Bernier Put Out Of His Misery! (and ours)


Maxime Bernier has officially resigned! It's the only thing he successfully accomplished during his time in cabinet. Now he can spend more quality time at biker bars. Bitchin'!

He'll be replaced by the unelected David Emerson (Foreign Affairs), and the vacuous Josee Verner (Francophonie). Emerson will only be appointed on an interim basis, so there's still hope for Rob Anders to complete the Circle of Embarassment at Foreign Affairs. Fingers crossed!!

Well, I guess one has to be very careful where ones leaves their briefs LOL

Assuming of course that one is intelligent enough to read them (Bernier), or classy enough to wear them (Couillard). :)

The Circle of Embarassment at Foreign Affairs starts at the top. One of the most ideological and least reported policy shifts of the Harper government has been in foreign policy (although Martin was pretty weak in this area a well). No wonder he's afraid to run for a security council seat.

Still, I'm impressed that the PM himself takes advice from your blog. Perhaps next you could write about Kyoto?

MD - Still, I'm impressed that the PM himself takes advice from your blog.

Does that mean that Rob Anders will be the next Minister of Foreign Affairs? Sweet Jesus....what have I done?

If our PM is taking advice from a guy who uses Fletch as his avatar, we're in big trouble! :)

Well, there's Kenny and Baird left - now you won't find lady troubles there.

Murasaki Shikibu, author of The Tale of Genji. Most likely written between 1008 and 1010, the largest portion consists of descriptive passages of the birth of Empress Shōshi's (Akiko) children, with smaller vignettes describing life at the Imperial court and relations between other ladies-in-waiting and court writers such as Izumi Shikibu, Akazome Emon and Sei Shōnagon.

The work was written in kana, a newly developed writing system that brought vernacular Japanese from a spoken language to a written language. The form of the diary is unlike contemporary diaries or journals—some events are developed with much more detail than others. The work includes short vignettes, poetry in the form of waka, and an epistolary section.
