Political Understatement of the Year

"It's not the first time in Canadian politics that obfuscation has been a substitute for action."

-Queen's Professor Ned Franks.
It won't be the last, either. I might just start dropping the observation into my regular commentary at random. I'm sure it would fit seamlessly.

The quote actually refers to the latest NDP "plan" to trigger a non-confidence motion that wouldn't actually kick in until January 6th. Or something. Maybe they should hire a few political science undergrads to tell them how little sense this makes.

Is it so difficult to draft a simple confidence motion? To Mr. Harper and Mr. Layton - if you want an election now, you know what to do. If not, stop posturing about and acting like frightened little children. It is so terribly embarrassing.
