We're Doomed

Paul Wells is depressing the hell out of me. I think because there is more than a little truth in what he is writing today:
I hope I have made it clear since the summer that I have come to believe Stephen Harper is turning into a really bad prime minister. He is incoherent, vicious and unserious. His fall update was idiocy on stilts, and when he sent his transport minister out two days later to disown the work of his finance minister, nobody in the country blinked because nobody in the country takes what this government does as a government seriously.

All the opposition had to do was come up with a better alternative. They have failed. This is a depressing moment in our nation’s politics.

Update: In retrospect the coalition may have come one election too late.

  1. On the bright side for your side, Harper seems to have united the left -- without even winning a majority.

  2. The left will stay united. As for the Liberals, only God and Warren know for sure (and neither is talking)

  3. Yes. This is a union of the center-left. How long it lasts depends on how long the centre pragmatists who understand that Harper is the biggest impediment to this functioning parliament keep hold of the centre opportunists who tend to loose focus and go "oh, look! Goldfish!"
