Gloria Kovach" Come Hither and Huck Farper

Well after all the local Progressives and Red Tories were driven out of the local party by Gloria Kovach's Conservative coup in the name of the Bush-League leadership of micro-manager/control freak Stephen Harper, we get to look at a thumbnail campaign picture of Gloria on the cover on the Guelph Tribune every issue, in which she smiles seductively for the camera, hoping to lure unsuspecting voters into bed with the right, of which she is clearly begging to become the local pin-up. I call the picture her "Come Hither & Huck Farper" pose.
Gloria has a lovely smile, but it's kind of like seeing an iceberg, the bulk of which is concealed below water, the old mythological Siren hoping to shipwreck lost voters into thinking Farper is made of more substance than the hot air that rises around him from the manure heaps of reactionary diarrhea that fuel his political ideology and constitute the substance of his leadership.
Of course, Farper isn't actually Gloria's idea of a real leader anyway, Glori's idea of a real leader is Gloria.
As far as I'm concerned she can lead Guelph's well established reactionaries into the hell they chose for themselves following the second world war when old fascists like Guelph-born Ontario Premier George Drew kept the party out of federal office by the extremity of their fascination for imperial capitalism, now known as global corporatism, the most rapacious, small-minded, cold-hearted form of elitist politics the world has ever seen. Farper's oilogarch friends and security-force patriotism are diseases of the Canadian body politic that need to be lanced, and Gloria's "Come hither and Huck Farper with me" pose is but a foretaste of the screwing of the body politic that Canada's republicans will perform on us if we let ourselves be seduced by the smiles of Sirens.
