Blah Blah Blah on Iraq to start off the brawdcast.
Finally at 1717 Newman intros Julie Van Dusen on Mayrand's Mutiny.
All party leaders are demanding that the law be followed (except Taliban Jack Layton who knows whats best for Muslims more than the Muslims do.) Even the CAIR is distressed that it has arisen as an issue. Mayrand is causing mischief here and should be reprimanded if not fired.
NEWS - Mayrand informs that veiled women will be asked to unveil. Anyone who refuses will be allowed to present two pieces of ID and take an oath or be refused a ballot.
Blah Blah Blah from Keith Boag on Afghanada Report from OZ - Nothing new from down under.
34 minutes in and nothing, not even in passing, anything interesting.
Might be interesting to see what comes from this...
QC byelections . . . Michel Auger of RCI - Report that CPC has a good chance in Roberval. Ste. Hyacinthe, likely going BQ. Outrement, 4 way race - should go Liberal - will be a test of Dion's leadership. Really chilly for Dion in Quebec.
School funding in Ontario. McGuinty says one of the most important elections in Ontario history. Daltie has his shirt sleeves rolled up telling kids that they need to work harder because he's not funding their religious schools. Looks like John Tory is on the Timbit Diet again.
Kady O'Malley from Macleans on political blogs.
Thousands of Blogs - 3-400 that have readers. Here I'm live blogging Newman, while he's reporting on me live blogging on him ... Newman sounds like he's in a conversation about witchcraft in Borneo.
Newman plugs the abbreviated version of Politics on at 730... don't know how they could abbreviate it any more than this show was abbreviated. A horrid, dull, cheerless, uninformative hour. Sorta like a Stephane Dion speech.
0/10 except for the blogging part.
