My fave bit:
But, given the Harper penchant for partisan guttersnipe politics, you can’t blame Canadians for just lumping the “cons” in with all the rest. And, come next election, I predict a trouncing of the CPC, where voters will pick the real deal ... the Liberal Party of Canada instead of the fake version, the Liberal Conservative Party of Canada led by Stephen Harper. All the Beatles’ tunes in the world aren’t going to save us; and lord help us if the LPC ever finds a leader with a pulse.
They're discussing it at Free Dominion and my Facebook friend Connie Fournier had this to contribute (emphasis mine, I couldn't resist):
I think they are going to lose next election, too. And it makes me really angry.
Instead of using the past four years to make worthwhle political change in this country, the Harper-led CPC has patted us on the head and told us to "wait for a majority".
Well, if we lose the next election, Stephen Harper will go down as the biggest loser in Canadian political history, and we will go down as the biggest suckers.
All of us worked our fingers to the bone for a chance to put someone in the PMO who would do politics differently. The grassroots were betrayed by a bunch of smug, condescending suits who thought that the game was more important than good governance.
If Stephen Harper loses this election, we will have gotten zero return for all of our work. And, if he has any grace at all, he'll go hide his head in shame.
Don't you just love the smell of imploding ReformaTories in the morning?
