He claimed to be in possession of a report prepared by a ‘U.S. source,’ outlining the activities and whereabouts of Liberal Leader Michael Ignatieff in the weeks and months leading to the American invasion of Iraq in 2003

I do think, I really really do think, Sparky! I mean, the real untold story? I feel like an idiot for reading the fake untold story this whole time. Thanks a lot PW!

Not that many care, but for those interested in the phenomenon of separatism and sovereignty movements within relatively stable states, the Scottish version of the Bloc won a majority government in the Parlamaid na h-Alba. In a mixed-member proportional representation system, no less.

My election-catch-up meanderings brought me across a Liberal Party video proving once and for all that Stephen Harper aired an ad that kinda resembled a Tim Pawlenty (ed note - tea-partier, eeks!) ad in everything but content. The top comment, with no less than 57 up thumbs, queried: "And how is this´╗┐ vid going to help me with understanding what changes the liberal party is about?!" Given that all academics agree on the preeminent probative value of anecdotal evidence, particularly anecdotal evidence found in YouTube comment boards, I believe Mr. grenier70 has definitively confirmed the thrust of PW's thesis.

Try gazing at myself in two mirrors, Blues. The first one became exhausted capturing so much pure brilliance, so I decided to lighten its load. A sign of my unending compassion and innovative problem solving skills, you wonder? That's for others to say...

Hey everyone. Sorry I've been really busy for the past year or so, but I'm back for now. Hope I didn't miss anything. So when are those Liberals going to bring down this woefully anti-democratic, economy-destroying Harper minority already? Bet your bottom dollar that the Red Machine will make some significant inroads, maybe even a minority government, as long as the NDP doesn't get in their way (snicker).

I've said many times that in this time period, and in this society I'm 64.

Wait, do we have you on loan from another society in another period? Because that would explain so much.

I'm in my mid twenties, thank you very much.

And I assumed Sir Francis was older, given his penchant for scolding me when I've been behaving particularly childish and for correcting my grammar, which I swear he does on purpose just to embarrass me in front of company. Now, if he'd just lose his temper more often and make inappropriate jokes to my female friends when he was drunk, he'd be the online father I never had.
