One-day superficial issue (day 4)

Lawrence Martin nails it on the head and asks: is it just the natural Tory way?

Harper has squandered the good will of the people and the media. He must now try and implement the most controversial elements of his 5-point plan from a position of weakness, and his opponents sense it.

Harper needs to admit the mistake and deal with Emerson and Fortier. This isn't a "one-day superficial" issue.

This truly has become Harper's Miers.

I'm feeling like Methusala here. I predicted Harper would have to go outside, hiring talent that he didn't have in a caucus where the only common thread is they all go to church (and I'm being serious).
Harper, is being managed in the backround by long time Conservative party guru's, whose wisdom seems to be prevailing - for the moment. Still, there are mostly featherweights at the helm and I'm sure Bush's dogs are salivating, straining at the leash, ready to eat them alive. Cover your ass, Canada!

Here is a petition for Mr. Harper’s unelected friend, Michal Fortier, to resign his senior cabinet post until he runs and wins in a by-election for a seat in the House.
