Just To Get It Off The Table

I'm beginning to think Winnipeg may become the most hilarious city in Canada next week.

D'ya think they're worried that otherwise people might think they support it?

I wonder which slogan will work better for them.

Canada's Conservative Party - opposing polygamy since 2008

or

Canada's Conservative Party - we're only 118 years behind the Mormons in opposing polygamy.

Conservatives talking about fucking again. How novel.

I imagine they're just upset at the thought of some guys having two wives when Jason Kenney, Peter Mackay and John Baird can't even find one. Poor Petey has to hug the neighbour's dog and Johnny has to share Laureen Teskey with the PM.

It looks like the anti-polygamy measure was a compromise between the "we-hate-homos" wing of the CPC and the "gays-just-make-us-uncomfortable" wing.

Good god, I wish social conservatives would stop being so ridiculous.

Terrence, I thought there might be an anti-Muslim thing in there too, because of those recent stories in the TO newspapers (this summer I think it was).

BCL,

I'd look for it in the scratched out bits:

[strike]The Conservative Party believes Muslims are a menace.[/strike]

[strike]The Conservative Party believes some Muslims are a menace.[/strike]

The Conservative Party [strike]grudgingly[/strike] admits [strike]some[/strike] Muslims are human.

"upset at the thought of some guys having two wives when Jason Kenney, Peter Mackay and John Baird can't even find one"

Mr Baird is a self hating homosexual who'd sell out his own gay peers for another cheeseburger.

While it's certainly true he would (and has) sell us out for a cheeseburger (OK, a few dozen cheeseburgers), we don't actually know that he's self-hating.

Only that he should be.

"Ministers in a Conservative
Government will have authority and be accountable for the policies they implement"

Two brand new policies in one action-packed sentence!
