Harper's words slither when they pass 



Trudeau was asking questions today about why the Harper Cons spent $2.5 million on advertising for JobScam, the job program that never existed.  Harper's response sounded pretty spacey:
..the Liberal leader had simply refused to acknowledge one important element of the Canada Job Grant: the basic notion’s ability to cheer people up.
“Mr. Speaker, I noted that the Canada Job Grant was in fact very well received by those in the marketplace,” Mr. Harper enthused, “by people who want to upgrade their skills, want to receive more training, want to gain jobs and, by pluralism, want to create jobs.”  . . . a bit like the film industry deciding to promote movies that have not yet been financed or cast.
As Dave writes:
Well, that just makes you all squishy thinking about all those happy people dreaming about the imaginary jobs they're going to get when the Harper government finally gets off their collective asses and actually negotiates a deal with the people who will be providing the access to training. Someday. Maybe. Would you like a sparkle pony with that elephant turd pie?
And Montreal Simon continues
Canadians were GRATEFUL to pay millions of their hard earned tax dollars to make it look like he was creating jobs when he wasn't?
Huh?
... OMG. Has the mad emperor no trappings of decency?
Or has our mad Moses lost his marbles?
No, actually, I think he's just listening a little too much to the Beatles lately.  He and the rest of the Harper Cons make about this much sense...
Words are flowing out like
endless rain into a paper cup
They slither while they pass
They slip away across the universe
...
Thoughts meander like a
restless wind inside a letter box
They tumble blindly as
they make their way across the universe

I must confess that when I saw a reference to Harper's words slithering, I assumed it was because they were the words of a lying snake in the grass. No offence meant to genuine rather than metaphorical ophidians . . .
