For example, there is the buzz about a possible Cabinet shuffle - always great political fodder for those who love to speculate. Rona Ambrose is unlikely to retain her Environment portfolio if that happens. Who will get the nod to replace her?
Then there's Warren Kinsella's amusing little column in today's Post, "The Viral Campaign against Stephane Dion". I just wouldn't know where to begin with this one. According to Mr. Kinsella, it seems that the lyrically-challenged Conservative bloggers have the awesome power to control MSM:
Conservative bloggers -- most of whom couldn't be counted upon to recite the lyrics of O Canada without professional help -- then took up the refrain, regurgitating the anti- Dion talking points with glee.
At that point, the so-called mainstream media had no option but to cover the story, and force Dion to respond.
Did you hear that Canada? We control the press! Merry Christmas Stephen Harper!!! That little tidbit will serve him well in the next election.
What else? Oh yeah! A glimpse into the rationale behind Dalton McGuinty's 25% raise hike just before Christmas:
Sources told CanWest News Service, however, that Mr. McGuinty's change of heart came after Liberal caucus members revolted and demanded a salary hike in keeping with the latest recommendations of the province's integrity commissioner, which reviews MPP's remuneration.
Don't you just love the altruistic dedication and integrity of Ontario politicians?
Of course, I'm not really doing a post here today. Just thinking out loud. Thanks for listening.
