How About Those Liberal Democrats?
OMG. How much good news can I take in one day?
First this story made me feel like I could fly.
Then this story blew me away.
Senior insiders with the federal Liberals and New Democrats have been holding secret talks about the possibility of merging their parties to form a new entity to take on the Conservatives, CBC News has learned
The new party would possibly be named the Liberal Democrats and there has been tentative talk about what a shared platform would look like and an understanding that a race would be required to choose a new leader.
But of course it makes so much sense. Why should the Cons hold us hostage and rape our country with thirty-one percent of the vote?
When we can unite and crush them with forty-three percent, and drive them from power FOREVER.
Oh I know. I'm sure the idea of a merger will prove too shocking for some on our side. The old guard, the bag men, the cheap partisans, the Con collaborators. The ones who smell of mothballs and formaldehyde.
And I think we should probably concentrate on forming a coalition first, to hone our ability to compromise.
But I'm so glad some in both parties are talking about it. Because it is also an idea whose time WILL come.
And in a young country which sometimes appears so old and tired, I do believe that many Canadians... especially younger ones... are ready for something new and different.
Liberal Democrats eh? I like it.
Almost as much as Stephen Harper must hate it.
Can you imagine how that twisted monster must be feeling tonight?
First he tries to demonize the idea of a coalition and Canadians tell him to go screw himself.
Now he'll be waddling after the idea of a merger trying to screw it as well.
And looking as ridiculous as this poor little guy...
It's a separatist coalition !!!! It's a socialist coalition !!!!! It's a merger !!!!! It's a shoe !!!!!
But just like nothing can stop a horny tortoise, nothing can stop an idea whose time has come.
After the long and depressing night of the soul, it's finally morning in Canada.
And EVERYTHING seems possible....
