Bernier Out, Emerson In

Took long enough.

Amongst other things, the appointment of Emerson demonstrates how awfully shallow Harper’s talent pool is. The former Liberal is now Minister of International Trade, Minister for the Pacific Gateway and the Vancouver-Whistler Olympics, AND interim Minister of Foreign Affairs.

Update: Oh, by the way, here’s the “narrative” for the Blogging Douchebags Tories to follow (via Stephen Taylor) — The Dear Leader promptly dealt with the issue while holding the line on “fabrications” and pointless “fish tales” of the opposition. Janke and others are totally down with the meme, of course. And look, over there… a shiny rock! Um, I mean, Jason Kenney.

Update 2: You have to love this line from Bernier to Couillard at the outset of their relationship as reported in The Star this morning: “I can’t switch girlfriends like I change shirts, so you have to be my official girlfriend for at least a year, in spite of what might happen between us.” Yowza.
