Dear Globe editorialists:
Thanks, Globe ... thanks ever so much. Maybe if you cementheads had had a freakin' clue a couple of months ago, we wouldn't be having this conversation right now.
Thanks for nothing. But feel free to continue taking several weeks to clue into what the rest of us can figure out in minutes. We're getting used to it.
P.S. I want the following words from that earlier editorial stenciled onto a baseball bat:
Whatever you think of him, the Stephen Harper of today is not the Stephen Harper of 2004 or earlier. The "firewall" temperament has largely subsided, despite the odd recurrence on matters such as artists who choose free expression over popularity. He is in better control of his emotions. He is smart enough and adaptable enough to recognize that his tendencies toward pettiness and hyper-partisanship hold him and his party back.
What I want to do with that baseball bat is none of your business.
