The creature that would not die!
The Senate expenses scandal is the Energizer bunny -- it keeps going and going. Its Parliament Hill rock 'n roll -- it will never die. Its a Canadian T-Bird -- we'll have fun, fun, fun until, well, until whenever. And for the Harper Cons, its the Creature from the Black Lagoon -- it just won't go away!
Today, we find out that the Senate's pledge to give RCMP e-mails widens paper trail in expenses probe and that Senator Carolyn Stewart Olsen apparently lied to the RCMP last June
Its all basically meaningless in the larger scheme of things, of course, but its very meaninglessness seems to be the reason why this story just won't quit.
When we've got a scandalous news story that isn't about anything that affects our daily lives -- like the economy, health care, or real estate -- then its just so much fun for the reporters to cover and for the people to read about, that nothing will stop it.
