thugs, politics

In Honor of the Canadian Election

...in Which Stephen Harper has well and truly earned his title of Prime Minister...

I have to ask the obvious question: How long can he keep it?

Introducing the:

Stephen Who? Poll
Will Alberta's Second Prime Minister Last As Long As the First?

(Okay, so Stephen Harper wasn't born in Alberta like Joe Clark, but he's firmly adopted it as his native province. We'll go with it.)

It's really simple, actually. How long will Stephen Harper hold together his happy minority government, and will it last as long as previous Albertan Prime Minister Joe Clark (Joe who?) managed to keep his government together? (Which, for those not in the know of Canadian politics, Joe's government lasted for nine months. As Will Ferguson said in Bastards and Boneheads, that's shorter than some pregnancies.)

Place all bets here. :)
