Have you noticed a recurring pattern? Whenever the Conservatives, or their friendly sympathizers, get cornered, rather than just take responsibility, we get nonsensical talk about bias. You see it with media coverage, here we see it with "in and out", this sense that the world is out to get the poor Conservatives. Worse, it then morphs into some noble pursuit, fighting against an unyielding current in the name of moral authority.
The courts are deciding, yes those LIBERAL courts of course. The same courts that have gone after the sponsorhip Liberals but why challenge a delusional paranoia. Face it people, you got caught with your hands in the cookie jar and Elections Canada have rightly slapped you down. You turned the dispute into a dangerous questioning of Election Canada's credibility, all in the name of protecting your ass. So, it was up to the courts to decide, and when they ruled in your favour, no problem TRUMPETING the decision. But now, now that we see more charges, the courts sending a clear rebute? Oh, now it's back to this underlying bias that hunts Conservatives. Please. Worse, how many minions are so quick to adopt.
I'm happy to see some in the media drawing the unthinkable link, at least in terms of outrage- a comparison to the sponsorship scandal. How can Harper let these people sit in Parliament with these charges sitting there? How can Harper and company try to minimize what is a very simple, intentional SCAM? Rather than blame EC bias, the courts, the media, whatever gets you through the day, why not blame all those Conservative CANDIDATES, their STAFFERS, because it is your own words that have betrayed your rationalizations. Forget about all the dark forces gathering, just fixate on the Conservative family omissions, and you have you objective answers.
Not only should Canadians be outraged at what the Conservatives have done, we should demand a reimbursement for the amount Elections Canada has been forced to waste trying to argue the sky is blue. The Conservatives have misused the process, misused the courts, mistreated a internationally applauded entity like Elections Canada, not to mention constantly derailed our political process with this endless "in and out" rehash. That we also have to endure the inability to take any responsibility, well... WEAK!
