More strategery

In case you haven't had enough of it the past few days, there's more speculation about the political gamesmanship to come over the next few weeks from Lawrence Martin today.

I kind of like his scenario number two... don't give Harper an opening. Put the onus entirely on him to attempt to manufacture a crisis in the face of expressions of intent to make the minority parliament work. He may have to back down. And if he doesn't, he'll pay whatever price the voters are willing to mete out.

Martin also tells us we should be very afraid of the massive, excellent, well-planned, uber awesome Conservative negative campaign coming our way. Can it really live up to the hype? Nothing these guys have done to date has lived up to their billing. It will truly be an exception if it does.
