The Merger: My Horrible Morning After
Gosh. How embarrassing. I should have known not to get so carried away by the idea of a Liberal-NDP merger.
Did I really say it was morning in Canada? I guess it was a bit of a premature ejaculation.
Gawd. What a horrible morning after. I should have known I'm living in dreary old Conada where every new idea is greeted with a shudder or a scolding.
Or just plain hysteria.
Because it's all about the Liberals and the NDP and not about the future of Canada. Right?
So you'd think I'd be depressed eh?
That my wounded spirit would be spiralling gently down to earth.
Just like Michael Ignatieff's Liberals...
But not really.
Because if these are the terms of the merger.
I'm not interested. Whatever happened to the idea of choosing a new leader?
Oh well as I've said before, the main thing is that both the ideas COALITION and MERGER are out of the bag. They can only grow as the situation becomes more and more desperate. They'll never be as frightening to the crusty inhabitants of this country, as they were the first time.
And sooner or later the mathematics will become unavoidable. A divided left facing a united right is a recipe for disaster. And doing the same old thing over and over again, while going nowhere, is the definition of insanity.
Especially when your country is BURNING.
So all I can say is... now that the merger flap is over, let's concentrate on finding ways to cooperate and keep talking up the idea of a coalition whatever our leaders say.
And thank goodness I've got more than just Canadian politics to get excited about.
Like this other animal show...
Wow. What a concept eh?
The elephants, the lions, and the ostriches playing together on the same team !!!!!
Oh no. Now it's raining. Uniting the left is just too hard. I give up.
At least until tomorrow...
