Leaving a trail of slime wherever they go ...
Via Liberal Catnip, we learn to our shock and amazement that Stephen Harper and his Harperettes are once again acting like spoiled children, soiling official Government of Canada websites with partisan propaganda.
Yes, raising the issue during question period was clearly the right thing to do but anyone who thinks the CPoC would realize the error of their ways and act with any maturity has clearly not been paying attention. However, the goal here should not be to effect any changes, but simply to start keeping a record because, if the Liberals manage to get their collective shit together (a minor miracle in the making) and win the next election, they'll have a lengthy collection of things on their "Getting Even" list to start working through.
First thing would be to remove that pretentious "Canada's New Government" slogan from all official government web pages, and replace it with something more appropriate. I'm thinking of possibly, "Canada's Adult Government: The Grown-Ups are Back in Charge and We're Dreadfully Sorry About that Nasty Bout of Wingnuttery Back There." Sure it's verbose, but if you use a slightly smaller font, I'm sure it would fit. And if any official GC web pages need photos of the respective party leaders, well I'm guessing that this would work just fine, don't you?
Yeah, if I was a Liberal, I wouldn't be wasting any energy trying to get the current government to act like adults. No, I'd just be watching carefully, and keeping a meticulous log book of every childish abuse of power ... and just waiting for the chance when I had the administrative password for those web pages.
Oh, yes, that's when the fun would begin.
