It's hard to decide which Con clown is more pathetic. The one on his way to the funeral of Nelson Mandela.
The man he once called a terrorist who should be kept in prison, or hanged.
Or the one waddling down the street at a Santa Claus parade throwing candy canes to children.
As their parents tried to shield some of them from his ghastly sight.
But what is only too obvious is the damage both are doing to Canada's reputation.

In my sadness over the death of Nelson Mandela, and because I'm so tired, I forgot that Friday was the anniversary of a monumental Canadian tragedy.
That on a snowy day in Montreal twenty four years ago, an angry man with a gun stormed through an engineering school and killed fourteen young women.
Fourteen young women who were killed in Canada’s worst mass shooting were remembered on Friday amid repeated calls for more to be done to eradicate violence against women.

When I heard the news that Nelson Mandela had died at first I was sad, like billions of people all over the world.
For he was my greatest living hero, and somehow I had hoped that he would live forever.
“Our nation has lost its greatest son. Our people have lost a father,” South African President Jacob Zuma said in a sombre speech to the nation just before midnight, broadcast on all major television channels. “He is now resting. He is now at peace. ... Although we knew this day would come, nothing will diminish our sense of a profound and enduring loss.”

Well yesterday he was looking for any camera he could find to try to keep his face in the news.
But tonight he was hanging on for dear life and dodging the media, after police documents finally revealed the true heart of the Rob Ford scandal. Not just a mayor out of control.
But one at the mercy of CRIMINALS.

As I watched Stephen Harper being grilled by Tom Mulcair today I couldn't help being struck by how beaten he looked.
How the fight seems to have gone out of him. At one point after slumping into his seat, he even let Paul Calandra the Con buffoon answer a question from Mulcair, something he never does.
Only to be forced back to his feet by Mulcair with this question:
And you can see what I mean eh? He's there but he isn't.
And it all made me ask myself the same question John Ivison asks today: Is Stephen Harper getting ready to RESIGN?
Well it's not exactly the French Revolution eh? But this being Canada it's probably the closest we can get to one.
Michael Chong has presented his Reform Act that would shake up our Parliament to its very foundations.
Conservative MP Michael Chong today tabled the proposed reform act, a private member's bill intended to restore a system of checks and balances that would shift some power away from party leaders towards members of Parliament and their party caucuses.
And trim the power of would be dictators like Stephen Harper.
Golly. Because I've been so busy trying to stay on top of the Senate scandal, I haven't been able to write anything about the continuing adventures of Rob Ford.
But they are continuing. And it's still a horror show.
Even though the Fordzilla can't seem to understand that he's only the mayor in name only.

Well he wasn't in the House of Commons today to answer questions about the latest twist in his sordid Senate scandal.
No doubt recovering from his long musical set at a Jewish community fundraiser the night before. Or too busy promoting his boring hockey book in downtown Toronto this morning.
So he didn't have to try to explain why his PMO lawyer's e-mails mysteriously disappeared.
Well I see that Brian Pallister, the leader of the Manitoba Conservatives, wants everybody to know that he didn't mean to offend any unbelievers by calling them "infidel atheists."
Conservative Leader Brian Pallister says he didn’t mean to offend anyone last week when he wished everyone, including "infidel atheists," the best of the holiday season -- and he believes the comment has been "torqued" by his political opponents.
In this bizarre Christmas message...
But he says an infidel is an infidel. He blames his opponents for the controversy. And he's not really sorry.

Golly. It's a miracle I tell you. Remember how the Cons told us that Benjamin Perrin's e-mails had been deleted when he left the PMO?
So we couldn't determine what that PMO lawyer told Stephen Harper about the Duffy deal.
Well it turns out that was just another oops, or another Big Lie.
