Random Wishes

Given that the throne speech is still 19 days away, I'd really rather not have to endure daily election speculation around it.

I mean, can't we talk about something a little more relevant, like Paris Hilton, or Britney?

  • You'd rather hear about Dion's downward spiral, perhaps? :)

    I don't know about the ROC, but it's making major headlines in Qu├ębec. Occupied much of the front page of La Presse today.

  • Or how about we talk about Burma and the brutal suppression of pacifist Buddhist monks?

  • Do Calgarygrit's sentiments reflect the internal whisperings of the Gerard Kennedy camp? Does this mean that Kennedy and his backers have abandoned Dion, and will stampede the Liberals to electoral defeat, or rather, are they standing by their man? Is Calgarygrit trying to deflect attention away from federal politics and towards analysis of the earth-shaking results from his "greatest premier" vote.

    There are no clear answers, evidence or facts, but that hasn't stopped media speculation before.

  • It may sound a bit "conspiracy theory", but I sort of imagine that Parliament was prorogued to wait out the Ontario election, and that there are two Throne Speeches being roughed out. We've seen the outcome in Quebec (twice, in a way), and now we'll see the mood in Ontario. The tone of the Speech will be influenced by what happens.

    Liberal government in Quebec and Ontario usually means more federal Conservative votes, no? Well, I could be nuts.

    But it's fun to speculate. I love it! ;)

  • I guess all this election speculation has suddenly come down to Dion and the Liberals. I'm no psychic, but the writing is on the wall now - it's over, and the decision will be to take one for the team and lose an election now to be fired, or stay on to lose even bigger later.

    Honestly, I feel sort of bad for Dion. I think he miscalculated what total sharks he was swimming with.

    And you know what? If I was Dion and those options were put to me, I'd say, "Gee, thanks for all the support - I'll stay on and you can all go with me". But, he's not me - so we'll see.

    I would love someone to explain how Dion falling benefits Kennedy, since everyone will blame him for the bold move at the convention. Such nonsense to suggest what is happening is welcome news to former Kennedy supporters. In many respects, their fates are tied.

  • Kennedy is too busy facing down cops in Ukraine to weigh in. Yeah.
