POLITICS AS USUAL: 2-TIERS OF PANIC
Yesterday, people were enthrawled with an MP's stab at playing spy, now apparently all hell is breaking loose.
I have read a number of loooooooooooong scribes on the recent Supreme Court ruling, and I have a number of observations, vaccum sealed for freshness and delivered in easy-to-scan points:
- Where the H-E-Double-Hockey-Sticks is Stephen Harper?
- If PM Dithers' early reaction of "yeah, whatever--this doesn't mean anything" is a sign of things to come, he's in deep trouble.
- If FIB Premo Dalton McGuinty's early reaction of "yeah, whatever--this doesn't mean anything" is a sign of things to come, he's in deep trouble.
- If Ontario Oppo leader John Tory's early reaction of "Hmm.... this might just mean something" is a sign of things to come, he's in deep trouble.
- Why is Mike Harris the only Conservative coming out swinging?
- Is that a good thing, or a bad thing?
- Apparently, judicial activism is only bad when the ruling isn't in your favour.
- I wonder what shops like the Frasier Insititute will have to say about judicial activism now?
- Is this decision really counter to Canadian values, considering 50% of Canadians support the idea of a parallel private health system?
- Am I the only one that sees a great (albeit risky) opportunity for the Conservatives?
- Can Harper now change the channel and talk about something Canadians care about, or will it still be "All Grewal, All the Time"?
