Wow, talk about rats abandoning a sinking ship.

First Dean Del Mastro, then John Baird, then Peter MacKay, then James Moore, then Dean Del Mastro again.

Well, the departure of the Deaner, Harper’s one-time point person on elections ethics, doesn’t really count as jumping ship. After all, he resigned in order to keep his gold-plated MP’s pension. And he still hopes to throw off the shackles and appeal his sentence for electoral fraud.

Like with the scramble to get out of Saigon, some do the grab-and-take, while others make sure to leave a “gift” for the future.

Peter MacKay is leaving “gifts” – in the form of reams of whacky judicial appointments, in his last days as justice minister, which ensure that our courts are chock full of Tory toadies.

Stay tuned for more looting and pillaging from the Tories as the clock counts down on their long, long reign.
