Conservative wit

A necessarily short post.

A website attacking Dion features such sterling examples of biting wit as musing whether or not he will move back to France. Honestly, Captain Underpants couldn't have said it any better.
I'd give you the direct quotes but unfortunately the website concludes with this warning :
"This website is the property of the Conservative Party of Canada and may not be reproduced in whole or in part without express written permission."
Oh dear, I probably shouldn't have quoted that.
Anyway, humour of this caliber would seem to indicate that the Cons are hoping to lower the voting age to 10.

Our next example is Con Scott Reid heatedly asking for a ruling as to whether NDP Pat Martin was "guilty of an offence" under the Security of Information Act for passing out copies of secret documents that had already been published in two national newspapers.

OK, so that last one wasn't intentionally funny.

Ooooooo, Alison, you'd better be askeered!!! The CPC may be after you now. Quick, run and hide!! Try hiding in a gay bar or hash-house - They wouldn't dare step foot in them . . . .

"Try hiding in a gay bar or hash-house"

That's probably not necessary. Anywhere in Toronto would probably do.

Children. Our political class is composed of children. My grade 9 mock parliament was (slightly) more mature.

Since the CPC is purportedly micro-managed from the top, can we assume that it reflects the PM's own sense of humour and style? It would seem he is much better at nastiness than at humour. Practice makes perfect?

As evilscientist points out, perhaps it just tells us that the Cons don't have anything good to say about themselves...

Yes and Dion probably takes violin lessons after school and invites girls to his birthday parties.

I hope the voters are getting tired of this constant smear campaigning.
