Sure, it’s obviously an opportunistic desperation ploy on the part of an increasingly irrelevant party. But damn if Duceppe doesn’t have my vote – were it not for the niggling matter of separatism, the lack of available candidates west of Hull, and the fact that, like Stephane Dion (who ‘doesn’t like to make threats‘) he’s totally full of shit with his half-assed MOR ‘wait till 2009’ cop-out. Who wants to bet that, come September, Duceppe and Dion, eyes firmly fixed on the tea leaves, quietly back down from their courageously vague insinuations?
Look, Stephane – you and Gilles need to get together, stop the egotistical bullshit, and come up with a plan to get Canadian troops out of there. Period. The sooner they come home, the better. If you guys actually had any cajones, you’d start calling for a troop withdrawal now – not in 2009. How many more soldiers will have to die while you wait this out? That’s the bottom line.
Sounds to me like LC has been spending too much time listening to those dirty fucking hippies in the NDP. Pshhh – as if we should expect Serious™ elected officials to actually entertain wacky proposals like immediate withdrawal. Why, what would the neighbours say?
