Where leaders lead ... wankers follow. First, a little celebratory gloating on Steve Janke's part:
Stephen Harper and the Conservatives in a weak minority situation put forward a motion that is roundly opposed by all three opposition parties on a topic that for many Canadians represents the deepest held misgivings about where post-9/11 Canada is going...and Stephen Harper wins!
Which means exactly what, Steve? Oh ...
For the Canadian left in general, a panic will start. If Stephen Harper can win this vote, what other votes can he win? Joining the US in developing a ballistic missile defense system? Redefining marriage as a heterosexuals-only institution?
If Steve Janke seriously thinks he can extend the results of the Afghanistan vote to things like ballistic missile defense or SSM rights, he's going to be one sorry little puppy when reality slaps him upside the head with a crowbar.
You keep dreaming, Steve. Whatever makes your delusions comfortable.
