And only hours after I gave Olaf credit for being smarter than the average Blogging Tory, he goes and makes a fool of me:
A game of musical chairs? Have you ever played musical chairs, Stephane? I'm sure your erudite family played games of scrabble up to the age of 5, and then advanced to the always popular board game, Name that Nobel Prize Laureate. However, musical chairs, played by me and my less than brilliant peers, involves taking away chairs from the game until only a single chair (and a two players) remain, with the final player being he or she who sits on the chair when the music stops. However, in this case, Harper actually added 6 cabinet positions. Only a hopelessly perverted game of musical chairs would actually add chairs.
Furthermore, no one is exempt from musical chairs: everyone stands up and everyone moves. The majority of cabinet ministers currently sitting who were not shuffled, are indication enough that this shuffle resembles less "musical chairs" and more a game of ultimate duck duck goose* (which is the game I prefer, to this day).
Hence, the analogy to musical chairs, however appealing to the elitist Liberal base (who were never forced in a child care facility to actually play a game of musical chairs), is altogether nonsensical.
And besides, when kids play that game, actual chairs are involved, so you can see how that analogy is totally idiotic and Stephane Dion is a complete moron.
Tune in tomorrow when Olaf explains how Stephen Harper is nothing at all like George W. Bush because Stephen is ... uh ... taller.
