If the coalition is my early Christmas present, then the exploding Conservative heads with their thrashing and whining constitute the Carolers.
The Facebook group "Canadians Against the Left Coalition" wants to tell us this is an "overthrow" of the government.
I can definitely hear "Oh, come, oh come! Unholy Alliance!" being sung to the tune of "Oh, come, oh, come Emmanuel".
And of course there's the stunningly ignorant complaint that "no one voted for this coalition". Maybe you haven't noticed that there was no "coalition/not coalition" option on your ballot. That's because the potential for coalition has been and always will be a part of our representative parliament.
And there's incredibly hypocritical complaint from pretty much any of these guys that the Liberals are in bed with separatists(Separatists! Separatists! Separatists!). I don't know guys, do you remember when Stephen Harper wanted to get in bed with the separatists to "overthrow" the Martin government in 2004. Fortunately, the Internet remembers. I'm sure you've all got a ready rationalization for why it was okay for Harper but not for Dion.
It's all music to my ears. Even if it doesn't work out, it was worth it just to drive up their collective blood pressure.
