Something we lefties learned a long time ago: Patience is a virtue.
If there's one thing we in the Leftosphere should understand by now, it's that we only need to be patient -- reality will catch up with everyone else eventually.
It was lefties who, way back in 2003, kept saying that invading Iraq was a bad idea, while the neo-cons couldn't stop clapping their little paws with glee about how easy it was going to be, what with all that democracy to spread and oil to pilfer. At this point, I'm not worried about who history is going to look kindly on, are you?
Then there was global warming, of which we progressives have been saying increasingly ominous things for quite some time. Pooh, pooh, said the Right. Oh, dear ... apparently, we proggies have been vindicated yet again.
The latest example of finally coming around is USA Today founder Al Neuharth, who ran into reality the other day and had it hoof him in the nads. While hacks like Powerline's John Assrocket describe President George W. McRetard as "a man of extraordinary vision and brilliance approaching to genius," poor Al has finally figured things out, admitting that, yes indeed, George W. really is the worst president ever -- something we liberals have been suggesting for a while now.
So now that we Canadian progressives are suggesting that Stephen Harper and the CPoC are possibly the worst thing to ever happen to this country, the only question is -- how long will it take before Canada's wankers begin to reluctantly admit that, yes, it appears that we were right all along?
Yes, instant gratification is nice, but most of us on the Left have outgrown it. We've learned to be patient. Given that we almost always turn out to be correct in the end, we can afford to be.
