Do We Have Your Attention Yet, Mr. Prime Minister?

“All these 100,000-plus donors are writing their little cheques because they believe in a cause and – I don't know what's going to happen – but when Stockwell Day got into trouble that was the first really big sign. The money stopped coming in.”(*)

You are a realpolitik kung-fu master, Mr. Harper, and don't think that Canadians don't appreciate a man with a Machiavellian mind. For three years we have amused ourselves with watching you walk the tight-rope so deftly, compromising with your ideological enemies with one side of your mouth while promising the world to your supporters with the other side.

However, a word of caution: we'll only wait so long before we begin to take a hard look at your record and demand that you make good on a promise or two.

Remember upon whom you depend for funding and passionate advocacy come election time, Mr. Harper. Please start delivering on some of those beautiful words that you've spoken over the years lest you find the money well runs dry and you become (*shudder*) the Stockwell Day of 2009.

Do we have your attention yet, Mr. Prime Minister?
