of value to the fight against the pandemic and as far as I'm concerned he should be muted until it's over. Happily by then he should just be an ordinary MP, and the loser can be completely ignored. I'm sure he must be doing some hard praying this weekend, and offering to sacrifice his eldest son if he can just keep his job, but I don't think anyone or anything can help him now...

Simon said...

Hi anon....Scheer has the support of over 45 Social conservative MPs who were the ones who voted to keep him on as leader. They are the ugliest collection of bigots and scum bags this country has ever seen, but for keeping Scheer on they deserve a tin medal, for it has effectively damaged the Cons so much it's going to take a very long time before Canada's RepubliCon party can even hope to recover. And you are right to point out that they are fake Christians, who are taking the name of their lord in vain and couldn't be more evil or pathetic...

Simon said...

Hi Ottlib....I agree, Scheer is definitely hoping that the pandemic, and the poor quality of the leadership candidates, will allow him to get another chance to be leader. But sadly for him most Canadians, including a lot of Cons, want Trudeau to succeed so Scheer is only damaging himself. As you say it's hard to predict what the future holds, but I'm pretty sure it doesn't include Scheer....
