I Get By.....

Jeez what a weekend for old blue-eyes. A command performance at the National Arts Centre with the Yo Yo Man [Commanded by Laureen? - Ed], and then watching Denis Coderre kiss up to "the leader" on Tout le Monde en Parle. It doesn't get any better than this. And it's quite a change from last year when I was badly misquoted about it being so rich that bunches of people liked to go to galas.

Now if we could just get the opposition to defeat us on a non confidence vote... I know, I know, Canadians don't want another election, but do we have to endure another six months of blathering - not from the politicians, from the media - about "now it's the NDP's turn" etc etc ad nauseam.

Look people, parliamentary pensions and Crouton's election financing law have put the opposition in a real bind. The Bloc will support us until their pensions click in. The NDP will support us because, hey, why take the risk of losing some seats and all those sweet taxpayer dollars that go with them? And the Liberals will support us because, frankly, they are still dead broke. Why can't the working press get this? Is it because most of them are Pierre Trudeau Liberals and because they just can't face the facts?

It's a weird old world, but I get by with a little help from my friends across the aisle.
