As you know, I sometimes like to portray the foul Harper regime as a Con clown circus.
Because although they are the most sinister government in Canadian history, fanatical, brutish, and cruel.
They are also hysterically incompetent.
And today was one of their best shows EVER !!!!
About ten days ago I wrote a post about the CBC and the Ghomeshi scandal, and I blamed its hapless managers for creating a cult of celebrity where such a horrible thing could happen.
Then came this shabby incident.
Which not only reinforced my belief that CBC management treats its "stars" like gods. It also convinced me that some of those managers don't know what they're doing, and should be fired immediately.
And now from the guy most responsible for exposing the Ghomeshi scandal comes this latest shocking revelation: CBC management isn't just promoting a celebrity cult.
It's a cult ITSELF!!!!!

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.

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."

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.
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 !!!!

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.
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.

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.

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.
