I don't really like to post rumours, and besides, who cares? Our only question might be, what took her so long?
According to blogger Old Man's Porch:
... a politically connected friend of mine mentioned some apparently very well known local gossip that completely blew my mind. According to him, it is well established throughout the political community that Stephen Harper is completely separated from his equally dead-eyed wife Laureen (remember I tweeted about her being sad and dead eyed at the olympics? MAYBE it was because she’s living out a sad pathetic lie under the watchful eyes of her very impressionable children!!!!).What is giving the story a bit of credibility are a number of disappearing headlines, that cross our monitors like blips on a radar screen. A fire on the lawn of 24 Sussex Drive ... a break in ... a home invasion. These stories disappear from sight as quickly as they appear, making some wonder if they were going to be the explanations for her departure. The place was no longer safe.
However, there is another disappearing story that is far more alarming. Harper's handpicked new RCMP boss announced a new threat to national security. RCMP warn against threat of coup d’etat. “activities aimed at overthrowing, by violence, the Government of Canada.”
Did the PMO hope to rile their base, as they did when the 2008 coalition, copied from Harper's 2004 coalition, was formed? Do they really expect us to believe that the opposition are planning a violent overthrow of the Harper government?
That's just plain nuts.
But he's run out of prorogations. He wouldn't dare try that again. And we know that power is everything to him, and if he feels that he's losing his grip on it, anything is possible.
I keep going back to his personal photo gallery. If you walked into some one's home or office, and found every square inch of wall space covered with photos of themselves, would you not be a little frightened? On crime dramas, we see this when the story line is of a stalker. But he is stalking himself.
I think he may be a little nuts.
The coup d’etat may have referred to an incident when Pearson was in power. But this was the first time it was mentioned on an RCMP report. And I still think Harper may be a little nuts.
