The big blue sweater vest gaffes

Our story so far...

1) Cons air campaign ad of a puffin shitting on Dion

2) Communications director Ryan Sparrow publicly questions the motives of a grieving father whose son was killed in Afghanistan.

3) AgMin Gerry Ritz jokes about nine listeria deaths - "a death by a thousand cuts - or should I say cold cuts", and responds to a new death : "Please tell me it's [Lib Ag critic]Wayne Easter."

4) Assistant to Transport Minister Lawrence Cannon disses First Nation protesters : "If you behave and you're sober and there's no problems and if you don't do a sit down and whatever, I don't care."

Steve's response to 1 through 3 : Not me - someone else's fault.
#3 was a bit of a stretch in blame-shifting but eventually Steve settled on the bureaucrats who leaked the remarks. #4 has not yet been assigned.

Harris-Decima polling results - Cons drop 6% points in twelve days, from 42% to 36%.
The big blue sweater continues to unravel...

We can only hope that they display themselves as the human garbage that they are.

There aren't that many KKKate McMillan KKKanadians are there?

Harper managed to keep his own ogrishnicity and his party's filth under a thin wrap for quite a few years. An impressive record of deceit.

It has been my experience that Conservative party aparatchuks are less sober than most First Nations representatives.

In the 20 years I have been working in the Aboriginal community, I have, only once, been to a meeting where alcohol was served, and that was an economic development confernece where NKMIP winery from the Osoyoos Indian Band provided one bottle of wine per table of six people.

I have been to plenty of gatherings with non-Aboriginal Canadians of all political stripes in which an open bar, or a cash bar even, is the highlight of the night.

Sanctimonious crap disgusts me. They woman needs a thorough re-education and it could probably begin snd end with her own abstinance.
