  Stephen Harper is an Angry, Angry Man

Another jewel from the man who wantes to be Prime Minister so badly, his brain has imploded from the pressure.

Said Stephen Harper in the Globe and Mail after being owned by the Liberals for the 158th consecutive time:

"So I guess what it should remind Canadians is that when push comes to shove, the Liberals will make a deal with anybody. It doesn't matter if it's with socialists, or the separatists or any bunch of crooks they can find."

Really Stephen? Did you just equate two parties with 28 per cent of the popular vote between them to criminals? I guess the NDP voters are lost to him anyway, but if you're looking to sandbag your party's chances of adding seats in Quebec, you're on the right track.

Here's the real problem with Harper: his giant, all-consuming ego. He takes a bad beat in parliament, his adolescent brain can't handle it and he starts shooting off his mouth. His ego has apparently also blinded Harper to the fact that HE'S A TERRIBLE POLITICIAN. I mean, I'm sure he was a real crackerjack accoutant...why not just stick with that?

As much as I enjoy watching conservatives wandering around confused and weeping softly to themselves, I can't help but think our country- and our democracy- would be a lot better off with an effective opposition leader. You know, a statesman with some ideas and a genuine concern for this country. Power-mongers need not apply.
Great post Graeme. I also think the country is ill-served by such weak opposition. And if west wasn't so locked into the CP, then it wouldn't be a problem. But they are, so the rest of the country suffers ...
As Jack Layton said:

“We were able to do with nineteen MPs what the Official Opposition wouldn't do with 98 MPs. We made this Parliament work, and we delivered results for people.”

Imagine that. That is what Harper should have been doing instead of crying like a baby every time something didn't go his way. The people want action out of the opposition. And this year, a party with 19 seats has done more for Candada than the one with 98. That's leaving out that the party with 98 is pissed off about a budget amendment that a broad spectrum of Canadians were completely behind.

Poor Stephen.
The Plastic Man needs a lot of seasoning to become palatable to more of the Canadian public... If he wanted to get whipped this much, he should have called Mistress Matisse and saved the Feds the trouble.

Jack of all trades, master of none, Graeme is many things to many people. Unfortunately, none of them find him very life-affirming in any capacity. He is a freelance writer, broadcaster, amateur cryptozoologist and occasional political commentator late of London, England and now based in Toronto. Most of the time, he's confused. And a little hungry. But mostly just confused and somewhat uncomfortable writing in the third person.
