Vic Toews Goes Permanent Prorogue

The Senior Conservative Member of Parliament in Manitoba is expected to be part of a cabinet shuffle this week.

It's expected Vic Toews will announce as early as today his departure from the Harper government for an opportunity outside of the federal government.

Well Damn.

PS. Don't Step on Vic Toews! In the updated story through the link above, Toews says he may be shuffled but isn't leaving parliament.

And from the Winnipeg Free Press:

OTTAWA -- Manitoba Senior Cabinet Minister Vic Toews' office is denying reports he is stepping down.

...but not that he's being shuffled.

But, on the other hand, a spokesperson for the Minister is now saying that "Rumours relating to a cabinet shuffle are just those, rumours."

Harper loses more "talent." What's he to do? Promote Bernier? Oh, Rob Anders needs a portfolio! Oh, please, give him something.

OTOH, Shelly Glover knows how to (poorly) attack dog -- and chase frogs. Give her something.

How about this unfortunate quote:

"I serve at the pleasure of the prime minister."

Is that what MPs do now?

That means he wears kneepads while serving.

Dunno about that. Seems to me that Harper would get off on the pain.

Someone's been watching too much The West Wing. American officials who say that are appointed, not elected.

O God! Please, Mr. Harper. PLEASE promote Anders to cabinet! That would be the bee's knees!

Imagine the fun Anders would have with a portfolio! And imagine the pain it woul bring the Cons!

Oh, glory day should such a scenerio occur! Like Christmas, Halloween, Kwanza and all other joys in life rolled into one orgasmic experience of bliss.
