That's a lot of sour grapes

Via Kady.

  • Elections Canada has received a high volume of complaints in recent days as a result of MPs and political parties calling on the public to send information to the agency. More than 31,000 contacts have been initiated with Elections Canada by Canadians. Elections Canada is reviewing these and will take action as appropriate.
  • The Commissioner of Canada Elections has the authority, during periods of high volume, to contract additional resources or call upon other law enforcement agencies, such as the RCMP, to lend assistance and expertise.

So ... Harper! We're doing exactly what you suggested we do. Obedient little sots that we are.

Better that than an embittered whine.*

Speaking of grapes! Even when they're ripe they can do you in. One of the series of great grape con jobs.

And that 31 000 is a growing number, likely representing the active fraction of people who received the calls or observed questionable things. Tip of the ol' iceberg.
