Alberta Ardvark has a great piece on scott beer and popcorn reid. This loser seems to in the media a lot lately. I guess he thinks we have forgotten his beer and popcorn and kill him dead comments.
Now he thinks we Tory bloggers are some paid cabal. This is truly amusing. First we have catsmeat saying we Tory bloggers don't donate to the party not we have beer and popcorn saying the party pays us. Like some over at Joanne's I also wonder if beer and popcorn is projecting. Do the grits pay its bloggers? That's hard to believe, as they have so little cash. We know that the grits do use staffers to write letters to the editor.
None of us is paid for our blogging, some of us can be quite critical of the party.
We blog to try and help move Canada more to the right. To help bring about smaller government, less taxes and more freedom. The party does appreciate us. HM PM Harper made these comments at the Winnipeg Convention in 2008.
I am a member of the Leader's Circle. That gives me special access at the keynote address last night. Today I got to have lunch with HM PM Harper and the other members of the Leader's Circle. HM PM Harper made some brief remarks and took some questions. I asked a question and identified myself as a Blogging Tory. HM PM said he wanted to thank the Blogging Tories for our blogs. He said that we helped to counter a media that is not very friendly to the party. He said we helped hold the media's feet to the fire and indeed we helped hold the party's feet to the fire. He gave us a lot of credit for levelling the playing field. he said the media was very aware of our criticisms.
Senator Finlay seems to have made similar comments at Alberta Aardvark's blog.
I think we should all know that we are doing a good job. We are getting under the skin of the grits.
