Etiam pulvinar consectetur dolor sed malesuada. Ut convallis euismod dolor nec pretium. Nunc ut tristique massa.

Nam sodales mi vitae dolor ullamcorper et vulputate enim accumsan. Morbi orci magna, tincidunt vitae molestie nec, molestie at mi. Nulla nulla lorem, suscipit in posuere in, interdum non magna.

I see the only requirement to be a Harper Senator is blind loyalty to the King of Patronage.

Check out the interview that ex-hockey coach, current hockey analyst, and newly appointed Conservative Senator Jacques Demers gave to the Globe:

Mr. Demers… was a  well-known face among the new crop of senators. He said he will continue working as a hockey analyst and put his mind to his new job.

“I’ve just been named a senator here, and I’m going to have to start following [federal politics],” he said in an interview.

I’m not listing this to attack Jacques: I applaud him for his honesty about his not having followed federal politics up to this point.

It reflects worse on Harper for picking him then it does Jacques for saying that last line. Harper picked his Senators and appointed them to the Senate, and they are expected to vote for him and his bills in the Senate whether the person knows anything about politics or not.

All Hail The Canadian Patronage King!!!

All Hail The Canadian Patronage King!!!
