Yes it does convey the message and it's a good one. Harper is a jack ass.
Pamela, good to know that. Thank you. He is a jackass alright.
The guy is in a nose dive, LD. He's running scared and having to repeat a story nobody believes must be wearing him down. I checked out a related story at National Post, the sort of thing that Tory sock puppets usually flood with comments. They simply weren't there. I think they can no longer bring themselves to read these stories that show their leader twisting in the wind.
Mound, thank you for your comment. As far as Harper is concerned he is in a mess that he can do nothing about it other than just keep lying.
