Why sooner rather than later

Babble on.

While I was fumbling to get a firm grasp on why Canada needs an election sooner rather than later, Mike Brock was grabbing the ball with both hands and running it into the end-zone:

He is asking you to forgive him, for being incompetent in his capacity as finance minister, for the transgressions of his party, and to be permitted through continued governance, to make up for those mistakes.
...
I’m sorry Mr. Martin; we don’t make drunk drivers pay for their mistakes by forcing them to drive little old ladies around. You do not get to pay for your mistake from inside the gates of 24 Sussex Drive.


To continue Mike's analogy, this request is especially ridiculous considering Martin's entire job description is to steer the vehicle of state where it needs to go. Fool me once...you know the rest.

Babble off.

I just mentioned to Mike on another site that the Conservatives might be fumbling in Ontario. I heard about an hour ago that Jim Flaherty is running in Whitby-Oshawa. That is red meat to the Harris wing of the party, but it sure will make the Liberal fear campaign easier to produce. I can see the ads now. "Do you want Jim Flaherty to do for the rest of Canada what he did for Ontario?" It practically writes itself (and given my writing skills it has to).
