Crikey! It’s the Harperites!

The Stephen Harper Party

It’s a shame really that more Canadians don’t visit the “Conservative” party website so they can witness for themselves what an asinine bunch of wankers the Conservative Party has become of late. Or more accurately it should be said, the STEPHEN HARPER Party, for as can be clearly seen from the graphics on their website and everything related to it, from stem to stern, this outfit now appears to be the sole proprietorship of its present leader. The word “Conservative” appears only as an incidental label in minuscule print.

In any case, as I said, more people should make of point of visiting the Harper Party website so they can take in the full measure of what a pathetic joke our “Tories” are these days. It’s somewhat difficult, for example, to take seriously a political party that suggests people join it just to “freak out” their ex-lovers, roommates, and so on. It’s also somewhat less than impressive to note that their “CPC Energy” website intended for “activists” and the “youth” of the movement, the one with the completely non-functional “C-Blog” and links to where you can buy “swag” (logo emblazoned, pins, toxic bisphenol-A water bottles, etc. — all made in China, I have little doubt), hasn’t been updated since December of last year… six months of total inactivity. The “Podcasting” and “Reality Check” sections are entirely blank. Yeah, that’s some real “energy” there, alright. Well, to be fair, maybe they were plumb tuckered out of imagination… after all, it’s pretty hard work Photoshopping the same picture of Stéphane Dion over and over and over and over and over and over again. I wonder what they’re paying in royalty fees for that lovely snap... Does anyone know who holds the copyright to it?
