Conventional wisdom check

Everyone seems to think Harper's been chastised and this month's budget will flow with the milk of human kindness. But what if it doesn't? What if Harper pulls another nasty and forces the Liberals, Bloc and NDP to revisit -- and probably, under Ignatieff, back down from -- the unpopular coalition idea?
What then?
Harper's left with incredible renewed strength, plus there's the attraction, to him, of forcing his enemies to eat dirt.

Mark,

I've been thinking exactly the same thing. I presume that Iggy's not as dumb as Dion and wouldn't commit suicide everywhere that isn't Quebec.


Which means he either abstains and looks like a retard, or forces an election and loses.


The real bet is how long our pal Warren is allowed to keep his website up now that he's on the payroll. I'm guessing 2-3 weeks.


But caches live forever....
