In this post, I extraploated on James Morton's musing on whether or not Raitt-Gate was a ministerial leak or a mistake. I asked a bit of a rhetorical question becuase I felt Raitt was sent on a suicide mission.
I expected Raitt to step down because I am proud to say that it would never have occured to me to allow a 26 year old to take the fall for something that is my responsibility. Beyond this prima facie evidence that I am ill suited to serve as one of Harper's ministers, it also means we must ponder on the morale of Conservative staffers cum scape goats everywhere.
Update (4:42 Bat Time): Warren Kinsella further catalogues the reasons for low Tory staffer morale. The Langevin Block had better mix up a lot more kool-aid to keep the winglets in line.Recommend this Post
