Well I doubt we'll be getting rid of "da bum" anytime soon. But the article is right, it does show that this isn't new for Harper, and certainly does reflect the attitudes and classless attempts at vilifying their opponents. Sure, not all parties are guiltless (kinda like here...), but the cons have crossed the line more than once, and this sort of mean spirited classless attack style of politic is getting really old.
I wonder what sort of response we'll see regarding the hurled insult, just like the one hurled at Paul Martin. It could show Harper etc., just hasn't leaned and we''ll continue to see this.
Harper had Towes bark the divide and concur edict this time, last time, Northern Gateway and the time before Attawapisak it was OLG at the lead.
Our Glorious Leader, would be a mean spirited petty despot, if it weren't for the safeguards built into our democracy, so that just leaves mean spirited and petty,which seems to ingratiate him to his disciples.
