Yesterday it was revealed that not only is the process to select Contempt Party candidates rigorously controled by the ex-PMO politburo, but that candidates also have to post a $1000. *good behaviour*, held in trust until the next federal election. Yes, you read that correctly - until the next federal election. One wonders: did Contempt leader Harper have to post this bond too? Or does it suffice that his physician provided an affidavit that Stevie Peevie is taking his mood-control meds regularly? How about Rob Anders? I'd bet nobody made the guy Harper describes as "as a true reformer and a true conservative" post that bond. So ... is there also a detailed pledge of *good behaviour*, a legal document that candidates must sign when they hand over their $1000? What's in it? No adultery, no necrophilia, no cannibalism, church attendance every Sunday ... what exactly must candidates do, or avoid doing to get their bond money back? It sure would be fun to get a copy of that document. Just saying.
