Eve of destruction?
Well, it's all over but the crying, table-pounding and bitter fingerpointing, though given the current poll numbers I suspect we will be doing this all over again with a new cast of characters within a year or two. The Liberals seem to have bounced back over the weekend, at least according to the Jan. 22 SES/CPAC nightly tracking poll which gives us the following:

Conservative Party of Canada: 33
Liberal Party of Canada: 30
New Democratic Party: 22
Bloc Quebecois: 9
Green Party of Canada: 5

Margin of error: 5.3%

This means the Liberals have bounced back, taking support from the Conservatives and the Bloc, and have momentum going into election day, so we may have a horse race yet. I'll be watching the returns come in at the Canadian Embassy in Tokyo and then working the night shift at the Ministry of Truth, so if things get slow there could be some blogging done.

Thanks for the birthday wishes and kind words, Rev., and have fun watching the results at the embassy! I've never managed to be in a foreign land during an election, but it sounds like it'll be a good party!
