And on the positive side:
- Paul Martin is finally gone. And good riddance to that hack.
- Having been spanked soundly, the Liberals can do a thorough housecleaning and perhaps return politically to somewhere left of centre, geography they seem to visit only on occasion.
- Good For Jack Layton, having picked up 10 seats nationally.
- With only a minority, I'm sure it's just a matter of time before Harper tries to do something unspeakably stupid and his government gets defeated. I'm thinking a September election.
Suddenly, I'm feeling a whole lot better about this.
