Stephen Taylor's Blogging Tories are on high mauve alert and getting primed with their "Prorogation is teh awesome!" talking points. Here's one of Stephen's BTers, who makes me ashamed to be from Manitoba:
... "Do I appoint 5 new Conservative Senators before January 25th, 2010, and then Prorogue Parliament until January 25th, 2010, which was when we were supposed to go back to work anyway, and on that date, give a new Throne Speech and start a brand new Parliamentary session from scratch? That would scrap a whole bunch of bills on the table already, but would change the face of all the Senate Committees to our favour. And it also wouldn't look like we were trying to avoid 'DetaineeGate.'"
I think I'd like that last option, please...
Good thinking, "Hinchey." Because sodomizing fundamental democracy and giving the Canadian electorate the massive middle finger that way would make us all forget about this Afghan detainee thing. Because we're stupid that way.
Oh, wait, that's not us, that's you. Sorry for the confusion. Carry on.

Oh, wait ... that didn't really narrow things down, did it?
