Here's your quick "table-setting" for the Harper/Flaherty Budget.
Harper: "We want to keep people employed, and let those who still have jobs keep more of what they earn."
Ignatieff: "Jack Layton's an idiot. We'll decide what to do after we actually READ the budget. No news until Wednesday."
Layton: "We don't care what the budget says, Harper's a lying jerk and he won't do what he says anyway."
Duceppe: "Harper is a jerk to the media and doesn't care about the arts and young offenders..." (huh? Gilles, do you even know what it is we're talking about?"
