He hasn't been in the House of Commons for the past couple of days so I was just wondering what is going on with him.

Maybe he had heard about the Strategic Counsel poll which came out tonite showing disasterous results for his Conservative party, now a distant 13% behind the Liberals, and perhaps he went into hiding.

Why were the Conservatives so stupid when they chose their leader? If they had chosen Stronach they may well have been leading in the polls right now. Look at the nitemare that has happened to them under Harper. If this keeps up they won't even be the official opposition after the votes are counted in the next election.

I'm doubtful that Stronach could have done better as Conservative leader. Maybe anyone would have had a tough time leading that awkward Frankenstein's monster of a party. Stronach has shown some brains and some principles by bailing out on it, but I'm not sure she would have had the organizational abilities to steer the Tories in a more sensible direction, or the rhetorical abilities to convince more Canadians to support them. (This isn't intended as a barb at Stronach in particular -- Harper evidently doesn't have those abilities either.)

It's not a good sign for the Tories that Mackay is being mentioned as someone who could improve on their fortunes as leader. To paraphrase Brecht, pity the party to whom Peter Mackay seems like a saviour.

What the Conservatives need is a new Mulroney. By that I mean someone with his qualities and abilities, but without his reputation and track record.

If they would have chosen Belinda they would be doing alot worse. She can not speak French which would not help. Though I wonder how you call a nightmare to gain seats. I mean it seems we are going nowhere with Jack as our Leader.

I'd say the number of Reformatory trolls skulking around here seem to indicate a certain heightened sense of panic in their ranks, wouldn't you RB?

Thank you, Albireo, for finding a double-meaning there, because I was completely stumped.

Much like Peter's pumped kin.

If they have oral sex too, would that make him Peter, Peter, pumped-kin eater?

We already know he had a "wife" and couldn't keep her.

Maybe he didn't get the memo telling him that the Martha Stewart welcoming party had been called off.

I was thinking more of Cinderella's stagecoach, perhaps with the Mackay's driverless CPC turning into a seatless (seedless?) pumpkin at the stroke of midnight on election day. Mostly though, I wanted to see where my sillyness led others.

Now, now. That event takes place in a riding Peter doesn't dare show his face in. It belongs to that gay cheerleader she left him for while he was playing football.

He's back on the farm, crying about the latest poll numbers. Maybe he's morosely playing fetch with old Spot. "Nobody loves me," quoth he.

Or who knows? Maybe he's rejoicing because crap numbers mean he has a chance of becoming leader... although in my opinion he has even LESS charisma than Harper, plus the baggage of lying to Orchard at the convention a while back.

The best part about that convention back stab was Peter's campaign theme song was "Don't Stop Believing" by Journey.

Quel Ironic and stuff.

No one has less charmisma than Harper.

When he has sex with his wife her vibrator gets upset that it's being replaced with an inanimate object.

When someone called him "dull as dishwater" the makers of Palmolive liquid sued for libel.

Reality, your attention is needed back at CPC Corruption.

There you will find the answer to what the 'Maikeru' manipulator was trying to feed from his 'natural prejudice' party!

My mistake.

Reality Bites, your attention is directed back to 'Can the CPC be reformed, or better, another Centrist Party!

There you will find the cow pucks that 'Maikeru' was trying to feed the rest of us!

And what's all the fuss about this same sex stuff? Stephen Harper is a strong supporter of that: he and his wife have beeen having the same sex each year. The guy is really into annual sex.
