It's probably too late for New Democrats to reclaim their party but at least they need to grasp how degraded it has become under their leader, Tommy Angry Beard.
They can start with two terrific articles from Canadian Dimension.
First up: Yves Engler's fine piece, "The 'N' in NDP Now Stands for NeoLiberal."
And next there's Richard Swift's, "Death of a Candidacy."
Tom Mulcair in completing what Jack Layton began has now Blairified the New Democratic Party. The New Dem faithful are clinging to a delusion that their party remains social democrat, somewhere to the left of centre. That's nonsense.
What do Mike Duffy and Tom Mulcair have in common? 1. They both chose parties they thought would float their boat. 2. Neither one of them truly did their respective parties any good.
