Revolution Prorogued! Jean falls for Harper's seduction

We are outraged. Not because we were a fan of the fractious coalition of the NDP, Grits and Bloc, nor because Her Excellency failed to use her reserve powers in the most minimal of ways. We are outraged because the revolution is over (suspended, but really over). It's so anti-climactic after 8 days of constitutionally driven suspense. And while our government now gets seven weeks of holidays, the rest of us have to go back to our pre-revolutionary lives.

Sigh, we'll be back with more soon.
