Harper was the one who finally brought the "united right" to power. Even if he were willing to step down ("Say it ain't so, God-King Harper..."), there's no one else with his credibility on that side. Stockwell had his day (sorry!) and so did Manning.

McKay, I believe, is not taken completely seriously given that he only held power long enough to sign it over to Harper. And there are still folks out there who believe he sold out the old school PC party when he did that. You generally don't hear from those folks when their side is winning, but in the wake of the last couple of weeks I've heard more and more people say as much.

Oh, and to go with the Goon's Rex Murphy commentary, here's another Newfoundlander with another grand skewering of pretty much everyone involved:

It's gotten so bad that last night this was one of the lead stories on The Daily Show. Jon even had his top correspondants looking into Canada's reliance on the Queen and her representative to make these decisions for us...

You, as non-Canadians can get the clips here:

Unfortunately, we Canadians have to go to the Canadian Comedy Network site to get the clips and they are not posted yet...

As for the Liberals, see ya Stephane, nice to know ya. The Coalition will be dead with Ignatieff at the helm, but, in the end, hopefully they have accomplished what they wanted. Harper and the Conservatives will have to include some of the oppositions ideas in their budget.

Ignatieff: good luck to him. They picked a better choice as leader though it wouldn't be hard to top Dion or Rae. If they thought Dion was bad for the Liberals, imagine the ridings Rae would lose as leader: people still remember his turn as premier of Ontario and the damage he did to the economy.

Unicow, unicow...he's a unicorn cow!

Look, the issue is "getting into somewhere for reasons other than merit." That is what people have a problem with. People are pointing out the ways in which this happens.
