"They're all talking about Jack Layton on an equal footing with Martin, Harper and Duceppe in the midst of a scandal that involves Liberal corruption, the possible fall of a government and national unity issues. That in itself is a victory. The fact that they all say nice things is gravy."Oooh.. I feel good things coming Jack's way. It's enough to make a socialist's heart flutter.
Come on, it's about time the NDP had a chance at the big table. Prime Minister Layton!
Addendum: I should say that the reason Jack's speech turned me off was that it had a "laundry list" sound to it - rather than talk about sponsorship, the NDP wants to talk about all the things we think are important. What can I say, it sounded silly to me, and like a cartoon version of a left-wing politician. If it plays well, though, I will be the first to say congratulations!
