Even a stopped clock is right twice in a day

Stephen Harper’s decision to do a 2nd prorogue in just over a year even got Connie Fournier of the ultra-rightwing site Free Dominion upset enough to say this:

I don’t care what anyone says, repeated prorogation of Parliament, as a political strategy, is an affront to democracy.

This guy is mad with power!

That’s more objective and critical of Harper then I’d bet 99.9% of the Blogging Tory aggregate, which Free Dominion isn’t even a member of. I don’t know if Connie just pulled a radical conversion (as Little Green Footballs in the US recently did) or if this is just a 1 day thing, but credit where it’s due.

    “The government will prorogue the House so that it will not be held accountable for its shameful record,” Mr. Harper thundered.

    Harper – when Chretien prorogued in 2003.

    Double standard.

    Harper – doesn’t mean what he says and doesn’t say what he means.

    The Liberal senate should recognise that the Liberals no longer dominate.

    That’s what I thought as well, credit where it’s due. I think we all can all now come to the conclusion Harper wants a War Economy ala the U.S. which is a direct attack on the Canadian public. He’s using this prorogue to blind the majority (who don’t seem to care) as a perfect decoy for the military industrial complex and his own ambitions, which go together. *spit*
    Happy New Year Canada!
