As I got done quaffing rye number three and my wandering eye settled down I noticed on the big screen M Doucette leader of the BQ step up to the podium for his congratulatory speech. The French flowed ever elegantly from the separatist’s mouth as my attention shifted focus before the translator kicked in to the latest polling numbers at the bottom of the big screen: Liberals 134, Conservatives 90, BQ 56. “Hmm,” I thought, “What if Harper had lassoed those separatists into the fold?” Well, I figured, the Conservatives might have a chance.”

As I turned over to ask the guy standing next to me his opinion on my little hypothesis he bellowed out at that big screen, “Speak English!” My answer came before I could ask. Maybe the guy has ESP or maybe there is no room for French separatists on the right.
