Get a load of this picture of Jack Layton standing in the House as he votes against the throne speech and childishly taunts and gestures toward the Liberals. It really doesn't do the full extent of his sanctimony justice, if you saw reports on the throne speech vote, as he shook his head and preened for the cameras. Burn it into your brains, progressive voters and remember it the next time Jack asks for you to lend him your vote:

Another profile in courage, ladies and gentlemen...
