When the Politburo frowns

CNEWS reports that the PMO is extremely disappointed that federal funds went to a theatre festival that will stage a play, the subject of which they disagree with.

Mulcair looked good enough for me, with some of the best lines about Harper's Government during most of his interviews, except that he would always add the phrase, "just like the liberals" to the end of it and I thought, if I'm one of those Harper hating, Liberal voters that you probably need to vote for you, why the hell are you insulting me with this partisan bullshit.
