Political Lesson of the Week

Jason Kenney talked with Terrorists, and a quick look at Google tells you that the MSM hasn't run a story on the topic for nearly a week. The Tories kept their heads down, looked away and coughed politely, or jumped to Kenney's defense. And they came out of it smelling like roses.

Meanwhile, Borys Wrzesnewskyj went to Lebanon, talked sense, and had his ass fried by fellow Liberals, led by a lynch-mob from the blogosphere, much to the joy of the Canadian Media establishment. Liberals came out of the week looking shaken, and as though the Politically Correct Purity Cops were in charge.

Ohh! you might say. The Libs won a moral victory. Well, a moral victory is the kind of victory you win when you lose.

You know, ten years ago it was the Tories who were ready to pitch you out if you weren't committed to, for example, repealing the metric system. On the other hand, the Libs were a loose, friendly, non-uptight Big Tent. Now it's as though the parties have switched Membership rosters.
