Grab yourself a beer and some popcorn, and sit back and watch as the Liberals tie themselves into knots.
...trouble is brewing once more, as Liberal support continues to slide and some of Mr. Rae’s advocates openly agitate for a debate about a coalition with the NDP.
It couldn't happen to a nicer bunch.
More from the NP story: My good buddy Scott Reid had some thoughts on this:
“This is a merger by any other name… A slippery slope to sacrificing our political identity. It would amount to a total betrayal of the Liberal party’s history, identity and success,”
“Would we run 100 fewer candidates? Would we abandon Saskatchewan and Manitoba to the NDP and ask Ralph [Goodale] to step down? I think the notion is absurd. The only person who advocated it was Jean Chrétien on CBC but I have a hard time believing Jean Chrétien thinks the Liberal party shouldn’t run 308 candidates at the next election.”
The party that is more united than it has been in a generation has a funny way of showing it.
UD: Watch Scott Reid in action here @ the Iceman's place.
