Quote of the day, Canadian content edition

"Mulroney was so far up Reagan’s backside that Thatcher kept running into him."

- Paul Tomblin

Added later. Timothy Burke does run a close second with the following entry on adopting the tactics of the right, which though written at Swarthmore at least sounds Canadian:

[T]he only way to win a rigged game is to play fair and hope that the onlookers will eventually notice who cheats and who does not.

I wish Burke were right, but I fear he's not. I am also reminded that shortly after the 2004 election, he suggested that the Democratic Party pick a direction: libertarian-lite, or Christian Democrat. It was an interesting thesis, but pretty much guaranteed to lose, IMO. And that kind of speculation in public is not helpful.
