That Dangerous Bundle of Laughs 

[Shotgun cross-post]

Jack Layton's just full of laughs, isn't he?

On Quebec separatism:
"I think that we've moved beyond those debates. [...] We don't think that's a direction the country or Quebecers want to go. People are seized with an optimism about the future and possibilities that opens the door to new levels of collaboration, co-operation and flexibility in our federation."
I totally agree. I mean, nobody's still dwelling on sleeping dogs like the Clarity Act, right?

And watch out, Stephen Harper! Jack is onto you and your schemes to make a pact with the devil!
"We would have a Conservative party that wants to take the country apart joining with a party that actively wants to split the country apart. [...] How can that be good for building the Canada that Canadians want?"
Of course, the NDP would think of no such thing... ...right?
He suggested the combined force of two parties could pose a formidable push for left-wing issues like child care and stopping Canada's support for missile defence.
All this would be absolutely hilarious if it wasn't so dangerously close to actually coming true. Maybe Paul Martin is right: a vote for the NDP is a vote for the Conservatives, since the NDP itself seemed to have become the scary Conservative bogeyman they've been screaming about.
