Jack and Gilles...

...should take a pill...

By contrast, Mr. Ignatieff's move provoked outrage from New Democratic Party Leader Jack Layton and Bloc Quebecois Leader Gilles Duceppe, who wanted the Liberals to defeat the government over the budget as early as next week.

Mr. Layton immediately slammed Mr. Ignatieff, saying the Liberals no longer had the right to claim to be the government-in-waiting. "We have a new coalition now on Parliament Hill. It's a coalition between Mr. Harper and Mr. Ignatieff."
Gee guys... Iggy's fresh off his own little coup d'etat... who could possibly have seen this sort of treachery comin' down the pike?

Politics 101, my socialist friends... "If they'll do it with you, they'll do it to you."
Mr. Duceppe said when the Liberals shared their budget-amendment proposal with him, he declared, "The coalition is dead, it's finished, it's over."
Ya think?

Nobody ever accused Jack and Gilles of having a keen sense of the obvious.

Like many marriage splits, there is usually one partner who is so totally clueless, they can't believe it when it happens. The other partner has usually known for quite some time...

I wonder if Dr. Phil does Canadian house calls?

i think these guys are way beyond marriage counselling... sadly, it's more like "take it to the vet and put 'er down" time.

I'm reading a book and there is a scene where a mother is trying to put a 2 year old down for a nap.

"No", says the toddler.

Knowing that "no" is a 2-year old's favourite word, Mom uses a bit of reverse psychology.

"Do you want a cookie?", she asks.

"No!", says the boy.

The look on his face when he realizes he's been fooled was one of rapidly changing emotions. From triumph of exerting a small amount of authority over his mom, to the realization and broken heart that he'd been fooled was both funny and heartbreaking.

Now replace "cookie" with "power", "Mom" with Ignatief, and "2-year old" with Jack Layton and I hope you see the connection

with one important difference... the toddler will most assuredly learn from his experience.

in the other situation, as soon as he gets another alluring whiff of power... jacko will throw himself back into the fray.

I remember back in the late 60's when a Joe Luis was more than a pack of cigarettes.

It seemed more unattainable as a adult treat and became a status symbol because anyone could collect old glass pop bottles for 2 cents each from the local baseball field and for 18 cents plus 1 penny for matches you got a 20 pack of Push-Top non-filtered smokes.

The funny part was that when I did start buying smokes "For my Dad" it was illegal to sell matches to persons under 16 .
It's a really strange world today in Ontario because the Nanny State has all these rule to protect kids in cars and at home , BUT......I still see these idiots with Bicycles that have that solid Plastic Child seat on the back fender that pounds the hell out of their Spinal discs and shakes their organs .
How the hell does Mayor Miller allow kids to be on a Bike zipping alone at about 20-25 MPH among Auto traffic with only a skull cap helmet with no facial protection , do we really need to have a Bike-death crisis first with toddlers and then make laws that ban those Death-traps and spine-pounding child-seats.
