I got dumped on for pointing out Harper's arrogance!

Today he stated this " Martin is nothing!"

Plus he is now predicting a majority! Remind you of anyone? Stockwell day?

Keep it up Mr. Harper keep showing all Canadians the real Harper!

You do realize that the quote " Martin is nothing!" is not in the article you linked to.

No it is not I just heard him say that on T.V. as a matter of fact while I was typing my message.

Want to argue the point that he is predicting a majority?

Wasn't the full quote "Ricky Martin is nothing more than the devil's superstar?"

quote:
The Bible tells us that Lucifer was an angel of light. It was he that sat by God's side, and strummed a sacred guitar before legions of angels. It was he who was in charge of organizing Heaven's Hymnals. But he fell from Glory, and since that fateful day he has been nothing but a boil on the backside of every God fearing American Citizen in this country. As Christians we need to keep our eyes peeled open for the Devil's next move. He's a slick one, but for the Christ-centered man, he's easy to catch. Recently, Satan has begun to raise the stakes in the Holy Culture War in which we are currently engaged.

Is this from the Harper article or the Ricky Martin one? I can't tell.

Nope. Want to argue the fact that I predicted one earlier this week too?

Or "Kellie Martin is nothing like the not-quite-a-doctor she plays on NBC's ER this season"?

I suspect one could play this game for hours.

...or this tune, perhaps?

Got a devil's haircut in my mind
Got a devil's haircut in my mind

You know LTJ, until just this moment I'd never paid much attention to those lyrics. Distinctly odd.

What arrogance! Brutus, cannot find your thread but did find this on Canoe:

WINNIPEG (CP) - Jack Layton sharpened his focus Wednesday on the key role New Democrats could play in a minority government, pushing a new campaign theme that Canadians should give the left-wing party a "central role" in a split Parliament.

Buoyed by his boisterous performance in the televised debate the night before, Layton looked ahead to election results where the NDP could be a major player, either as a power-broker or in a strong opposition. While Layton declined to discuss which parties the NDP could work with in a minority situation, one of his MPs was less equivocal.

"I'd rather not breathe the same air as Tories, never mind support them in a government," said Pat Martin who is running for re-election in Winnipeg Centre.

"So I mean it would be virtually impossible for me, but I leave that to others, really. I just want to win this seat."

Layton ignored flat recent poll results for the NDP and maintained the party could still squeeze out a minority win.

"What I said was that we're looking for a central role. My preference would be to lead a government," Layton said.

"It could be an NDP minority government. That would allow us to enthusiastically pursue our ideas. Or it could be in a Parliament with a variety of parties who have to work together." ...

Layton promised to draw a clearer picture of the demands the NDP would make if it held a balance of power, but he dropped some hints Wednesday.

"Over the coming weeks, we'll talk a lot more about what we will be fighting for if Canadians give us that central role in Parliament, like Kyoto and protecting the environment, like keeping health care public, and non-profit," Layton told supporters at a packed breakfast rally in Ottawa.

Harper predicts Tory majority

By MARTIN O'HANLON

Harper asks Canadians for 'strong mandate'

(CP) -- Stephen Harper, bolstered by a solid debate performance and sounding very much like a front-runner, returned to the hustings Wednesday predicting a Conservative majority June 28.

I hate the possibility of him being right, though I know he isn't.

It will take the NDP government that replaces him after the trial 10 years to fix all the damage.

Poor conservatives. There's gonna be some long faces on election day. "Hey! What happened to our majority?"

Then the knives come out. creating outrageous expectations is a dangerous thing, especially with your crowd.

And that includes Quebec - Harpers said today.

Empiror Harper tells us he is wearing a cloak that says "Made in Quebec" but all I can see is his George Bush boxers.

I can just see the outrage when they don't get the majority.

"We paid good money for this! Where are the obedient sheeple we were promised?"

They may get a minority government, which won't last long. The loonies who seem to lack the capacity for complex thought would decide it was their opportunity to force through all their God-kissed ideas. Failing that, internal turmoil. 1 deficit and they fall apart.

Er, I don't see an actual quote by Ralph Klein in that article.

I think what is being referred to is Klein's announcement that he's going to introduce major changes to the Alberta health care system two days after the election.

Harper is probably thinking Peter your the nicest lap dog ever!

Even better than George Bush's lap dog Tony Blair!

Oh George is going to be so jealous when he sees my lap dog!
