Canadian Government: Still Boring

How is it that even when the Canadian government is undergoing the most dramatic events in my lifetime, it's still boring as hell?

Now while I'm certainly not one to support what's going on right now [how Dion could ever believe he'd be welcomed with open arms as a placeholder PM is anybody's guess], I can't quite jump onto Gordo's foam-dripping train of wrath directed at the coalition parties, with no heat on the Tories [and seriously, Windsor Star? Can we thumbnail that picture of Henderson? Horrifying].

My own opinions tend to lead to the Globe's current editorial on the matter, suggesting that while a Dion-led coalition government is about the last thing this country needs, this is a mess of Harper's making. His plan to try and cut the subsidies to the other parties would have effectively neutered them politically, leaving them unable to financially compete in any future elections.

And the opposition are the ones taking a poop on democracy.

The sad fact is that none of our federal leaders give a good goddamn about democracy, only about power and keeping a tight hold on their fragile positions.

Sad, sad, sad.
