Watching Harper and his tactics is like watching Kasparov at his best. Bringing back the sponsorship program, but running it cleanly and well and as it was originally intended, is a stroke of political genius. The program is much-needed, and it's existence perennially shines the ugly glow of scandal on the Liberals.
Brilliant.

Watching Harper act like a socialist is making me feel like I might lose my lunch.

As a socialist, I expect it is an act in order to secure a majority. Then he can do all those conservative things you want him to do. Or don't want.

Twelve voices were shouting in anger, and they were all alike. No question, now, what had happened to the faces of the pigs. The creatures outside looked from pig to man, and from man to pig, and from pig to man again; but already it was impossible to say which was which.

you summed it up. . . what the hell. . . .

Plus, I don't think Harper's advisers are giving very good advice here. The whole "December Speech" and Flexible federalism approach is supposed to replace junk like this.

The Grit-initiated sponsorship program was beyond terrible and beyond corrupt. . . . but, just like I always say with regional development agencies, there is no amount of tweaking or adjusting or reforming that will fix a fundamentally flawed and bad idea.
