Dear Steve: It must suck to be you.
It can't be much fun being Stephen Harper these days, what with almost everything he touches turning to shit in short order.
First, there was that whole softwood lumber "deal," with which he tried to shovel almost half a billion dollars of Canada's money straight to the Bush White House. I haven't heard a lot about that lately -- what's going on there?
Then there were Steve's party members, all acting like Stewie Griffin in dire need of a diaper change -- Peter MacKay acting rude, Daniel Petit acting ruder and Rona Ambrose acting just plain moronic 24/7. Fine specimens of political maturity, the lot of them.
Then there's two of Steve's hand-picked, anointed ones getting their genitals handed to them in recent elections, Dianne Haskett in London North Centre and batshit-crazy Ted Morton out in Alberta. Man, that's gotta hurt.
And to top things off, Harper is determined to re-open the SSM debate, practically guaranteeing another wicked towel snap to the nads and tons of free publicity for new Liberal leader Stephane Dion.
Does life get any better than this?
