[personal profile] piranha

turn the leaves into unrecognizable red lumps. they're caused by manzanita leafgall aphids, tamalia coweni. i know very little about plant diseases, but i can google with the best of them.

thinking of diseases brings me to harper, a gall on the body politic.

harper is less smart than i thought. his lashing out against the "separatists" in the coalition will likely set him back in quebec in the long run. i don't understand what he's thinking; maybe his ego is really that large? he miscalculated, first with calling an election, and then with pushing the opposition to the tipping point by adding insult to injury in threatening their funding on top of the usual blackmail he's served them up by making every vote a vote of confidence. i would have thought once they called his bluff was a good time for some conciliation, and actual statesmanship in governing, but no, he's barrelling right along as if he had a huge mandate.

what hybris. 37.6% is no mandate. it means you need to consider the opposition in your lawmaking, because that's what the people have decided.
