The Unite the Right talk is back:
Merger talks between the Conservatives and the Canadian Alliance have made a death-bed recovery and could result in an historic deal before the end of the week, sources said Wednesday.
I have to admit that every time I hear the phrase “unite the right”, it really makes me wonder . . . I mean, what exactly is right-wing about the Tory platform lately?
But the real question is, what will the resulting party be? Will it follow the Alliance on foreign policy and the Tories on domestic social issues, or vice-versa?
It kinda reminds me of the old joke of how in heaven, the Swiss run the banks, the French do the cooking, the Germans make the cars, and the the British run the police. In hell, the Swiss make the cars, the French run the banks, the Germans run the police, and the British do the cooking . . .
