Stephen Harper and the Perfect Storm that Will Defeat Him

Tue, 07/22/2014 - 02:40


He has yet to comment on the latest twist in the Duffy scandal. But in his shadowy bunker Stephen Harper must be feeling the heat.

For by now even he must realize that the writing is on the wall.

And that he could soon be sweating in a witness box.

Trying to explain under oath what Nigel Wright meant when he said that Harper had told him the deal to pay off Duffy was "good to go."

The leader of a tired, increasingly unpopular government with nowhere to go but down.

The Con Regime Goes After Pen Canada

Mon, 07/21/2014 - 21:35


We always knew he was the most disgusting bully this country has ever seen.

We knew that he was using Revenue Canada to try to intimidate his political opponents.

Or anyone who disagreed with the foul policies of his depraved regime.

And now that monstrous political thug is going after Pen Canada.

Stephen Harper and the Scandal that Will Destroy Him

Sun, 07/20/2014 - 02:48


Well there I was today in the north of Scotland, when I thought I saw a mysterious creature in this little bay.

At first I thought it was another kind of Nessie. Or a big fat dolphin.

But then I realized it wasn't eh?

It was only Moby Duff...



Getting ready to dive dive dive !!!!  And take down  Stephen Harper.

Scottish Independence and the Search for the New Left

Thu, 07/17/2014 - 02:03


OK. So it's probably not the best time to leave Canada. Not in the middle of that tragically short warm period we call summer in the Great White North.

But politically it's the dead season here, or even deader than usual.

While in Scotland where I'm going, it's very much alive.

The Con Apocalypse and the Humbling of Stephen Harper

Wed, 07/16/2014 - 03:35


As you may remember, I was deeply troubled by Stephen Harper's wild diatribe at the Calgary Stampede BBQ almost two weeks ago.

I couldn't decide whether he had inhaled the fumes of his own propaganda, like Rob Ford sucks on a crack pipe.

Or was lying compulsively. Again.

Or whether inflamed by the sight of all those cowboy hats, he had finally gone off the deep end.

Stephen Harper's Hugely Embarrassing Economic Problem

Tue, 07/15/2014 - 04:46


Well we all know how Stephen Harper likes to portray himself as a Great Economist Leader.

The brilliant leader with the best job record in the G7, or the best growth record since Jesus took five loaves and two fish, and fed five thousand.

And the ENVY of the world.

But sadly for him, Harper's story is also starting to smell a little fishy. 

Or just plain fraudulent.

The Horror of Gaza and the Shame of the Harper Regime

Mon, 07/14/2014 - 03:53


It's taken me a few days to summon up the strength to write something, anything, about the horror in Gaza.

I just couldn't bring myself to look at the images of this latest war. 

As rockets from Palestinian militants in Gaza continue to fly into Israel and Israel continues to strike hard at Gaza, the options for each side are hardening. Both sides are employing brinksmanship, carrying out their biggest raids yet this weekend and threatening much more to come.

Not when I'm still recovering from the images of the last one...

Stephen Harper and the Summer of Discontent

Sun, 07/13/2014 - 05:21


Golly. I only hope Stephen Harper was able to shield himself from the rays of last night's super moon.  

Because in his agitated state I can only imagine the effect they might have had on him.


He desperately needs to relax, but how can he? When he's facing a long summer of discontent, he just can't get Justin Trudeau and the Chief Justice out of his mind.


And everywhere he looks the Cons are getting pounded.

Stephen Harper and the Losing Battle for Quebec

Sat, 07/12/2014 - 04:26


Well as you know, and as I mentioned the other day, Stephen Harper has set out to try to woo the province of Quebec. 

Or at least the people in the relatively small region in and around Quebec City, where he is planning to hold a special cabinet meeting. 

The rare cabinet meeting to be held outside Ottawa, which is in preparation for early September, will allow Mr. Harper to promote the role of Conservative Fathers of Confederation in protecting the rights of the provinces when Canada was founded in 1867.

Because in the rest of the province his amatory advances wouldn't stand a chance...



But so deranged and desperate is Great Leader, that he has started comparing himself to George-Étienne Cartier.

And claiming credit for vanquishing the SEPARATISTS !!!!
