The Shoe Store Project

It’s fascinating that the same government that cannot afford the court-challenges program is able to sink all kinds of money into some kind of government-controlled press-briefing room.

Between control the press and having a panel of people who already agree with him decide on Afghanistan, it once again shows that Harper cannot handle any kind of conflict. One can imagine that kind of press room Harper would create. It would be filled with National Post reporters asking softball questions to Harper and his sock-puppet ministers.

In a weird way though this is a reason to hope that the government falls after this upcoming throne speech. On the campaign trail it is that much more difficult to control the message. The longer that Harper is ensconced in the Langevin Block, the more he will be able to create his propaganda machine. Once this machine is established, it is unlikely that any subsequent government of any stripe will dismantle it.
