Run Mikey, run!!!

...allons-y, mon brave...

One of those whose enthusiasm did not wane is Ignatieff's Quebec lieutenant, Denis Coderre. But Coderre is safe in his north-end Montreal riding of Bourassa.

And since it's a French-speaking Quebecer's turn to be the next Liberal leader, a defeat for Ignatieff would bring Coderre one step closer to achieving his ambition.

"I don’t know where President Obama is finding all these black folk he’s putting in positions of authority, but they’re not only making us all look bad, he’s damaging race relations beyond what anyone could even imagine."
Hey... is it racist if a black man says it?

I'm so confused.

Geez I hope so Coderre is unmarketable in the ROC.

poor ol' denis khadr... he just hasn't been the same since that operation... to remove his sense of irony.

guess it was one of those things this fearless warrior just didn't need any more.

James
Good point but I didn't know that there were degrees of 'having the plague'.

"james asks... Which one's worse?"

president mcdreamy, hands down.

see, it's always the guy who's actually got his hands on the levers of power.

iggy still has miles to go before he sleeps.

oops... just realised james was likely asking about a comparison between iggy & denis khadr.

the fact is, james... coderre is totally unpalatable to canadians outside of quebec... so that's really a moot question.

Pas Denis Coderre - he is the image of a fat cat, a bit like Gagliano.

Problem is the next time is not a delegated choice, its OMOV.
So unless teh vote is "weighted" being anglo or franco won't mean a damn. Its all about how many votes from all ridings you can obtain.
That unwritten rule of alternation got tossed in the dustbin of history.

"gimbol says... being anglo or franco won't mean a damn"

yeah... the same folks who brought us "adscam" and had to recruit an untainted leader from outside the country... they're just all about the rules, aren't they?
