That outrage seems a little misplaced, dude.

Blogging Tory "Christian Conservative" is awash in outrage over the senseless waste of taxpayer money:

Iggy: The $300 Million Dollar Man

So Iggy is gonna do it, and pull the trigger on yet ANOTHER election here in Canada, the FOURTH election in just five years. At a cost of NO LESS than $300,000,000 to the Canadian taxpayer... that's right, THREE HUNDRED MILLION DOLLARS.

$300 million dollars, just so the Liberals can MAYBE install Iggy as Prime Minister? I can think of a lot of better things we could spend that money on.

Mercifully, commenter Ted Betts makes a basic observation:

So now you care about $300 million?

Where was the concern about $300 million back when Harper broke his own promise to hold elections only on fixed dates?

To which I'm guessing ChCon's reaction was, "Um ... I don't see your point."

BONUS DUMBTH: The dumbassitude purely spills over at ChCon's place, as he defends that last election:

Ted, last year, Parliament HAD ground to a halt, so I could understand the need for an election... clear the air, and let the people decide.

Really? Parliament had "ground to a halt?" Would that be because of all that Conservative legislation that had been ruthlessly voted down? Oh, wait ... that never happened.

I'm not sure I'm going to hear a stupider defense of last fall's election, but these are the Blogging Tories we're talking about. They should never be misunderestimated.

Parliament became "disfunctional" because fat stephen said it had.

End of story for un-thinking blogging tories.
