Prime Minister Stephen Harper is in a pi**ing match with Newfoundland and Labrador Premier Danny Williams.
"You broke your promise," screams Williams.
"No, I didn't," retorts the Prime Minister.
"You're both wrong," replies the CTF.
Both have opted to use public money to wage their war of words. Never mind that either of these guys could simply talk to the many reporters that cover their every move.
Nope - not good enough. These guys have opted to take out full page newspaper and radio ads to make their arguments. These are partisan ads pure and simple and should be paid for by their respective parties. But party taps won't be touched for this one. These babies will be paid for by Mr. and Mrs. John Q Taxpayer.
But the Prime Minister exposes his Homer Simpson side when in today's Ottawa Citizen he justifies spending tax dollars because Mr. Williams financed his ads with provincial cash.
Two wrongs make a right - don't ya know?! Recall that Simpsons episodes where Homer says to Lisa - "Bart's right Lisa, two wrongs make a right." (paraphrase)
Well, Homer has been backed up by the Prime Minister of Canada. Recall yesterday's post on the same subject. I didn't actually think the Prime Minister Harper would use that logic. But he did!
As Forrest Gump would say, "That's all I have to say about that."
