...and the headlines are apparently just trying to blatantly out-do each other now. The possibility of an NDP official opposition, the fear of a possible Conservative majority, the hope of the first Green MP (or maybe even two!) in Canadian history... and with 12 hours to go before voting starts, we're in a total eclipse of Osama.
Apparently Harper will say something after Obama does. I bet almost anything he mentions either the scary 'coalition' that only a majority government can save us from or why we need those F-35's in his speech, and claim bonus points if he does both. (Edit: Ok ok, so apparently he managed to restrain himself for at least the length of a short public statement. Knowing him, I'm sure it was a major struggle for him not to slip a partisan shot or two in there, even so.)
also still give it at most a week or so before it becomes a Republican talking-point that this was just an Osama body-double/political stunt (edit: does this count?), and probably much sooner than that before somebody refers to this publicly in perfect earnestness as "God's wedding present to Will and Kate".
But all I want for E-Day is my Green MP.
