Just three short notes today:
Kudos to openly lesbian Conservative Senator Nancy Ruth for speaking out against the recent handling of the Tom Lukiwski homophobic affair. I wonder what gay cabinet minister John Baird will say during that caucus discussion.
I seem to have underestimated the damage likely caused to Obama's campaign by his recent "guns and religion" speech. We'll have to see if his damage control can stave off a major loss next week in Pennsylvania.
And finally, I'll give credit where credit is due. This was a good decision by the Harperites.
As a reader kindly pointed out, Senator Nancy Ruth ran twice for the Ontario PCs in the early 1990s (when she was known as Nancy Jackman). I remember those races well, particularly the 1993 St. George-St. David by-election in which she lost to Liberal Tim Murphy. Please forgive me for not connecting the dots quicker between Nancy Jackman and Nancy Ruth...lol
