Globe & Post: Dion on the Way Out, Coalition in Shambles

After all the rallies and discussion in the blogosphere (good stuff today over at Vancouver blogger Nancy Zimmerman’s political posts) about Canada’s political crisis, the coalition has reached new heights of silliness. The opposition parties are so ecstatically confident that Dion should be the next PM… that they’re replacing him ASAP.

Good luck convincing the voters that you’re not just improvising from day to day, jackasses.

    Tell us how you really feel, Jonathan! I must admit, I was giggling at the prospect of Dion becoming PM if the GG refused to prorogue Parliament and the no-confidence vote was held today.

    I have wondered at how far in the background of the coalition deal Ignatieff was keeping – turns out he was busy doing other things while Bob Rae grandstanded (grandstood?). My hat’s off to him – way to steal a leadership convention.

    On seeing the news this morning, I’m a bit torn. I really wish Iggy had made his move BEFORE the coalition business was announced.

    I like Ignatieff. And I’m glad Dion in on the way out. Let’s see how this plays out over the next week or two.

    Oh, and I think the best turn of phrase would be “was grandstanding”. Best to avoid these niche problems altogether, I always say.

    It is all just a silly fight for power. The coalition couldn’t stand that the Conservatives won as a minority government.
