"These times are tough indeed for CONs. Though a week late, I think the New Orleans jubilant exhortation for Mardi Gras is more than appropriate for democracy-lovin' folks who can't wait to see the back of those carpetbaggers: 'Laissez l'bon temps rouler!'

"It just goes to show that the only way a far right agenda can win in Canada is by cheating."
The last words (from good cop John McClane): "Yippee-ki-yay, motherfucker."
