What a great day for the NDP. You dippers must be positively orgasmic. I've seen so much discussion over the years about how great it would be if the NDP could just knock the Liberals out of second place. Well, you've done it!! So, now what?
Well, first Jack will have to introduce himself to his Quebec caucus, assuming they can all be found. Then he'll have to figure out how he can be the voice of Quebec, from downtown Toronto. What adventure! What fun!
From now until 2015, we'll be treated to the spectacle of Harper monotoning his speeches in parliament while he dismantles federal institutions. Goodbye, CBC. Canada Health Act, what's that? No more of those commie voter subsidies to put a dent in the Conservatives fund-raising advantage. But it's all good 'cause we'll get to watch smilin Jack squawk impotently from across the aisle. The result will be more polarized politics which will turn off more voters. And that will play back into Harper's hands.
The best part is that all those blind NDP partisans who've been swearing that Harper is no worse than the Liberals are now going to get to find out for sure.
