By Gosh

Here's a surprise. Prime Minister Harper, through his exceptionally unwise and partisian budgetary policy, has inadvertedly raised Canada's profile. Only a week after a political crisis swept through Parliament Hill, that venerable old media institution, The Economist has actually put the story on the front page of their Web site.

Now that the moment has past it seems a little odd to bring it up at all. Then again, that's always been my problem with the Economist, the magazine. Their incisive analysis is mostly only valid on a Monday. By Friday it is nearly irrelevant. Unfortunately their Web site is no more immediate. Political analysis is often like a hockey game's play-by-play. It's hardly something you need to hear once the score is tallied and the victor declared.
