Horse and buggy

by Aaron Wherry

Liberals employ an antiquated form of transportation to make a point about something.

The Bureau Blog had to ask: “You’re standing in front of a horse and buggy with a big banner, and you’re saying you’re taking the high road?”

“Uh… yes we are,” Mr. Easter replied. “We’ve always taken the high road. We’re outlining the facts in terms of Stephen Harper and his word.”

Horse and buggy

  1. *cringe*

  2. It's a shame Warren couldn't have found a good mariachi band.

  3. You media. Always a bunch of neigh sayers.

    • They always trot out the same hackneyed stories too.

      • It might behoof them to change their mane focus a bit more, insteed of sticking to the same, stable things.

        • Well, they also want to avoid galloping off in all directions. At least, that's what I've herd.

          • So the choice is unbridled investigations, or being saddled with the same old thing? Mare'd.

          • You know how it is: into every campaign a little rein must fall.

  4. Not a great day for Mr. Easter. As he tweeted earlier:

    Darn. The speaker ruled against my emergency debate request on the hog crisis stating I should pursue the committee.

    Cheer up, Mr. Easter! At least you got a chance to take the high road by posing in front of a horse and buggy for one of Kinsella's wacky stunts. The day wasn't a total waste.

    • *contemplates images of Easter chasing the committee in a horse and buggy shouting something about a Giant Hog crisis…*

      Wow.

  8. Liberals are so UNCOOL. Give me that Tory chic any day!

  9. I would have responded to this by following behind the horse with a shovel in order to scoop up Liberal policy.

  10. Does this also imply that they'll be in Scotland afore ye?

    • Nope, I'm pretty sure it's the low road gets you to Scotland faster.

      • Hmm. Could be. Anyway it's interesting that the bonny bonny banks of Loch Lomond are such an issue for the Liberals in this election.

        • you mean the bonnie bonnie banks of Loch Lomand? and yes, interesting indeed.

          • I get the feeling I'm talking to a genuine Scottish lass here. I will therefore retreat to finish my Glenfiddich.

          • I get the feeling I'm talking to a genuine Scottish lass here. I will therefore retreat to finish my Glenfiddich. (but I think it is Lomond)

  11. Putting the horse before the cart.

  12. You don't need a shovel to scoop up Liberal policy. You need tweezers and a magnifying glass. There's just not that much of it to scoop.

  13. Into every campaign a little rein must fall.

  14. You know how it is, into every campaign a little rein must fall.

    • So long as everyone ponies up and does their bit, there's no doubt they can harness the essence of the foal election.

      • Sure, as long as their canter-do mentality doesn't rear it's ugly head.

        • I think that last one put you ahead by a nose. And I'm too weary to stallion for time and draught any more.

          • You whin.

        • I think that last one put you ahead by a nose. And I'm too weary to stallion for time and draught any further.

  15. L-a-m-e. Just like Easter's contributions to public life as an MP. Ask Maher Arar what Wayne Easter's word is good for. Wayne Easter couldn't find the high road with GPS and a guide.

  16. The Liberals are so UNCOOL. Lov e that Tory chic!

    • I'm beginning to understand how someone achieves a -32 rating. Up to now I thought ratings were meaningless.

      • Given that, I was more impressed when it was -51. Minus 32 tells me LoyalSubject isn't really trying anymore.

      • All the wingnuts here like you have high ratings, so frankly, the lower the better.

  17. Am I allowed to proclaim SS the undisputed champeen of Equine-related puns yet?

  18. Sure, as long as their can'ter-do mentality doesn't rear it's ugly head.

  19. Sure, as long as they're can'ter-do mentality doesn't rear it's ugly head.

  20. Liberals try to make a point, much BS ensues.

    Liberals shill for critical "my little pony" vote, unaware that show was canceled in 1987.

    Liberals book horse and buggy to evince nostalgia among Canadians for the days when Liberals were not a bunch of tools.

    Ignatieff decision to book horse and buggy reflects improvement in Liberal organization over Dion (who, if you recall, appears to have forgotten to book a plane in the 2008 election).

    Ignatieff underscores rhetoric about bringing Canada into new millenium with horse and buggy.

    • I disagree. My Little Pony is still running. It's been updated and modernized *cringe* Even the Care Bears are back. I heard something about the Smurfs recently too……..

  21. C'mon guys. Wayne has a working farm. He knows ya never, ever , stand behind the horse.

  22. I am crazy to collect antique buggy. thanks for sharing.
