Via Steve V, we learn that the Stephen Harper Brownshirt Party of Canada would really, really like the official opposition to save their worthless, sorry asses from the ramifications of their infinite assholitude:
OTTAWA - Justice Minister Rob Nicholson is “hopeful” the opposition parties will agree to reinstate 14 crime bills that died with Parliament's prorogation late last year...
“To say, oh, they don’t like prorogation so they’re going to start opposing bills that better protect Canadian victims and law-abiding Canadians ...
That’s a bad reason,” Nicholson said. “I’ve got questions for them if they are just going to hold this up because they’re in a snit about something.” Nicholson made his appeal Tuesday while celebrating Bill C-25, which came into effect Tuesday and eliminates the courts’ practice of awarding prisoners a two-for-one - sometimes even three-for-one - credit for time served in pre-trial custody.
At the risk of being intemperate, the Opposition should tell Nicholson that he can go pleasure himself with Kathy Shaidle's dick. All this time, we've been told by Stephen "Il Douche" Harper that all those lost bills weren't a big deal, that we could catch up in short order, that Parliament would reconvene and we could zip those things through lickety-split, etc, etc.
Unspoken in all of that was, apparently, that it would require the co-operation and good will of the Opposition -- the same Opposition that Harper and Nicholson bent over a table and rogered with glee month after month. And now Harper wants those same folks to pull his nutsack out of the fire. See above.
What's amusing is that Nicholson seems prepared to place the blame squarely on the Opposition. That's hysterical. "Yes, yes, we undemocratically prorogued Parliament, and it's all their fault for not making things better."
Let me suggest a more wide-sweeping rationalization for both Harper and Nicholson:
"Well, sure, we massively screwed this country into the deficit-laden, racist, scientifically-illiterate, clusterfuck banana republic laughingstock that it is now. But if the Opposition had simply voted us out, none of this would have happened. So it's their fault. Letting us run things for this long? What kind of irresponsible retard lets that happen?"
As you can see, the above is infinitely applicable. Use it wherever a Stephen Harper Party of Canada clusterfuck is found.
AND SPEAKING OF QUESTIONS ... it's hilarious for Nicholson to get his panties in a bunch thusly:
“I’ve got questions for [the opposition] if they are just going to hold this up because they’re in a snit about something.”
You've got questions for them, do you, Rob? That's fascinating, since many of them had questions for you regarding the mistreatment of Afghan detainees, which prompted that worthless government of yours to piss its pants and prorogue Parliament to escape from the relentless scrutiny. And now you have to gall to suggest that some people should, what, be held to account and be forced to address whatever issues are bugging you at the moment?
You might want to rethink that strategy, Rob. 'Cuz it just makes you look like a dick. Really. A total dick.
