Please watch this nightmarish video of Sarah Palin being interviewed by Katie Couric.
In fairness to the DOS-based Palinbot, there is no actual answer to Couric's question. McCain has been a shameless deregulator his whole career. But we'll eagerly wait for the hockey mom to research even one single example of McOld's "maverickness". Good grief.
Who are these people anyway? According to Harper, "ordinary" Canadians don't really care about arts and culture.
Harper dismissed mounting criticism of the cuts by calling it a "niche" issue that doesn't resonate with "ordinary" Canadians.
In his strongest statements to date over the cuts, Harper said regular Canadians see a "bunch of people, you know, at a rich gala all subsidized by taxpayers claiming their subsidies aren't high enough, when they know those subsidies have actually gone up."
In a response, Justin Trudeau pointed out that the average salary in the arts industry is $23,000. Rich gala elites indeed.
“That's who we're listening to, not people who work in ivory towers but people who actually work on the street and deal with crime on a day-to-day basis.”
Of course, those same people who "work on the street" also support the gun registry and the InSite clean needle program. But those folks are probably just closet ivory tower millionaires, so fuck them.
Stephen Harper: getting things done for Canadians, one culture war at a time.
