So, right out of the gate, we have:
Stephen Harper, somehow not entirely screwing up setting off the longest election campaign in living memory,
Tom Mulcair, faceplanting right out of the gate by letting Stephen Harper answer more questions than he did,
Elizabeth May, literally dedicating her campaign to an ex-PC Cabinet Minister’s memory, which perhaps brings her own past service to Conservative governments into question but more feels vaguely creepy than anything else,
Gilles Duceppe, talking about the power of youth in the midst of his ninth campaign as leader, and
Justin Trudeau, who intends to react to the whole thing after the lights have been turned off and everybody who goes home.
For fucks sakes, people, can we get our shit together? It’s day one.
