Big news day all around. No stories of kitties being rescued from trees today.

To top it all off, the current Canadian government will, for the first time in history, be found in contempt of parliament.

If it's not American, then it doesn't matter. Or so feel some Americans.

That was politically incorrect, wasn't it?

What I find wonderfully amusing is that Peter Harper just finished going to great lengths to modify protocol to force everyone to refer to today's government in print as "The Harper Government" instead of just "The Federal Government". Now this contempt incident will go down in history as "The Harper Government."

Note: This isn't a pro Liberal rant or pro NDP. I'm an equal opportunity political ranter.

You and me both...

I had never considered that interesting side effect to the 'Harper government' moniker

The Libyan conflict has all kinds of interesting fall-out. Slamming Putin is a dangerous thing.

-----

5:54pm Dmitry Medvedev, the Russian president, has slammed prime minister Vladimir Putin's comments on military action against Libya as "unacceptable", in the most public clash yet between Russia's ruling tandem.

Putin earlier Monday denounced the UN resolution allowing military action on Libya as resembling a "medieval call to crusade", in one of his most virulent diatribes against the West in years.
