Five Further Thoughts for Day One

1. How bizarre is it that Tom Green is doing ads for CPAC? I like it.

2. Calgary Grit dices the absurdity of the campaign's first straw man fallacy - "Who loves Canada most" - so I don't have to.

3. On July 28th, 2005, I wrote as follows:
"Parrish and Grewal are easily the two most embarrassing MPs of this session. The real question is whether they are the most ridiculous of all time... My faith in democracy would be greatly enhanced if voters rewarded their absurdity and incompetence by summarily turfing them from office. Here's hoping."

Seems we didn't even need the voters to rid Parliament of both. Happy day.

4. I like and endorse what Responsible Government League said about "Star Candidates" yesterday, particularly on the recent Ignatieff fiasco. Hoped he would be different, but then again, I wonder how much it's his fault. Might never know.

5. Via Sinister Thoughts, Paul Summerville's Saturday National Post piece on the potential emergence of a market-aware NDP. Elections should involve more debates on these types of issues. More please.
