Some days it is hard to be the Head Harper Hagiographer

While reading this blogpost by Don Martin I was reminded of an old film clip of a triplane bouncing on the ground trying vainly to take off until the wings fell off. Try as he might, Harper's second biggest fan tries to convince us that the anti-prorogue fuss will blow over but can't quite get the words pieced together right.
But is it possible for polls to swing this wildly this quickly on a sleepy issue like Parliament on extended hiatus while the government’s response to the Haitian earthquake crisis has been exemplary?
One of the most confused editorials you will ever read.

This makes Doubtin' Donnie's task all the harder.

To begin, contrary to the view that Facebook is entirely youth driven, just under half of those who completed the survey were 45 years of age or older. Thirty-four per cent were aged 31 to 44 and 16 per cent answered that they were aged 18 to 30. Not a single person who opted to take the survey was aged 12 to 18.

Perhaps the most interesting part of the survey was the fact that 96 per cent of the participants said they voted in the last federal election.

There isn't much dignity in being a cheerleader for Harper. Martin should quit while he still has a shred or two left.
