Martha - Woo - Who

Justinminia continues to sweep the Liberal party. And he cannot be described as anything less than a winner. Pax Harpernia will endure for now but when the season of Stephen Harper's life change and he retires, Trudeauminia will sweep the nation. Which sucks for the nation: the winning Trudeau will be losing for the country. Not totally catastrophic, more like the reign of the wet blanket. Its a gorgeous Hudson Bay blanket - promising comfort and style - but when Canada slips under this chic cover, she knows immediately its gonna be a cold, long night. The knock on Trudeau is that he's holds too dearly many bimbo-lefty ideas. He's big on "youth" and "youth partcipation" - then again, so would I if it generated $450,000 in speaking fees for me. More seriously he told Quebec he'd rather live in a separate Quebec than in a Canada run by the Conservative party. Besides this being a betrayal of anglo Quebec, it is 70s style chauvinistic leftyism: democracy's great, so long as it returns my party to power. He would, for the good of the planet, re-engineer our economy in a heartbeat. He would trundle down a path guided by Rumsfeld's most dangerous types of facts: unknown unknowns. It would cost us and help Gaia not one bit. Still, it would probably be fun for a lot people to live under PM Trudeau, Part Deux. That makes Trudeau the next leader of the Liberal party. The only thing between him and a cake-walk is Martha Hall Findlay. A punchline the last time she ran (Martha Who Who), MHF spent the weekend demolishing Marc Garneau as the clear, obvious alternative to Justin Trudeau. Her "apology" for attacking Trudeau's wealth was no momemnt of regret. It was a chance to reinforce that she was the only plausible place for Grits worrying about Justin Trudeaus, er, ripeness. And it is fairgame to remind people that joe average does not have the same notion of "casual wardrobe" as a Trudeau. However, Trudeau is better than that attack. "Rich kid" grabbed this weekends news, but it don't have legs. MHF, on the otherm just might.
