Harperites... Non-insane decisions... Urgh, give me a minute.
One last question, do you think the next general election will see further growth by the NDP, the Liberals, or a further splitting of the vote that allowed Dougie to get dug-in? I feel like another reason this is untenable is that, even if the Conservatives try to blame every single bad decision on him, the premier is the face of the party; and the party is the arm of the premier. One of the reasons I'm very optimistic about local races, even if I'm generally pessimistic about national races in America...
... Is that locally, there is a frenetic anti-Republican energy I haven't seen, ever. I'm still not seeing great youth turnout, but a family of upwardly mobile middle-class types voted D downballot without any encouragement from me; maybe knowing me made the door open, but when I asked 'oh, have you voted' and got a torrent of complaints about Republican mismanagement... Well, it's heartening. At least locally.

Can we make this the scrolling marquee for 2018?
