Stephen Harper, Stephen Lewis, and the Con Neanderthals



Somewhere in his grim bunker, or his dank closet, Stephen Harper must be celebrating madly.

I'm sure he can't quite believe his good fortune. Or the way the bony hand of fate has saved him from almost certain defeat.

But war has been good for Great Leader, and after trailing Justin Trudeau for a year and a half, he has finally caught him.

Shelly Glover and the New Con Assault on the CBC



I have to admit that when I heard that the Con Heritage Minister Shelly Glover was warning the CBC to boost its ratings, or ELSE, I thought of her former profession.

And of what some bloated foreign fascist, who may or may not have been Hermann Goring once said:

"When I hear the word culture I feel like reaching for my revolver."

How Stephen Harper Screwed the NDP AND Himself



He likes to think of himself as a Great Warrior Leader. And the greatest political genius  this country has ever known.

And of course his faithful fanatics in the PMO groom him like a queen bee, and feed his delusions.

But these days I wouldn't be surprised if they are all sitting there in shock, watching Stephen Harper weeping like a baby, or biting the carpet in his closet.

After finally realizing he has made a horrible, possibly fatal, and definitely elementary mistake.

Stephen Harper's Outrageous Boondoggle Tour of the North



We knew it was just another extravagant photo-op, a chance for Stephen Harper to pose as a Great Strong Leader and a Great Explorer.

The man who found the remains of the Franklin expedition, and told Putin to take a hike...



We knew he made an absolute fool of himself.

We knew he managed to spend a week in the Arctic without ever mentioning the words climate change...



Which takes a certain skill. The kind they teach you in prison.

But holy moly poley bear, who knew it was so EXPENSIVE !!!!

When the Harper Cons Don't Listen to Canada's Doctors



In the aftermath of the SARS crisis of 2003, the government created the Public Health Agency of Canada, and the position of Chief Public Health Officer to strengthen this country's medical defences.

After they were shown to be almost catastrophically inadequate.

But now Stephen Harper and his Cons are slashing the Public Health Agency's budget, and neutering the country's top doctor.

And to make matters even worse, they're not even listening to them. They're all but burying their reports.

Stephen Harper and the Great War on the Internet



He rules by fear. He tries to muzzle his opponents. He is terrorizing the civil service, and politicizing the police.

So when the Privacy Commissioner warns that Stephen Harper is trying to control the only thing he can't control, the internet. 

Canadians should be alarmed.

Julian Fantino and the Royal Conadian Choir



When I heard the news that Julian Fantino had met with a group of veterans in an apparent effort to rebuild all those bridges he has blown up in the last few years, I was suitably impressed.

Until I found out the meeting was at the Citadel in Quebec City, not Ottawa as is usually the case. So he could get as far away from the Parliamentary media as possible, short of heading for Tuktoyaktuk.

Or Stephen Harper's closet.

And that veterans who weren't prepared to join the choir and sing along with him, weren't invited.

Michael Sona, Stephen Harper, and the Robocall Conspiracy



It was an attempt to steal an election, and today one of Stephen Harper's Cons was sent to jail for that crime against democracy. 

Former Conservative staffer Michael Sona has been sentenced to nine months in jail plus a year on probation for trying to keep some voters in Guelph, Ont., from casting ballots in the 2011 federal election.

But it wasn't much of a sentence, and the burning question remains: 

What about the others?



For there were others, and it was a conspiracy.

Why The Harper Cons Must Pull These Porky Ads



As you know, I had a little fun yesterday with this latest Porky Action Plan ad, produced and directed by the Con Ministry of Propaganda and Disinformation.

Because it's so misleading, so obviously partisan, such a blatant attempt to brainwash Canadians with their own money.

I simply can't help myself...



For how else are you supposed to react to such totalitarian propaganda? Except laugh in the faces of those who made it.

Stephen Harper and the By-election Message Progressives Cannot Ignore



You'd think Stephen Harper would have been cheered by his two by-election victories in Ontario and Alberta.

But he wasn't. In the Commons yesterday he was tense and irritable.

And with good reason. For when you examine the results closely you can see that hidden in them are the seeds of his own destruction.
