Statements that make your head spin.

“You are the acting arm of Quebec pacifism.”Quebec Premier Jean Charest, addressing the Van Doos regiment about to depart for Afghanistan.

I know Afghanistan is very unpopular in Quebec, but Charest’s attempt at employing this type of alliteration to get Quebeckers to support the deployment might give you a hint why he only won a minority after being expected to win a majority at the start of the campaign.  It doesn’t quite rank up there with putting increased equalization payments towards a tax cut, but it’s up there.
