Conservatives. Ah. Some of them never cease to amaze me. Take this guy for example. I guess, as one of those infidel atheists (or I.A’s, as we like to be called) I should thank him? But this is just so damned awkward. He clearly doesn’t quite know what to make of us.
Let see… “Infidel“…
a person who has no religion or whose religion is not that of the majority.
“a crusade against infidels and heretics”
synonyms: unbeliever, disbeliever, non-believer, heathen, pagan, idolater, idolatress, heretic, agnostic, atheist, non-theist, nihilist, apostate, freethinker, libertine, dissenter, nonconformist
Yeah, I guess that’s me.
And for the record, we I.A.’s don’t really “celebrate” anything specific over Christmas, but it’s a great time to get together with family and friends. (20)

… begets the season.
Lots of good things have been exported northward from our neighbours to the south. Black Friday ain’t one of them.
It’s such a transparent cash-grab but no one seems to care.

… on the the Harper Christmas card too.
But his boss said no (wait for it), one rodent is a enough.

Dear Straws: we are grasping at you.
“These latest allegations are troubling. Our Government does not condone illegal drug use, especially by elected officials while in office, including Justin Trudeau. We’ll continue to work with all levels of government on shared priorities, such as jobs and economic growth. That includes working with mayors and city councils, including the Mayor of Toronto and Toronto City Council,” MacDonald, Mr. Harper’s top spokesman, said in the statement.”
Seriously? You found a way to compare the actions of the Horror of Hogtown to JT?
Guess the staffers have checked out the polling on three of the four by elections and have seen that it ain’t looking too good.
thou hast shown many faces
so rage against all (30)

Thinking of my bro-in-law this afternoon as the polls close in about 5 hours across Quebec.
It’s municipal election time and Steve Shanahan will make a GREAT city Councillor! As well, Mélanie Joly will make an awesome Mayor!
What a nice change from old white guys that will be.
My wife just left Ottawa to join Steve and the team for what will sure-to-be a VICTORY party tonight. I wish I could be there with them but (sigh) have an early morning meeting that I couldn’t get out of….
Bonne chance!!! (26)

If you are approached by anyone resembling a reporter, blogger, Liberal, New Democrat, Green, environmentalist, Public Servant, First Nation member, telecom industry employee, scientist or Maude Barlow, please run away screaming, hands over ears, and yelling “LALALALALALA!” as loudly as possible. One of our keen, young comm staffers will intervene.

There needs to be a discussion on whether he should resign.
It’s that simple. (23)

…upon hearing of Alice Munro winning the Nobel Prize for Literature
Pauline Marois - “The Parti Québécois does not recognise this award because her writings are clearly counter to our Charter of Values. And I’m told that she doesn’t speak french”.
Stephen Harper – “Because of my extensive literary experience gained while writing my book – and thus created thousands of Canadian jobs in bookstores from coast to coast in this great conservative land, Ms. Munro has consulted me on several occasions to run ideas by me, or just to chat, brilliant author to brilliant author.”
John Baird – “Ms. Munro would have won this award years ago if it were not for Justin Trudeau and his plan to sell pot to Canadian children!”
Mike Duffy – “Hey! There’s a chunk of cash that goes with that, right? I wonder if she could float me a few thou’…”
Peter MacKay - “I will fly her to Sweden myself in one of those spiffy new fighter jets. Oh. Wait….”
Pierre Polievere – “This award is yet another example of the success of Canada’s Economic Action Plan, brought to you by Canada’s strong, stable Conservative government and our distinguished leader, Prime Minister Stephen Harper; who, incidentally I have heard will be on the Nobel short list next year.”
Vic Toews – “I knew about this long ago.”
Tim Hudak - “Alice who? Does her son play for the Leafs.”
Rob Ford – “There’s no video. How can I comment on something that doesn’t exist? You’re from the Star, aren’t you?” (40)
