Gnomes is getting angry.

Or perhaps dismayed is a better word. Certainly frustrated, and mildly despondent. The prospect of a Conservative majority government used to be something he could laugh at, take a sip of his martini, and then laugh some more. Yet there’s little to laugh about these days.

What we know Harper would do with a majority (pull out of Kyoto, legislate against SSM, raise the cutoff for the lowest tax bracket as well as the rate for that bracket) is abominable, and that’s what he’s willing to tell us in a campaign where he is pretending to be somewhat centrist. One can only imagine what he and his neoconservative Calgary School chums have planned should they gain control of the House.

Still, the latest projections still have them in minority territory, and there’s a chance a few stories in the final week will help the Liberals rebound.

Should the worst occur, the prospect of four years of unchallenged rule by Harper and his motley crew inspires a visceral reaction in this blogger which isn’t conducive to reasoned discourse. Look for M&G to switch over to its new format on Jan. 24th: stream-of-consciousness, profanity-laced, incoherent rants.

    Yeah. Mildly despondent. That sounds about right.

    On the plus side, there is the Kinsella argument. In the paraphrased immortal words of the Joker, “What this party needs is an enema.”
