Just spun 
(en francais)

I have spent a fair amount of time over the last week reading various post election analysis articles and posts from all sides of the political spectrum. One in particular struck me as beyond the pale. Digging a little deeper on the authors' site, he is supposedly a journalist.

Politics Unspun - Appearances to the contrary, the Liberal Party was the big winner on election night

"The 124 seats the Harper Party won does not denote victory. It is at best a probationary governing lease, granted solely because Ontario voters were so disgusted by Liberal scandals. "

"When the next election comes, likely within 12 months given the new government’s intellectual gene pool, Harper will have to account for things like the Weyrich connection, and hypocrisy toward democracy in the Middle East. No sooner had the Palestinians held elections as was demanded of them, than Harper dismissed the result. Not even sworn in and Harper commits his first act of stupidity. That must be some kind of record."
For a self professed specialist in Middle East and Canadian Politics, he manages to exhibit a shallow knowledge of both in one article. Not a bad feat. "Harper Party" or my personal favourite, "given the new government's intellectual gene pool"?

Mr. Felton might want to take a few minutes and read some real political analysis.

Edit: after a little Google work, I now understand the above article. This is an example of Mr. Felton's journalistic work.
