One of these things is not like the other.

1) Whingers who still have a grip on reality:

Around the country, many Conservatives were furious that Harper's inner circle had failed to consult more widely before delivering the fiscal update.

One senior Conservative said Harper had shot himself in the foot for ideological reasons — much as he did when he announced $45 million in arts funding cuts last summer, which cost his party seats in Quebec in the Oct. 14 federal election.

"These guys think it's campus politics, so they get too cute by half and then f--- everything up," he said.

"We're in the middle of an economic crisis and they pull a stunt like this?"

2) Whingers for whom everything Stephen the Magnificent touches will always become Princess Rainbow Sparkle Pony.

I trust you can appreciate the difference.

Those Blogging Tories sure are deluded.

I caught Pierre Poilievre making a total ass of himself on CBC Newsworld. The desperate conservatives have released "news" regarding an NDP caucus meeting that they were invited to listen in on. Oh the scandal!!! The Bloc (or should I say SEPARATISTS) and NDP have been conducting "secret shady meetings" to reverse the election results in their quest for a MASSIVE power grab.

I sure hope it was caught on YouTube because it is so over the top you can't help but laugh. What a weasel.

Also go vote for coalition:

By the by, the Winnipeg Free Press poll is now recording 69% in favour of a coalition government.

Niles said... 4:30 am when the story was posted on the 30th... it included

"The New Democrats held a special caucus meeting to brief MPs on developments and seek their input. Eleven of the MPs were in Ottawa, the rest participated by phone. New Democrat MP Libby Davies (Vancouver East) said "progress is being made" as discussions centre on common points of policy."

And by the afternoon of the 30th, the Conservatives sent Pierre Polly the Parrot on to CBC to lead the charge on their amaaaazing 'gotcha', which consisted of official Conservative Party of Canada representatives having gotten the access numbers to the conference call and *covertly* listening in and recording the NDP caucus session. And then screaming at the country the NDP have uh...been talking to the Bloc before last week about forming government ideas and this is baaaad baaaad baaaad.

When immediately confronted by the CBC interviewer with the infamous 2004 Harper opposition letter to the GG, Pierre hesitated, denied the letter, then claimed it was different because pain hurt *them*. and then went back to squawking for a cracker.

Man, I hope the NDP can charge the eavesdropping parties with something actually criminal as well as Parliamentary ethics spankings.

If this is all the Cons have, they SO DO NOT DESERVE to be the government. I wonder how many 'rinse and repeat' moments we're going to have from them in the next week, since Pierre wouldn't confirm or deny in the Ceeb interview that the Cons might pull an early prorogue to keep the opposition from throwing them out.

Niles said...

Err...and my kinda point was, the Cons didn't need to actually record the caucus meeting they could have just read the news already out for the day.

..firstly, glad you can point out that not all Conservatives are of the "kool-aid" drinking brand.. including moi..

Re Winnipeg.. Interesting, though, not surprising coming from the Province known for:

a) regularly voting NDP;
b) (not coincidentally) having the most miserable economy in the free world.
