No, this isn’t going to be a rant about the registry; not today. Everybody and their dog has been wondering just what the hell might be going on between Uberdipper Jack! Layton’s ears these days and I have to admit that I’m no exception.
How could this guy possibly want to trot off into an election right now? Is he nuts?

So then the budget comes down, and even Canadian Labour Congress Complainer In Chief Ken Georgetti, of all damn people, says it’s good. Didn’t see THAT one coming, did you?
