Your free ride is about to...continue!

Yeah, I'm probably one of the few Liberals out there who didn't think there was anything in Flaherty's budget to frame an election around. But this is still pretty funny:



Hat Tip - Red Tory

  • It is still very strange to see the Liberal Party of Canada appearing so weak and unable to fight the Conservative Party.

  • ROFLMAO!

    Gotta love RM - he's an equal opportunity ass-kicker. :)

    I'll be touching on this after this little provincial ruckus we've got going on back here in the "old country", CG. Thanks for the laugh!

  • Mercer didn't have to bust his brain to come up with this.

    The Dion-led Liberals are close to self-parody.

  • That was painful to watch because it rings so true.

  • Something a little less funny.

    Chantal Hebert of the Toronto Star and Josee Legault of the Montreal Gazette both hint broadly of staged coups to replace Stephane Dion in their respective columns today.

  • What's up with having some MP's vote against it and some staying home? I'm getting tired of this bullshit. Go vote for it or against it. They're playing right into the "weak leadership" accusations of the other parties and their digging themselves deeper every time they abstain.

    They should just vote what they think is right and if it causes an election so what. This "we'll choose the time" strategy is stupid.

    Sorry.. i'm a little frustrated.

  • I don't mind being laughed at...self-parody is quite humourous
    Of course I have never had the whole country laughing at me!!!
    Kudos to you Calgary Grit for appreciating the parody's humour.
    As a Conservative I laugh harder than most...it did hurt when on the receiving end

  • Funny isn't it - Liberals can laugh at themselves and the CPC honour anything Mercer does regarding Dion BUT when Mercer does his rants and stuff against the CPC - they cry Liberal bias on Mercer's part.

  • I was wondering how long it would take for someone to turn this into a negative to the Conservatives....well done Anon 1:08! keep up the good work.

    I'm just impressed the blogs aren't all being spammed by Liberals saying its all the NDP's fault for not supporting the Liberal ammendment denouncing the 'NDP like tendencies of the Conservative budgets'. If thats not bridgebuilding then what is? Still it would have been a typical reaction not that long ago. Anyways, its good to see some Liberals are growing up and seeing their party for what it is, kudos to Mercer for helping with the tonic of humour. Its an important first step, good luck with the difficult road to recovery.

  • Challenge for Mercer . .

    Make a funny skit out of this.

    Cadman overheard something about a possible insurance policy for him if he were to side with the CPC.

    Could be that some suggested a Million$ insurance policy is what he deserved.

    That is heresay and the fact that it is illegal and impossible for an insurer to issue such a policy when the beneficiary is known to be in final cancer stages suggests it is in fact loose talk.

    Just heard Cadman*s daughter say on CBC that she has no idea of where this came from or how it came about.

    First the Dion ding-dongs use the words of known liar Karl Schreiber to smear Harper through ex-PM Mulroney, and now this.

    Time to tell Dion*s gang to stop using the house and our money for Harper dirt witch hunts. = TG

  • There's clearly an edge to this skit.

    Rick Mercer, Liberal party apologist, is clearly peeved at his political masters, the Liberal Party of Canada.

    A sign of a restless base?

    That's only funny if you're a Liberal. Most conservatives would like to keep him around forever.

  • “That is heresay”

    The problem is the harper tape. He is on record saying that official representative of the CPC made a financial offer, and with his permission.

    To date, there has been no denial by harper of the issues raised by the tape. Instead, the CPC has pointed to Cadman’s denial in two interviews. This is not an acceptable substitute for a categorical denial by harper.

    To any experienced policeman, harper and his associates are guilty of something. I would want Chretien to be investigated if he was in the same position.

    BTW, what’s wrong with the Mulroney inquiry? This is a guy who accepted cash in a hotel room, kept it in a safe box, and didn’t account for the money. Sounds like a typical crooked deal.
