Now that the election is over, I am finding it harder to find anything of interest to report. A majority is boring, but I am happy with boring as opposed to a coalition of lefties.
The media party is going to have to start digging into the NDP MP's backgrounds to make interesting reading for political junkies. Will they? Not so far. Maybe they will put their brains in gear when Parliament resumes, but I'm not counting on it. I would like a pictorial review of the election winners and losers. I think Mark Hollands mug against the winner Chris Alexander would let everyone have a clearer picture of who really is left for the Liberals to choose as leader, both short and long term.
So far the best I can find is by (Yikes) Wiki!
They give the results by riding, stating the incumbent and the number of votes for each candidate. Boy do the green votes suck.
I can't wait for the new session to start, it should be a lot of fun watching Layton turn into a control freak like Harper is always accused of being. At least PM Harper has shown leadership, I wonder what we will be thinking about Layton and his kids. The fact that the NDP now has no power to enact any policies promised to Quebec because there will be no coalition is going to be interesting. Look up way up at Jack on the tightrope, will he fall into the training nets, or will he pull his team together? We will find out soon. Maybe Hedi Fry should be the new leader of the Liberals, that would really be fun combined with the NDP rookies. It would also be very gender friendly, you know, that we need more women in Parliament cry. What it all boils down to, is that there is nothing really interesting to report in politics, yet!
