"Stay Tuned" - Indeed
"Can't talk ...can't speak freely ...stay tuned." All I'm getting out of Ottawa Tories is static. It's as though they're locked down. Nobody wants to talk Duffy or Wright much less Tkachuk, Stewart-Olsen or Harper himself. The whole PMO/Senate scandal seems to have become taboo, off limits, out of bounds, perhaps even a bit dangerous.
No e-mails, no phone calls, no nothin'.
You and me, outsiders, can only watch from the sidelines and pick up whatever scripted scraps fall from political talking heads and the national media.
Right now I think you would have to dangle a case of fine Scotch in front of an alcoholic Conservative to get anyone to talk.
Stay tuned indeed.
