…it's their fault he beats us!
The time has come to cool the fury in Parliament, to ease the pressure on Martin to resort to seedy vote buying, and to let him deliver on his many promises, including ethical promises.It's the Conservatives' fault that the Liberals are corrupt!
And while Martin's manoeuvring to retain power wasn't a pretty sight, it was Harper who triggered the unsavoury bidding war. He pushed for a non-confidence vote the moment his party edged up in the polls. And he rejected Martin's offer to buy peace in Parliament by promising an election once Gomery reports.Cleanse your mind — don't buy Party organs.
HT: Andrew Coyne — this guy should get the Order of Canada.
Update: Tim Murphy, Paul Martin's chief of facilitating seedy vote buying, apparently wants to sue Andrew Coyne and the National Post for printing transcripts of the taped conversation in which he was attempting to bribe Conservative MP Gurmalt Grewal, according to Mike Duffy as reported by Raging Ranter: "My criminal behaviour is my own personal, private business."
Update 2: Yes, I know, ""the National Post is a BLUE-LIBERAL *rag*." But I need my non-Asper editorial fix, you know? But for the last word, the Last Amazon sends editorial boards to the corner without any supper here…
