Wankers, prorogation and a new CC HQ reader challenge.
It seems like only yesterday that Canada's intellectually crippled were celebrating the ruthless political gamesmanship of Stephen Harper. What a masterful stroke, they cried, using prorogation for the second time in a year to cut the Opposition off at the knees. What a brilliant tactician, riding high in the polls, the master of his domain, yadda yadda yadda.
But these days ... oh, dear.
Which inspires one to ask, is there any evidence of a single idiot wanker who was crowing gleefully over Harper's iron-fisted dismantling of democracy only a few weeks ago, but is now sobbing into his beer at the end of the bar, lamenting, "What the fuck was I thinking?"
Seriously, if one wanders the barren wasteland of Canadian conservative intellectualism, can one find anyone who, having thought that whole prorogation was just ducky, the cat's meow, 23 Ski-Doo, is now more than happy to admit that it was an unmitigated disaster?
Feel free to check things out, and get back to me -- leave answers in the comments section.
P.S. Pointing at people who thought it was an asinine idea from the start doesn't count. What we're looking for is evidence that, somewhere in the Canadian Idiot-sphere, there exists someone who is actually capable of learning from a savage, political boot to the berries.
WILL WONDERS NEVER CEASE? How about that? Although identifying Connie Fournier doesn't count since she thought prorogation sucked from the start. But the obvious sense of betrayal is amusing, don't you think?
