  • I wonder if Stephan Harper will let Peter Newman record a bunch of conversations? Sadly even if that was the case I fear that Harper is too bland to equal Mulroney in terms of verbal gifts to politics.

  • At least the old one wasn't too busy to run in elections.

  • Harper believes Liberal ways are best

    Mr. Harper had two options this week to ensure that the Conservative party could win a majority in the next election.

    1) Follow in the foot steps of the Liberal party – appoint friends to Senate, bribe other party members with pay raises and power. The brain trust around Harper saw that people in ridings don't vote for your policies but to get local power. Thus appoint someone from Montreal and Vancouver to gain votes in next election.

    2) Harper could have decided that people will be impressed when they see him bring in real policies that help them. Forget the political games – live up to your promises and people will respect that. People will vote because they realize that the new Government is not scary, is accountable and functions differently than the Liberal party.

    The brain trust around Harper, including Harper, decided Liberal political games are the way to win votes – not policies.

  • Nice one Bart, but Bryce didn't actually spend any time as Public Works minister, as hard as tat is to believe. He did, however, do some serious heavy lifting as Postmaster General and Minister without Portfolio, two underappreciated cabinet posts from the past.

  • Bart's point being what, exactly, by this post?

    Why is is, all of a sudden, that folks are going insinuatingly cute?

  • Bart, my funny bone tingled...

    BUT...

    The real laugh with the Fortier appointment (BTW, is his golden parachute already in place???) is that after Ogilvy Renault picked up millions from Muldoon's deft payback on Chrtien in getting Martin to appoint the superannuated pater of one of his own stable of crocs--ie. John Gomery, who then dutifully appointed Muldoon's former patronage chief Bernie Roy--as head of the adscam investigative commission, Ogilvy Renault gets to choose one of its own as Public Works minister.

    What's so funny about Bart's little pic puzzle is that the "old whore" quote re: Bryce were of course Muldoon's own well chosen bon mots.

    ...and we all know l'il Stevie has been takin advice from Muldoon since the Alliance PC merger.

    ...so now we can look forward to Muldoon types doing all the pork dispensing with Ogilvy Renault picking up a lotta contract work on da side!
