Position Seven, Mister Slave

Petting and slapping at the same time, Prime Minister Harper practices his own peculiar brand of S&M politics.

From the press release announcing the dumping (but only temporarily -- really) of the government's own vetting process for Supreme Court Justices:
The Prime Minister personally consulted with the new Leader of the Opposition prior to making Justice Cromwell’s appointment official. The Official Opposition has informed the Government that it welcomes Justice Cromwell’s appointment.
From the press release announcing that the Puffster has gone to heaven:
"If Senate vacancies are to be filled … they should be filled by the government that Canadians elected rather than by a coalition that no one voted for."
Both press releases were sent out today.
