Timing Is Everything

Like Ralph Klein, Stephen Harper seems to think that the best time to do things is when Parliament isn't sitting.

This week's examples: Appointing a new commissioner to the RCMP, and
Announcing capital spending

CTV has an even better summary of HarperCreep's behaviour during the summer recess.

(Say ... What's he going to wear to Stampede this year?)

Of course, we can hardly blame PMSH, can we. Every time he opens his yap in Parliament he shows us exactly what kind of arrogant, partisan "leader" he really is. While Parliament is sitting, his polling numbers sink steadily...why? Because in Parliament he has to speak. Of course, in his amazingly tactless way, he comes out with such gems as this:

But "not all the money went to this ungrateful NDP government in this province," he said. "In fact, for every dollar that went to them, about $2 or $3 went to the people of Saskatchewan.

What a way to win friends and influence people.

If Parliament's not sitting, he can make all the appointments and announcements he wants, without having to actually be accountable to the public.
