Stephen Harper is a lying sack of crap. Now you know where the Blogging Tories learned it.
P.S. Should we take bets on how quickly this becomes a "Harper Government Accomplishment?"
P.P.S. Oh, for fuck's sake. I really should have checked first.
BOMUS SNARK: CTV identified the pathetic douchebaggery in the opening paragraph:
Prime Minister Stephen Harper, who has railed against the Senate and championed a plan to make it an elected body, is about to appoint some of his closest Conservative insiders to the Red Chamber, as well as former NHL coach Jacques Demers.
I might have led off differently:
Stephen Harper, whose promise to not appoint anyone to the Senate meant as much as his promise to hold elections on predictable, fixed dates, lied again.
I like my version. It's punchier.
