Good Post Mr. Morton...

Loved James' post "The Sky Is Falling..."

To be sure, there IS a desire to kill off the Liberals...

For the Conservatives, it means they can push out of the way a party that stands for the majority of Canadians, who are moderates. Without a moderate "middle party" Canada would swing like a pendulum between right and "left" as in the USA (I put "left" in quotes, because in the USA there is no party of the left)...

For the NDP, it means no-one to run from the "left" to govern from the middle - and marginalize their party to 4th party status...

For the mainstream media (MSM), it would make things simpler to understand and report. You see, the days of journalism school grads is over. Many reporters are nothing more than runway models/ex-jocks and used car salespeople who wanted a bit of continued spotlight. The MSM is just too stupid to understand the intricacies of a multi-party system - so they would rather just have to report on "black and white", "with us, or against us", etc., etc. It's a LOT easier filing a report from a simple script of "right vs. left" (you don't even need to leave your desk) than it is to actually do some research and go out and get 4 or 5 differing opinions on an issue.

Thought provoking, isn't it?

And, yup. The Liberal Party is NOT going anywhere - and certainly not "merging" with any other party. Sorry suckers. This party WILL be the next government.

Denial runs deep... Barring some sort of major scandal that tars / brands Harper personally (which was why he threw Guergis under the bus), there's no way the Libs will form the next gov't ...unless they make some sort of radical change, be it a new leader (I nominate a woman, like Martha Hall Findlay, to be a consensus builder), or a promise to bring in a new system or rep. (some form of proportionality), or, yes, some form of coalition or accord.
