One Damn Thing After Another


What's the Rush?

Andrew Coyne pretty much nails where Martin has gone wrong:
And that's the real source of Mr. Martin's grief: not the fickleness of the press gallery, but his own needless, cynical rush to call a spring election. Suppose, instead of signalling to everyone that he intended to drop the writ just as soon as partisan calculation advised, he had given himself a year to set his own stamp upon the government: time enough to devise and set a course for the next several years, to demonstrate his honesty and competence, to lay out his vision, to earn a mandate. Suppose, further, he had declared that was his timetable.
