Almost fell off my chair this evening as Owly Oliver got the call tonight to explain the origin of the terms "left" and "right". And the Birdman jumped in with both feet. For instance, I bet you didn't know that the Liberals are not a leftwing party.
According to Oliver, the Libs are smack in the center of the political spectrum.
I was also amazed to learn that Stephen Harper himself... the man... according to Oliver anyway... yanking the Conservatives further & further to the right... is also personally responsible for taking the word "progressive" out of Progressive Conservative.
I was waiting for Oliver to try place the Prime Minister on the "grassy knoll" outside the Texas Book Depository... but apparently cooler heads prevailed in the Editing Bay.
They don't even bother to try hide the bias anymore.
