Just to Piss Off Media "Pundits"

Just to piss off the media pundits, I hope Mr. Dion does not step down on Monday...

Rather, I hope we see Mr. Dion, Mr. Layton, and Mr. Duceppe emerge from a door (watch Duffy choke on his morning triple sausage n' egger), and announce a new center-left alliance to govern the country for the next short while, while we sort out the mess the Harper Cons have created with their Bush-like wide open NeoCon economic system... 

Could you imagine the looks on the media's faces?  Could you imagine Harper coughing up a fur-ball?  An alliance of leaders who CARE about ordinary Canadians - not Big Oil industrialists and the American Lumber Lobby.  With the Bloc dropping their "sovereignist" demands, and focusing instead on the issues that REALLY matter to Canadians: stable economy, jobs, environment, development, infrastructure.  These are issues all 3 parties can agree upon.  One key platform item can be conceded to each party, and a "loose coalition" can be created.

Could the 3 leaders really prove they care about Canadians and the country long enough to do this?  Probably too much to expect from this bunch.  I don't know why... If I really believed in what I was preaching, I could compromise just enough to ensure that a lot of my ideas are adopted.  If the alliance is only temporary, it would still serve as a severe warning to the Conservatives:  If we don't like what you do, the parties representing the majority of Canadians WILL assume control.

YES YES YES. I too Am holding on to the faint hope that all three leaders would walk out on the stage. It would be the greatest moment in the history of Canadian politics. Alas there is far to much partisan hatred between Libs and the NDP to make such an obvious and awesome move.Dion doesn't need to step down, instead he could be Prime Minister. Everyone in the press room would do a spit-take. Coffee everywhere, right-wingers freaking. It would be the best day ever.
