Revenge of the wingnuts

Harper forgets why he won. Predictable Toronto Star, I know. But I agree. And a good point is made here:
Surrendering the ethical high-ground is risky, as is the willingness to put hardliners, including Justice Minister Vic Toews, in jobs sensitive enough to alienate the moderate voters Harper will need to move from minority to majority. (emphasis added)
Such "hardliner" cabinet choices flew under the radar yesterday, lost in all the attention given to Emerson and Fortier. They will likely prove to be the more controversial ones. Just wait 'till Vic gets going on gay marriage and judicial appointments, that's a show no one will want to miss...
