Whooee! Well friends an' foes, I reckon ol' Stevie Harpoon done dropped his spear an' stabbed hisself in the foot on his very firstest day as Pryminister o' Canadee. Shee-it!
I thought I heard the HarpoonTosser say accountability was gonna be top priority when the he moved inta the driver's seat. Turns out he was only foolin'. Where's the accountability fer Michael Fortier? Nobuddy elected Fortier as dog-catcher or anything else but Harpoon went an' appointed the CPC campaign backroom boy t' the Retirement Home fer Friends o' Pryministers, the Senate o' Canadee. Harpoon was all against appointin' Senators an' greasy backroom wheelie-deals when he was on the outside throwin' stones at Fartin' Martin. Now, he's makin' unelected CPC bigwigs cabinet ministers an' he's doin' it by appointin' 'em t' the ding-dong senate.
Canadee's electoral system ain't perfect, by a long stretch, but one thing we oughta have goin' fer us is knowin' we gotta sum say at the ballot box. Fortier jest got hisself inta a powerful cabinet post without campaignin' an' without a single Canajun castin' a vote fer his sorryass. I sez it makes ol' JimBobby's blood boil when I see Harpoon actin' all dictator-like. Yeow!
An' what about this here David Emerson bullshit? Crimony sakes, the numbnuts was elected by dumbass Liberal voters t' represent 'em. Now, he's turned inta sumpin' he was all against an' the pore Vancouver voters is s'posed t' set there an' take it on the chin. I'm wonderin' sumpin' I heard sum other fellers wonderin' 'bout. When, exactly, did Harpoon an' Emerson start talkin' turkey? Was the treachery happenin' before the election? Was there a firm offer t' Emerson of a cabinet post if he danced across the floor? Did he act on principles or is he an opportunistic whore? Did anybuddy make a secret recordin' o' the negotiations? If he ain't gonna represent them that voted fer 'im, who is he accountable to?
Last time I posted up a boog story, I sed I was gonna wait fer sum dust t' settle before makin' any judgments on the HarpoonTossers. Well, sum dust has cleared an' the new guys is lookin' a lot like the old guys - jest not as experienced. Give 'em time. Reminds me o' ol' Georgie Orwell's Animal Farm story where they end up not bein' able t' tell the difference 'tween pigs an' people.
