I've kept the NDP at arm's length all my life, a convenient place from which to observe their astonishingly convenient memories and full-bore, unrepentant hypocrisy. Hell you would think they were Reformatories in liberal clothing.
I nearly flipped my biscuits today when I read this agitprop bullshit warning Greens that they could be Harper's salvation, drawing just enough of the vote to let Beelzebub squeak back into power.
This coming from the party of Layton and Mulcair that has done more than any other to first help Harper ascend to power and then to deliver him his majority. This from the party that has completely abandoned the Left to become Latter Day Liberals for raw political opportunism, thus greatly assisting Harper achieve his fundamental goal to move Canada's political centre well and permanently to the Right. Hell, if they'd played their cards better I'll bet Harper would have found a way to put the lot of them on the Conservative Party payroll.
It's a giggle to see how the NDP and the Libs are getting all touchy-feeley greenish in the runup to the election. Sorry, buttwads, but you're a little late to the game to salvage any credibility on that front. You're still solidly behind the extraction and export of the filthiest, highest carbon petroleum on the planet. Oh yes, you'll raise the carbon levy. So what? Is that it, is that all you've got? And what happens when you change your mind as you have on one issue after another. That's a little better than the incoherent garbage coming out of the Libs but that only means you're just a little better than incoherent.
So spare me this agitprop bullshit and feeble guilt trip. It's good to see you haven't lost any of your real skills. As for this strategic voting business, have you ever heard the phrase "pound salt"?
