Apparently, there's nothing sufficiently emotional, touching or historically heart-wrenching that that bloated sack of festering pus Stephen Harper can't reduce to cheap-shot, partisan politics:
There was little conciliatory mood in the House of Commons on the eve of the [residential schools] apology, as Harper accused opposition Liberals of "playing politics" with the historic statement he was scheduled to deliver at 3 p.m. today, followed by statements from opposition party leaders.
Harper was responding to a request from Liberal MP Tina Keeper to allow aboriginal leaders to respond to the apology from the floor of the House of Commons, where their remarks would be placed into Hansard, the official parliamentary record.
Harper rejected the request on grounds of precedent and tradition and urged the Liberals to "simply get behind" the apology and quit making political hay out of the events.
Good thinking, Stephen. After all, when you're apologizing for what is effectively decades of horrific cultural genocide of Canada's aboriginals, it really should be all about you, not them.
What an utterly worthless piece of shit. It's not that Harper makes me embarrassed to be Canadian; it's that he makes me embarrassed to be a member of the same species.
