Scott and I got back together after a bit of a hiatus–it was good to get back–and discuss the results of the Canadian elections. Click the two links above for our conversation.
The analysis grows out of our respective articles at Culture11 which compared how Canadian conservatives may or may not provide a blueprint for the GOP to regain power. Scott’s article here. Mine here. I nabbed the Canadian Flag pic’d above that accompanied our articles (and that I really dug with the blue on the Maple Leaf).**
We had a slight technical glitch, which was fun, you’ll hear.
Also towards the end as we are discussing conservative commentators, (I think) I referred to Kathleen Lopez, when I meant Kathryn Jean Lopez (K-Lo) from The Corner, author of the following brilliant kernel of wisdom:
Palin didn’t need Greek columns. People react to her because they believe she represents what the Greeks established.
So while I slipped on her name, I stand by my categorization of her work.
**For the Americans, in Canada (like Britain), the left is red and the right is blue, the reverse of the US.
