Nice family you got there ...
CC NEWS -- As a way of defeating Prime Minister Stephen Harper's plan to stack the Senate with Conservatives in order to push through his legislation unopposed, blogger Robert McClelland has proposed to lobby other senators to cross the floor and join the Liberals.
When told of this possibility, Harper dismissed it by saying that, if that happened, he would simply have the first floor-crossing Senator and his entire family taken out and executed on the front lawn of Parliament as a warning to the rest of them.
When told that was probably illegal, Harper shot back, "Yeah? And what's the Supreme Court going to do about it? I know where they live, too."
When asked his opinion of Harper's plan, Blogging Tory co-founder Stephen Taylor looked briefly thoughtful, then opined that, as long as the Senator being executed was a socialist or a separatist, he didn't really see a problem.
