Breaking News: les drôles amies tell PM to take his prorogue and...



































A PM gets his highly irregular prorogue. Three Coalition leaders hit a noon rally on Parliament Hill and vow to remain coalesced. And to keep swinging. The second-guessing and chivvying begins. So, everybody, get your coveralls and umbrellas ready. I hear Mr. Harper's well-oiled, well-financed platoon of motorized manure spreaders idling just offstage. And Mr Layton's motormouth just beginning to warm up. The upshot? Dunno. The only certainties are that it's gonna be a long six weeks until parliament is recalled. And that it's going to get ugly...er.

I predict that whatever the middle of the road is in this situation, that's what will happen... because that's where everybody feels comfortable...yawn

Coyote, judging from the camera angle, we were in very close proximity. I didn't see you - did you see me?

No, ma'am. I would have stopped to yap a hello if I had.

Here's the test: how close were you to that bulky pro-Tory agent provocateur with the skinhead haircut and the scar on his forehead? The one who sporadically bodychecked others in the crowd and then yelled threats at the people that tried to persuade him to either stop it or leave quietly...?

He was about eight feet to my right and about one foot behind me.

Is that Stephane Dion, I didn't recognize him in focus.

Seriously, I was hoping that his would finally be the stake through the Conservative majority. I fear it may have increased Conservative support... the only good news is that now the Conservatives are screwed in Quebec.

Zoom: Well then. I was about ten feet to your right...

Nat: Pathetic, isn't it? You know this country's politics are screwed up when a dog has a clearer picture of things than the Liberal brain trust... or the Tory brain trust, for that matter.
