I lied. That post back a while was not the last political post. On this "day after" I do have something to say about the Canadian election.
It's over and done with. We're stuck with another minority government, and thus elections in 1.5 to two years probably...
Of course a minority Conservative government is better than a majority Conservative government so I guess that's good.
Things I've noticed this morning:
- In all the radio interviews I've heard, if the candidate lost (whatever his party), it's the other parties' fault - never his or her own. How is that?
- The fact that the Liberals lost lots of seats is the Conservatives' fault.
- The fact that the Conservatives made zero gains in Quebec is the fault of the Bloc and Liberals' scare tactics.
- The Bloc MPs are refusing to speak to the press until Daddy Duceppe talks first. That is beyond ridiculous.
The whole thing reminds me of a sixth grade schoolyard scuffle. "Mr. Principal, it's his fault! He started it!"
Grow the hell up!
