Dalton McGuinty quits. Ontario yawns.

Big news from the land of politics tonight: the premier of our lovely province of Ontario, Dalton McGuinty, has stepped down as leader of the provincial Liberal Party and as premier. He's also prorogued the legislature, saying the opposition is not allowing the government to function.

Fun, fun, fun. All that's left now is for tout la gang to confirm an election date. The geek-journalist in me loves this stuff. Don't you?

Democracy rules!

Speaking from South of the Border, Carmi, I don't.

(I realize what's liberal up there might be different from what's liberal down here.)

Down here, liberals have been right about every single major policy decision that's come down the pike.

Yet they're the most reviled people in politics...because the wrong decisions have rewarded the right people, over and over.

My response is a continuous rotation of "love it" / "hate it" / "rolling my eyes at it" / "yawn".

He quit the way Lance Armstrong quit - thinking it could stop an avalanche of manure - on his watch we had one billion dollar disaster after another - give back your pension -
