That's what the pollster-guy said on CBC's The Current this morning on the weekend's rallies. He was talking about how Obama married the power of the Intertoobs to an inspirational message and leader. (And how's that going for you, Merka?)
So, who can do it here? Jack? Too smarmy for many, including me. Iggy? Mr. Torture Lite? No way. Lizzie 'Nuance R Us' May? In some bizarre parallel universe, maybe.
Short answer: We got nuthin' and nobody.
The only thing that could possibly boot the Harpocons is a coalition AND deals among the opposition parties to run ONE strong candidate against the Cons in each riding.
For one election.
Harper will be gone. The ReformaTories will be in disarray. Then the Libs, Dippers, Greenies, and Bloquists can go back to their partisan games.
Canadians Against Proroguing Parliament still growing -- now 216, 131 -- and pissed at all the dismissive coverage the rallies are getting.
Harness the wrath, the passion, the engagement, the energy.
Put this lightning in a bottle.
