The Brilliant Mr. W.

Sums up not just the hapless PCs who lost the recent election in Ontario, but our national ruling "conservative" class as well. (And, for that matter, not a few Republican hopefuls south of the border...)
And the term I wish to advance for this purpose, from the urban dictionary, is "self-servatives." That is, politicos who are only interested in taxes and debt, and the most superficial questions of law and order.
Who, to succeed, think their task is to convince a plurality of the electorate that they will contrive to leave more money in their pockets, and perhaps put more thieves and muggers in jail.
Who consciously avoid "emotional" issues. Who, if they have any private opinion on questions like abortion, or public pornography, or eugenic technology, or euthanasia, or same-sexism, or speech codes, or dangerous immigration, or the integrity of families, or religious faith and public prayer, are careful to keep it to themselves.
Who talk in carefully-rehearsed sound bites. Who tweet and Facebook 20 hours a day.
Who compete with gliberals in celebrating our fake diversity, and flattering as many special interests as they can. Who flaunt their own pathetic claims to multiculturehood.
Who defend today, what they opposed yesterday, when it was still possible to oppose easily; and who adapt themselves to changing circumstances in the manner of the Vicar of Bray.
