That sound you hear, is Bob Rae...

...tap-dancing on his desk...bye-bye libs

"In an interview Monday, the former Liberal prime minister dismissed suggestions that a merger now – when the Liberals have been reduced to a third-party rump and New Democrats are on the rise – would amount to an NDP takeover of his once-mighty party."

What chances a merger?

Alas it is a perfect fit. They are birds of a feather.

Why would the NDP be interested in a merger now when they are in a position to replace the Liberals entirely? When the positions were reversed the Liberals had no interest in a merger.

Funny isn't it, that when the Liberals are the ones on the ropes, "elder statesmen" within the Liberal Party like Cretch are so keen and interested in merger talks.

It is about survival, not merger. The Liberals in Canada are about to go the way of the Liberals in the UK, and the NDP is about to replace them as the "Labour" Party, Why would they care to dilute their party by mergering with Liberals when they can just wipe them out and take their place?

Chretien is the loud and often obnoxious cell user who insists on sharing his boring, inane life for all to hear. Wonder what is driving this nostalgia for Chretien and his "wisdom"(ahem). The annoying ringtone of Chretien's musing should be ignored by the few remaining Liberals in the grocery aisle. Cheers.

So we would have one "party" (defunct except for the memories) plus another party (flirting with Marxism and Separatatism for Quebec) giving a mix that is more stable.
Um....how is it that negative one plus negative one gives a positive.....in my book it's a negative 2 if I remember my grade 9 integers correctly.
Seems like a "proof" to me....or; put another way, what do you get when you cross a zombie and Frankenstein?

How much do Libs hate Rae? Enough to destroy a party that's been around since Confederation.

Most of us would take the hint...
