Captain's Quarters comments on a startling power play by the Liberal Prime Minster to preserve his party's hold on power (hat tip: Instapundit):
Paul Martin has bought the support of Conservative MP Belinda Stronach with a ministerial position, changing the balance of power in Parliament and possibly saving the Liberal Party's grip on power. Martin induced Stronach to cross the aisle this morning by making her the Minister of Human Resources:
Captain's Quarters also observes that:

MacKay won't respond to press inquiries at the moment, and who could blame him? The dissipation of this relationship could hardly have been more public and more embarassing for him. Not only did his girlfriend leave him, she left him on a moment's notice for Paul Martin, of all people, and for a cushy government position.

I think every American man can feel Mr. MacKay's pain. And despite the fact that Mr. MacKay is a member of the Conservative Party, I think that Americans of all political beliefs will agree that there is only one thing we can do to soften the blow.

You guessed it: we get Senator Bill Frist to lengthen debate on judicial filibusters in the Senate for a few days to keep a certain New York Senator heavily engaged in D.C., then send Bill Clinton to Ottawa. Give Mr. Clinton 6 nights and 7 days at a four star hotel, a extra $100,000 expense account and a "no questions asked" policy from the American media and I'm sure he can help Mr. MacKay get through these next few critical votes with a positive attitude.
