Oink, Oink, Oink: Cons are entitled to their entitlements!

Prime Minister Stephen Harper walks away following a television interview with Mike Duffy in Ottawa in February 2007.

At the rate it's going, the Contempt Party may soon set a record for the most patronage appointments ever produced by a leader who once railed at, and denounced the practice.

Con-gratulations, Stevie! Long live irony and reformaTory greediness.

The Sixth Estate has been valiantly trying to keep up with Stevie's largesse with the public purse.

The most recent rash of appointments is intended to keep defeated Con candidates well fatted and to reward the party faithful who expect and hope one day they'll be snuffling in the trough alongside Larry Smith and Josée Verner.

great photo choice. Still 2 shopping days 'till christmas, plenty of time for a few dozen more appointment gifts.

This most recent group of appointments may be a Christmas gift to the party, or it may be part of a trend. Since May, the proportion of party faithful contained within each list of new appointments in the Gazette has been creeping upwards.

Naturally I'm disappointed that the Grope & Flail seems unaware of my list, but I'm grateful for the recognition from you. :-)

Holy maternal health initiative! Where do you find those photos??? Despite their endless disapproving yapping while in opposition, Conservative snout's hone in on the trough in a spectacular manner when the electorate (dumbly) give them the keys to the vault.

Sometimes the internet is like one great big beach at low tide - you can find the darndest things on it if you just keep looking.
