Why did we just have an election?

15 October 2008

After all the posturing and complaining that the last government was dysfunctional, we have a new government that may prove to be just as dysfunctions.  Dion will probably step down after the poor showing in the results.  If not, he will surely have an internal fight on his hands.  The struggle to find a new leader will leave the party in turmoil and focused on navel gazing.  Harper, on the other hand, has now won two minority governments, and must be mad as hell.  I’m sure he will call another election in about 18 months and we’ll do this all again.  So much for the “elections every four years”.
