As you know Maxime Bernier likes to portray himself as the hero of the Mad Max movies.
Or at least the extreme libertarian version of that series.
Where the lonesome hero wanders through an apocalyptic landscape dodging Big Government agents who are always trying to tax Canadians to death, or control their minds.
But I see Bernier as the star of a completely different movie.

Well Doug Ford has his bus, he's on the road, and he's now channelling Donald Trump, as only an ape could.
And vowing to go after Kathleen Wynne as Trump went after Hillary Clinton.
So don't be surprised if the mob he calls the "Ford Nation" starts chanting "lock her up, lock her up," at one of his bestial rallies.
But did you know that the ones who are giving him his Team Trump marching orders, are in many cases the former members of a another well known team.

Oh dear, poor Andrew Scheer has that desperate look on his face again. And no wonder, everything is going wrong.
Last night his "emergency pipeline debate" went nowhere, after all he could do was shout "Mr Trudeau build that pipeline!!!!"
Which seemed a bit ridiculous, considering the situation, especially since the Prime Minister is in Europe.
So most of the media didn't bother to cover it.
But if you thought that went badly, his attempt to use Trudeau's India visit to embarrass him, again, was even more of a fiasco.

I see that Doug Ford has unveiled his shiny new bus.
And a shiny new slogan: "For the People."
So he can ride in comfort all over Ontario, giving the people the thumb.
While giving the media the finger.
Because as you may know, he's not giving them a bus to follow him.
So it will be harder to ask Ford any embarrassing questions.
Like do you know what you are doing Meat Loaf?
Or are you making it up as you go along?

It was quite a performance by Donald Trump, one that no doubt made millions of people wonder they would survive him.
For first he went after the former FBI director James Comey, with an early morning tweet storm yesterday, that had to be seen to be believed.
After Comey in a new book made it clear what he thinks of Trump.
Ever since Justin Trudeau's trip to India was made to look like a disaster by the shabby stooges in the Con media, Andrew Scheer has gone crazy with Indian fever.
He's still trying to make the India story sound like it's the biggest story in Canada.
Even though it died of old age weeks ago...
But so desperate is Scheer to try to revive it, and get some of that poll boosting buzz back, he has been scouring every newspaper and supermarket tabloid in India hoping to find some evidence to use against the Prime Minister.
So you can imagine how horribly excited he must have been, when he thought he had caught Trudeau being humiliated by the Indian government.

During the last election campaign I used to have fun portraying Stephen Harper under assault by our superior social media.
And that superiority helped us bring down the Harper regime, by exposing their lies, helping to get out the vote, and by humiliating Great Closet Leader over and over again.
I loved it, there's nothing I like more than seeing bullies deflated.
But of course the Cons hated it, and vowed that they would never allow that to happen again.
And that this time THEY would be the Lords of Social Media.

It's a truly terrifying moment in human history. Donald Trump is vowing a massive missile strike on Syria.
And taunting the Russians.
While we wait to see whether Israel and Iran will declare war on each other and trigger an all out war in the Middle East. Or even the Third World War.
And to make matters worse, if that's possible, Trump has never sounded so crazy.
I know this may be hard to believe, but after attacking Stephen Harper almost every day for almost ten years, my memories of him and his grim decade of darkness had started to fade.
And I almost felt sorry for him.
After all I said to myself, he's not the Great Leader he once was. People change, time heals almost everything.
I even started to wonder whether I had been too hard on him. Can you believe that?
But then I saw this.

It's easy to forget that the Con leadership race that Andrew Scheer won, was tainted by widespread allegations of vote rigging and membership fraud.
And that even a few days before the final vote, Maxime Bernier was leading the other candidates, and Scheer wasn't even in contention.
But somehow he managed to cross the finishing line ahead of Bernier and his boys from the Beauce.
And now a bitter Bernier is claiming he knows exactly what happened.
