Explain to me again...

... why it's the CONSERVATIVES who have the reputation for fiscal prudence?
Federal government runs $517M deficit in April, May

Ad budget doubles under Harper

US deficit zooming to half-trillion as Bush leaves

Sigh. And guess who's always left to clean up the mess?


  1. The federal cons aren't conservative. They're liberals.

  2. Yeah, and the pope is actually a Unitarian.

    Runesmith: careful, careful image management and talking point control, that's how. I imagine it also has something to do with the belief that rich white men know something about handling money--and if anything describes a Tory on either side of the Atlantic it's that--but a lot of it is deliberate.
