why, none other than the twisted gnomes from conservative.ca (those would be the classy kids that are currently running our government in a haze of sleaze). So I thought I'd just say welcome scum bags and smear artists. But before I got to writing this post, I noticed something else that caught my attention, an advertising concern that had followed the exact same link path as the sleazy Cons.
That would be Vickers & Benson. Big deal, right? Well if one casts an eye back in time, one would note that Vickers & Benson are the very same firm that was at the centre of the Liberals Adscam scandal. Sadly, this is all you find when you click on their web address:
But fear not, there's lots of juicy information available in the report on the forensic audit that is available here on the CBC site. Don't recall that scandal, Adscam slipped your mind since Blogging Toerags Adscam and other Con party drones Adscam haven't been whining about it Adscam in the last, say, fifteen minutes.

Now one has to wonder whether our pals over at Con central might have decided to employ the services of these notable advertisers, whose GoC contract history is so, um, rich. It would be wrong not to speculate, as they say. And since we're speculating, it would be unfair not to note that Vickers & Benson has recently been acquired by Havas Advertising a European concern out of Paris, France. Just noting that, as the Cons are so very much in love with Europe, France and other such "cosmopolitans". Heh.
