Just what we need, another inquiry!

You have to hand it to Canada’s Soiled Government (previously known as Canada’s Slightly Used Government, previously known as Canada’s New Government, updated to reflect recent events); they are certainly teaching us a thing or two about how the Republican political game can be played in this country as well as south of the border. I mean, really, putting an avowed separatist in charge of an unnecessary inquiry commissioned by an unelected Conservative bagman to review spending practices of a previous Liberal government in the middle of an election campaign in all but name is either a brilliant strategic move or a new political low even by Stephen Harper’s already gutter-level standards.

Can the “outing” of the spouse of some unfriendly political opponent be far behind?
