Someone's still after that job as Head Fluffer. We're not done here.
AFTERSNARK: I'm guessing that Captain Democracy Stephen Taylor might want to spend more time getting his story straight. As you can see in his soppy love missive to Stephen Harper, Taylor admits that some photos have gone bye-bye but defends those disappearances as perfectly normal.
On the other hand, we have a contradictory claim here:
"We have not removed any pictures of the PM," a Privy Council Office spokeswoman insisted late Monday.
A spokesman for the prime minister made the same assertion.
So which is it, Steve? Have some pics been removed but that sort of thing happens in the normal course of webby maintenance? Or should we go with the PCO's position that nothing's been taken down? Because, really, Steve, you can't have it both ways. You do understand that, right?
A suggestion, Steve: You might want to take a few minutes and figure out which talking point you're going with. Otherwise, you'll just end up looking like a buffoon.
And, no, we're still not done here.
BONUS TRACK: Impolitical draws attention to the very same howling inconsistency:
Fun, fun, fun with the PMO who ridiculously maintained the position that no changes had been made to the actionplan.gc.ca website but who have now gone silent in the face of evidence to the contrary having been presented to them:
Yeah, it's awkward when you can't figure out which lie to go with. And note how Impolitical yanks down Stephen Taylor's panties and gives him the appropriate public spanking as well for being such a useless hack.
As Impolitical says: fun, fun, fun.
DUMBASSITUDE REDUX: One of Taylor's loyal BT acolytes takes logic outside and beats it senseless with an axe handle:
Dear Canadian Press: Since your story about pictures of the PM being removed from a government website has proven to be totally false; ...
The hilarity therein is based on the fact that Ardvark is linking to Taylor, whose position is that pictures were removed, so why Ardsy is using Taylor for supporting evidence is a total puzzler. I'm guessing illiteracy has something to do with it.
