What does it take to get fired by Stephen Harper?

Yesterday, the CBC and other Canadian media outlets reported that Minister of State for the Status of Women Helena Guergis behaved inappropriately while undergoing security screening at the Charlottetown Airport on February 19th, 2010. Further details of this inappropriate behaviour can be found at the following links:

In light of the lack of response from our Prime Minister, I am wondering exactly what does it take to get fired from the Harper cabinet?

Harper defended Federal Agriculture Minister Gerry "...death by a thousand cold cuts..." Ritz during the listeriosis scare that killed more than 20 Canadians. He refused the resignation letter of former Natural Resources Minister Lisa "shortage of medical isotopes is sexy" Raitt after it was discovered that she left sensitive documents behind at an Ottawa television studio and was recorded criticizing her fellow cabinet minister Leona Aglukkaq, the Minister of Health.

Is Harper's defence of his so obviously underqualified and insensitive Ministers just part of the "corporate culture" that now exists in Ottawa under his leadership?

Oh that the rest of us would be so lucky to have high paying jobs where we could be totally incompetent and still be employed no matter how poorly we performed!
