Remember that old SNL skit with Alec Baldwin as the politician who unwittingly insults a baby and uses the flag to wipe egg off of himself? Fast-forward ten years to Stephen Harper.

http://www.cbc.ca/story/canada/national/2005/06/24/newparliament050624.html

I actually laughed out loud when I read this story. Apparently, the Liberals saw that episode of West Wing a few months ago and saved the idea for a rainy day. The Liberals are outwitting the Conservatives at every turn, only two months after Canadians were supposed to be "demanding a new government" in the wake of the Gomery testimony.

At this point, I would not be surprised by anything that Stephen Harper does to make himself and his party look foolish in front of the Canadian people. At what point do the Conservative Party members take a look at Harper's hideous batting average and decide to put in a different hitter?

"You can look the other way once, and it's no big deal, except it makes it easier for you to compromise the next time, and pretty soon that's all your doing; compromising, because that's the way you think things are done. You know those guys I busted? You think they were the bad guys? Because they weren't, they weren't bad guys, they were just like you and me. Except they compromised... Once." -- Jack Bauer

Over/under is currently 18 months. As a Conservative supporter, I predict that he'll be out after disappointing results in the next election...if he lasts that long.

Its times like this that I grow to miss Preston Manning more and more.

Exactly, and that's why Jerry Falwell is a hatemongering douchebag.
