Good on Jim

Have not hung that much with Jim Flaherty, but so far I like the guy. He’s friendly, straight-forward, unflashy, consistent. I remember when he ran to be leader of the Ontario Tories, and gave the only believable speech of the leadership convention, eschewing the podium and actually looking like a real person instead of a suit. Nice.

'Unsure Liberal' discovered

After much Googling, a few brown envelopes and a job offer for a down-on-their-luck Liberal staffer, I've discovered the just launched website for the frontrunner in the Liberal Leadership race.(cont'd @ Blue Blogging Soapbox)

When the Pen is Mightier Than the Jihad...

"While here at home, we continue to debate the petty issue of whether a Prime Minister can revolutionize the way he picks his team, they actually have real problems out in the real world..."(cont'd @ The Hunter's Blog)

A Bio of Mohammad (May Peace Be With Him)

"Mark Reibling has saved us the trouble of learning Arabic and agonizing through the Koran.
(Warning: If you decide not to take the short cut, remember, if you don't receive the Holy Koran while kneeling, and wearing gloves, and chant it aloud in Arabic, then you are a blaspheme and subject to beheading.)"(cont'd @ Canadian Blue Lemons)

Islamic Congress looking for friends in government?

"Interesting approach for a group that supposedly want to open a "healthy dialogue" with the government. Here's a hint, you might want to tone down the rhetoric a tad and drop the "feared five" tag."(cont'd @ Blue Blogging Soapbox)

Sacrifice of the Pawn

Prime Minister Stephen Harper has been refered to as a master chess player (most recently on this blog yesterday) and so that is why I'm not suddenly hitting the roof after Michael Fortier and David Emerson both found their way to Rideau Hall today. Peronally, I find this a mixed bag on both counts:(cont'd @ The Hunter's Blog)

And, on a Less Serious Note

Count on Bill Graham for a little unintentional irony to lighten the mood [CBC, Reaction to Harper's cabinet appointments]:(cont'd @ The Progressive Right)

Oopsy Doodle

One thing I'm not going to miss about the election campaign is this constant reference:
If the Conservative Party were the old Progressive Conservative Party, they'd have a real shot at power.
Scott Brison says it every 5 minutes. He must be the life of a party.(cont'd @ The Progressive Right)

From knowledge comes...

I didn't start out to post on a theme with my last, but then I came across this letter to the editor in today's Windsor Star. I like the idea. I think it's a great example of how knowledge can still drive the economy, if it's not stifled... (cont'd @ Blue Blogging Soapbox)

Leader of the Liberal Party: The Position No One Wants

I read this article at CTV and couldn't help but feel a sense of irony. Below is a partial reprint of the article, including a lot of things they could have said, but didn't... (cont'd @ RootleWeb)

Through the hoop and onto some tacks...

You may recall that I made an entry a while ago about how ridiculous the ethics process is here at my university.

It took me a couple of days, but I finally went through all the paper work and jumped through all the hoops to get my ethics application in.(cont'd @ Moxy Thoughts)

Detailed Analysis of Gomery II - 45 minutes after Release

So, I finally saw the second report by Mr. Justice Gomery (Gomery II, for short), and have been browsing it for the past 40 minutes. It’s quite a lengthy (200+ page) document, and in the interests of full disclosure I have been flipping through it very rapidly, and may have missed some minor details supporting Gomery’s recommendations...

Liberals and NDP should merge

An interesting piece in today's Globe and Mail (H/T to Jack's Newswatch). Given the current state of the Liberal's leadership woes, this might not be a bad option for them to persue. Most likely though, the Liberals would need to lose another election and the NDP lose some seats before either would even contemplate this option. Is Canada ready for a two party system?

The Palestinians are the problem

First and foremost, it proves what people who perceive reality have been saying for decades: The great majority of Palestinians -- like the majority of Arabs elsewhere and like vast numbers of non-Arab Muslims -- want Israel destroyed. Even granting legitimacy to the argument that the complete moral, financial and political corruption of Fatah was partly responsible for the Hamas victory, those who voted for Hamas did not find that organization's terror, religious celebration of murder or charter calling for Israel's destruction an impediment to their vote.(Cont'd @ The Reclusive Antiquarian)

The Cure That Speaks Not Its Name

In the current culture war it has become politically incorrect to even suggest that a homosexual lifestyle could possibly lead one to a higher risk of contracting AIDS. Finding stories that suggest this is quite the challenge too... (cont'd @ The Hunter's Blog)

The Philosophy of Change

Well, a good friend of mine got philosophical on her blog, and as I was standing outside having a quick butt, I decided that the topic was something that could be dealt with in a separate post...(cont'd @ Canadian Honky-Tonk Bar Association)

Don't Pickton at it, you'll only make it worse...

In the news again recently is alleged (hah!) serial killer Robert (Willy) Pickton.

His case is finally making some progress. What is somewhat startling though is that he has entered a plea of "not guilty" for all 27 murders he is currently being charged with... (cont'd @ Moxy Thoughts)
