Harper — who once said he would never appoint senators but instead wanted them elected — has now appointed 33 Conservatives to the 105-seat upper House in the past 18 months.
Pretty much sums up the sleaziness of the man, doesn't it?
AFTERSNARK: Say what?
Harper has typically waited for a number of Senate vacancies to open up before making a group appointment, but officials in the government say there is too much important legislation to be passed before the summer recess and every Tory vote is needed.
In unrelated news, blowing six weeks on prorogation recently was a perfectly good idea. Wasn't that what you heard?
Frankly, I don't know why Harper doesn't simply take all of those Liberal senators outside and have them executed. I doubt it would surprise anyone by now.
