Thomas Mulcair was on the long wave with Evan Solomon this morning.
I, for one, was impressed.
As he chopped a number of Republican/Conservative frames to bits.
I realize that there may be issues of real politick that could wear a little thin over the longterm here.
But I truly believe, at least for the moment, that we do need someone to draw a deep, definitive line in the sand so that people can see where we are going if we stay on the Conservative Party of Canada's side of the oil-soaked and completely unregulated beach where there will be no lifeguards, but there will be corporations renting towels and selling time shares for swimming rights.
And I even liked the way Mulcair turned Solomon's crap closer about the penny into a serious statement about something that matters (and, in addition, gave credit where credit was due).
