I'm dancing as fast as I can.

Dear Canada:

Just in case you needed further evidence of what a not-so-cheap whore I truly am, yesterday’s orgy of spending budget proves that I will say anything, promise anything, and, more importantly, screw anyone and anything I have to in order to keep my pudgy little fingers wrapped around the levers of power.

Yours in the gargantuan deficit,
Big Daddy, Fiscal Conservative

You know what's coming, don't you? Yes, yes, you do:

"... there is no deficit, and there won't be ..."

I don't think I'm ever going to get tired of that.

That only has power among those who actually believed that, which would be Conservatives. And since those people don't put any stake into what they believe (since they can believe several mutually-exclusive things at the same time), it has no power at all.

The only issue that's worth focusing on is how inept this government has been. Three years of campaigning and none of actual government.

There was a time, long, long ago, that the thought of a leaner, efficient, more transparent government of an appropriate size appealed to me. That disappeared the minute the Conservatives chose Harper as their leader.
