POSTED RESPONSE TO AN ARTICLE BY MICHAEL WARREN IN TORONTO’S GLOBE AND MAIL

Sorry, this is a silly article.

No matter what the details Harper will use the shrill charge of “coalition.”

He has already started, actually.

Coalition shouldn’t be a charge, of course, for those who understand how parliaments and democracies work, but we are dealing with the nastiest bully in the schoolyard, and the head of the Liberal Party is as weak and ineffective an opponent as it would be possible to find.

A genuine leader in opposition should hurl the lies right back in Harper’s face, but our pathetic Ignatieff isn’t tough, and, surprisingly, he just isn’t as smart as the world used to credit him from books. He’s a weak voice in the wilderness.

Just look, Harper has already started bring in the Bloc and separatism into his stupid blubbering about coalitions.

A real opposition would put a right-back-in-your-teeth ad citing all the successful legislation and changes Harper has done with the help of the Bloc.

There are always enough stupid voters out there to be influenced by trash. Just look at Sarah Palin, a woman who should be a clerk at a WalMart, making millions out of suckers.

Or look at George Bush with his eight years of stupidity and gross lies.

Harper is the same kind of politician, the worst example perhaps we have ever had on the national scene. He’s introduced a kind of filthy, irrational politics we’ve not seen before.

You can’t fight that with truth or rationality, because there is only one truth for Harper: what can I do to throw some mud, wreck some gears, gain a few votes – doesn’t matter about the truth, just so it works.
