Vanity Videos and the Morphing of the Tories

Mister 100 Percent Satisified
Move aside, YouTube: here come the new, improved Harper Tories’ Vanity Videos, made especially for every Canadian voter:

Employment Minister Pierre Poilievre won't apologize for using taxpayer dollars to produce YouTube videos of himself promoting the universal child care benefit.
Poilievre insisted Friday that he's simply using innovative ways to inform Canadians about the newly enriched and expanded child benefit.
But opposition MPs denounced the "vanity videos" as a new low for a government that has a penchant for producing partisan advertising on the public dime.
And the Canadian Taxpayers Federation agreed.

The Cat has been given a brown envelope by the Cat's informant, Deep Throat, with the Conservative speaking points for next week’s Question Period. They explain that the Vanity Vidoes are in the interests of one hundred percent of Canadians, and not just the 30% or so who vote for the Tories, because they are an “innovative Action Plan” that shows exactly how the Conservative Government is listening to Canadians, and doing its best to transform itself into what Canadians expect.
Deep Throat

At the same time, a new Vanity Video will be shown on YouTube that shows the Prime Minister morphing into Prancing Pierre, and then into Tango Tom, and finally into Heidi Klum.
The speaking points explain, in capital letters, that YOUR GOVERNMENT EXPECTS THAT EVERY CANADIAN NOT INFLUENCED BY THE TAX AND SPEND OPPOSITION WILL WELCOME THIS TRANSFORMATION OF CANADA’S GOVERNMENT INTO SOMETHING EVERYONE CAN ENJOY.

Here are some stills from the Vanity Video to accompany the above Talking Points memo (the morphing takes place from top left to top right, then on to bottom left and ends at bottom right image):



There you have it. Yet another scoop from the Cat’s Deep Throat.

  1. I'm surprised that Skippy didn't claim that 'hundreds of millions of families' had already watched his little vanity special.

    Just another garden variety, career politician that the Reform/Alliance/Conservatives used to hold in utter contempt. But that was then and this is now. Riiiiight.
