In the 'you people have Harper Derangement Syndrome when you whine about seeing all those links between what his eponymous government does and the American Republican agendas' department, leave us never forget that this comedian is the same fellow as noted by the Harper Index and Desmogblog and Sourcewatch and this other place, called(coffcoff) Creekside.
I think the takeaway here is, Frank Luntz...
a/ is very aware of what he says in public and that what he said as a 'joke' has eliminationalist meaning, and that Mr. Frank was willing to go there.
b/ is very skilled at dogwhistling and damage control and continues to be welcomed to the podium to address Republican pols. Like, oh, state governors, so many of whom have been behaving...so vociferously and exclusionarily of late, bless their hearts. I'm sure the similiarity in reasons and tactics for dealing with the Occupy movement all over North America is a coincidence.
c/ has advice and influence still underpinning the Harper government six years after being famously linked to the Canadian Conservatives.
d/ has a dog in the Canadian fight via his corporate clientele, who aren't corporate citizens here. Yet.
While nosing about, I found this piece and thought it amusing even the marketing fanbois were smelling Luntz in the air behind the Conservative 'rebranding' of the last year.
But it's all HDS you know, which is nothing like Bush Derangement Syndrome. It's just independently evolved rebranding for 'are you gonna believe us or your lying eyes?'
