Through the looking glass 
(en francais)

Election predictions are all the rage these days, but they aren't the only sort being made.
If Harper wins, where go Tory bloggers?
There has been a lot of blog discussion about what the Conservative bloggers will be like if Harper wins. Will they become ecstatic in the great white north? Will they start dropping off? Will they be conciliatory?

HANDLING DEFEAT

While I still believe the outcome of this election is going to be different than the polls are predicting, I’m realistic enough to allow for any possibility. Because of this, I’d like to lay out a plan for progressive bloggers to follow should Stephen Harper win either a minority or majority government.

The first thing progressives need to remember is that it’s only politics and not a life or death struggle between the forces of light and darkness. That type of thinking needs to be left where it belongs; in the Kool-Aid drinking, conservative camp. In politics, one needs to look at the long view and focus on the long term goals progressives have laid out for a better Canada. And progressives need to realize that it was inevitable that the conservatives would eventually win one.

Educational reads, both of them. I guess I should go mix up a batch of purple Kool-Aid and prepare my gloat quotes.

On the other hand, maybe I'll just go back to working on:
