… get set… GO!
And just like that, ladies and gents, we’re on our way to the polls again. HMPM Harper has finally decided that he’s sick and tired of the Librano$’s bullshit and it’s time for them to get hauled on the carpet, in front of US, to explain just what the hell they think they’ve been doing for the past (how many now?) months.
Not that this came as a surprise to anybody who hasn’t been in a coma for the last few weeks, but the final word came down this morning:
It’s official â€” Canadians will go to the polls Oct. 14.
Prime Minister Stephen Harper wasted no time taking shots at Liberal Leader Stephane Dion as he kicked off a federal election campaign with an early-morning visit to Gov.-Gen. Michaelle Jean.
Harper warned Canadians they should not take a “gamble” on Dion’s proposed carbon tax.
“Between now and Oct. 14, Canadians will choose a government to look out for their interests at a time of global economic trouble,” Harper told reporters from the sprawling grounds of Rideau Hall. “They will choose between direction or uncertainty; between common sense or risky experiments; between steadiness or recklessness.”
Not a bad opening salvo, IMHO. Better than li’l Steffy managed. As you can imagine, the HypoGrits still haven’t managed to change the playbook from the last two elections (you know, the whole “he’s got an ideology” thing):
“With this conservative ideology, Canadians are left to fend for themselves.”
Dion said a Liberal government would make Canada “richer, fairer and greener.”
Hey, Steffy, I got a news flash for ya: politics is all about ideologies!
But then, I can see how hard that might be for a Liebral to figure out. After all, in order to understand ideologies, you need… ahem… IDEAS. And it’s not like little Steph has any of those.
Oops, I forgot. 😯 He does have an idea…
Ah, campaigning on a new tax-grab platform.Â What a genius, eh? [Oh, before I forget: about that little “left to fend for themselves” bullshit… why is it that so many studies have proven that those mean, nasty, social-darwinism-loving conservatives are consistently more giving than the oh-so-sweet liberals?Â Just wondering, ya understand.]
I know I’ve been a Bad Blogger lately, not posting much and such, but now that I’ve got something to sink my teeth into, look for that to change…
