What a week's its been! If its one thing political junkies can't say these days, is that they don't have much on their plate to comment on. Let's recap, Canada chooses change
, Palestine chooses War
. Conspiracy theories runs wild among Canadian leftists
,where Conservative bloggers loose two of their best contributors
. Iran saber rattles
some more, while logic and common sense continues its drop throughout the Middle East
. And down south, we're continuously reminded of the bullets
that the free world has dodged
over the past two elections. Highlights:Canada: Strong, United, Independent and Free
: I don't know about you, but if Stephen Harper's victory speech
is an indication of how he will govern, the Liberals might want to start getting comfortable in Stornoway
, they're future leader might be place calling that home for a long time to come. And you thought Ontario Conservatives had it tough:
Following the huge breakthrough the Tories had in the Quebec City region, the reaction from the Quebec francophone press has been...how shall we say...vicious. What was the poll a T.V. station based in Montreal asked its viewers following the election? Are Quebec City residents aliens from outer space? Vive Le Roi Arthur
: The controversial André Arthur
has been elected
as an independent in his riding of Portneuf-Jaques Cartier. Following years of him taking abuse by the CRTC, the artist community and government bureaucrats regarding his radio show
, Arthur's aim will be to turn the tables on them. His first priority? Bitchslapping the CRTC
. Woo Hoo!!Prime Minster Idol:
I'm not so sure about this
. Think about it, if Joe "Who" Clark, Kim Campbell and John Turner praise you as having "political potential", should you really
take that as a flattering remark? Kinda like Argentina giving you advice on how to fix your economy. The world according to McQuack
: Let's see here, Hamas gets elected, and promises to continue on its "armed struggle"
against Israel (read: Terrorism). Harper hints he won't recognize the government until they renounce it
, in order to move ahead with the peace process. Reasonable right? NOPE! Not according to Linda
, who scolds Harper for this "insensitive" move.
Who cares about the fate of Israeli children as long as Canada is in good standing with the international academic elite according to this hag. Iran, "Anti-Union"?:
Boy, its getting real tough for the leftists to stand up for their allies nowadays. Not only is Iran going full speed with its Nuclear plans, but its now also cracking down on striking workers
. Whatever happened to SOLIDARITY? Democrats continue to offer Bush a lifeline:
With Bush's popularity plummeting, both among Liberals AND conservatives, is it really wise for the Dems to act in a way
to fire up the Republican machine once more? This just might be Bush's chance to warn his base of supporters what they might loose should they decide to stay at home this fall during the Mid-Terms.The Arab "street" is dumb!
: I was supposed to make a separate post on the absurd and hypocritical
way many in the Muslim world are reacting to the Danish cartoons which mocked the Prophet Mohammed (I discussed these cartoons back in October here
). But Sandmonkey, as usual beats me to it
. And describes it in a much better way I could ever have. (Note to Sandmonkey: Your making the rest of us Anti-Jihadis look bad!
) Political Cartoon of the week: The Hab-Nots
: Being a Habs fan has been incredibly depressing for the past month. We loose 17 of our last 20 road games, we fire the coach for something that was beyond his control, Theodore proves just what an overpaid jackass he really is, and we get trounced on by the League Heavyweights. No the last two games don't give me much hope either, they were against two struggling teams who are having injury trouble. So unless Gainy can carry on a winning streak from here on in until the Olympic break, its safe to assume that bearing any changes to the roaster, were toast for the season.
