While I offer no comment on the generalizations made about "The Left" by Wretchard here (ÞReynolds), it is absurd to use the Canadian political crisis to draw them.
What characterizes much of the Left today as exemplified by behavior from George Galloway to Paul Martin is the increasing necessity to maintain their position By Any Means Necessary.
No. Political ideology has no relevance to this fooferaw. Nice to see furriners taking an interest, though.
