The Lizzie May... "kiss of death"

In the 2008 election, the Greens attracted 937,000 votes, an increase of 237,000 over the previous election.

Last Monday they gave it all back, and more, dropping to 576,000 votes. That’s less than they polled in 2006 or 2004, under then-leader Jim Harris.

You have to go back to 2000 to find a worse result.
So much for the "big picture", huh?

I am glad Ms May has been elected. Sorry about Gary Lunn - he was a capable minister and was a great member of the Conservative government. Back to Ms May. She will be a shameless promoter of me, myself and I. Isn`t it telling that most of those who espouse the mantra of looking after the little guy are the first to beat the drum of me. Hope her constituients get their money`s worth. lol

Lordy, I can't stand that woman. Her persistant screech, her whining voice are annoying to say the least.

Thankfully, in question period she will only have her 35 seconds of dribble each day.

I'm sure defeated Tory minister Gary Lunn agrees.

All that mattered was that Dizzy Miss Lizzy got elected.

all that matters to lizzie, anyway...

"Yesterday, Stéphane Dion’s candidate in Central Nova, Elizabeth May retracted her characterization of NATO and Canadian forces as 'Christian Crusaders'."

third time lucky, i guess. she just had to find enough people who supported her stand on hamas.

The Greens are finding out that running as NDP lite doesn't work when there is the real thing. Just ask Michael Ignatieff.

May has doomed the party to irrelevance and their supporters will flock to Jack Layton in droves. Too bad really; the first incarnation of the Green Party before May took over had some interesting ideas.

good ol' uber-principled lizzie may...

"Green Party Leader Elizabeth May is endorsing the proposed coalition government and says she has spoken with Liberal Leader Stéphane Dion about the possibility of her being appointed to the Senate."
