What Do the Tories Know That We Don't? Ask Mulroney
Is the Pope Catholic? Is Brian Mulroney a Tory? Yes to the first, depends who you ask to the second.
The Conservative Television Network reports there's some disagreement between Conservative 'sources' and Mulroney as to whether Lyin' Brian is still a Tory.
Senior Conservatives contacted select reporters Tuesday to tell them Mulroney had effectively torn up his party card.
"I can confirm he is no longer a member," said one Conservative source.
Mulroney briskly fired off an unequivocal statement through his public relations team.
"I remain a member of the Conservative Party and I will remain so until the day I die," Mulroney said.
The bizarre dispute over Mulroney's party membership is a sign of just how bilious the relationship between the Harper government and Mulroney has become.
Makes you wonder whether the Harpies have sized up what's coming at the Oliphant inquiry and figure it'd be a good idea to try to distance the CPC from the former Tory PM.
