Crisis postponed

Rick Mercer has summarized this past week’s political excitement (and he did a good job too). He concludes:

Meanwhile, this great democracy of ours has ceased to function. We have no government because they just can’t get along. It is a mess that defies comprehension but has one simple solution.

We need one more strange-bedfellows event: a historic press conference at which Stephen Harper and Stéphane Dion apologize to their country and then to their parties. And then they resign — no questions please.

Because, quite frankly, they deserve one another — and Canada deserves better.

Even I, who mistakenly thought Dion was the best of a dozen leadership choices (who better to win back the trust of Quebeckers than one of their own?), would be happy to expedite his departure if he took Harper with him.
