So it's a good thing, actually.
Why, after all this bad press, is Helena Guergis still in Cabinet? I’m starting to think that Prime Minister Stephen Harper has decided that her value as a distraction is greater than her cost as a liability. Afghan detainees? Seat redistribution? Who cares? The Guergis Circus is in town! And the Liberals are falling all over themselves to keep the show going – which keeps other more important issues out of question period, and off the front page.
Now the Liberals want an inquiry, paid for by the taxpayers, into how Ms. Guergis bought her house. Oh, ferfecksake!
This wouldn't be the first time Mr. Harper has turned the tables on the opposition; on this issue, they are now running like lemmings over the proverbial cliff. While Canadians may not care about Ms. Guergis' finances, they will care about spending taxpayers' money on what is fast becoming a witch-hunt. The Liberals should be careful how they play this story, or it's their own political capital they will end up spending.Let the Liberals carry on as such. Heh. Hosers 'n' losers!
Something's not right with the Liberal brain, obviously. They've pretty much lost it, lost their political smarts. They're toast from now on... toast!
Guess getting rid of Warren Kinsella and bringing in Peter Donolo didn't make one ounce of difference. They're still on the pot, waiting and hoping in vain... Ah, but Kinsella and Donolo are dinosaurs from the Chretien era. They're trying to operate as if it was still circa 1993-2005. Living in the past and denying the new realities of the world guarantees that that's where one will remain.
Doesn't matter who leads or who runs the propaganda ops. The Liberal Party as an institution is itself a dinosaur. It's also so corrupt and unpalatable for so many Canadians that unless it's completely overhauled from the constitutional grassroots on up, it might as well fold.
Liberalism is supposed to be about real libertarianism, about freedom, etc. But Liberals think that being "liberal" means being "progressive", which actually means neo-communist. And that's what Liberals are... neo-communists.
