Meet the new boss...

Same as the old boss.

I feel sorry for everyone who fell for all that "vote for change" crap. You didn't really believe it, did you?

David Emerson must feel a little unwanted these days. Even his own (new) party thinks he should do the right thing, and bail out. Not to mention his constituents, who are promising to absolutely slay the guy at the ballot box if he dares run again in his riding.

Maybe he'll just end up in the Senate, like Michael Fortier. Hard to believe there wasn't one more suitable candidate for the cabinet among the other 100 MPs.

And if that wasn't enough, to cap off the first week Stephen Harper appoints a parliamentary secretary to La Francophonie that can't speak French. Classic. I can't wait until the gay marriage stuff hits the fan...

    There may be no legal recourse here because he was elected consistent with his campaign but there may be other legal alternatives.

    One could start a David Emerson blog so that everyone is constantly reminded about what kind of man he is. He needs to be reminded every day about this.

    People could parade in front of his house with a sign demanding he call a by-election. This would keep it in the public eye. The press would love it. Anyone for camping out?

    Put pressure on him and his immediate family. If his kids complain enough he will do the right thing for them. Everyone has a vulnerable spot.

    The people now have the power of the Internet.

    Any other ideas?


  2. I will camp out with you in spirit, as I'm a few thousand kilometres away. :)

    I don't think it will be hard to keep this in the news, and with a minority government we're going to see an election sooner than later.

    It will interesting to see how badly he gets pasted next time.
