...then refer you to a spot-on rant from Gerald Caplan:
The government has lost any inclination to actually introduce policies, beyond satisfying its base with regular law-and-order bollocks.
The NDP will hold a big national convention where the only faux-excitement will be an elite-led attempt to change the name to the Democratic Party. To this fine state has the party of Tommy Douglas and David Lewis descended, at a time of multiple crises with the democratic left virtually moribund. No new public policy ideas will be introduced.
And on Iggy, he states clearly what I am gradually starting to think myself--the gaffes are coming back:
As for the Liberals, they must rein in their virginal leader or see their potential for growth dissolve in smoke and mirrors. It's sad to see a man aspire to high office before he has successfully learned to fake sincerity. And it's mind-blowing that a man with no experience whatever of the political game has been given so much unilateral power to make crucial decisions for his party. He is not equipped.
If you're at a picnic with Iggy this summer, keep him away from the BBQ. I don't want to see pictures of him on CTV with his tie on fire.
(PS. Don't let him near the salad table either: he will mess with it until he's done.)
