It has not been a good week for the Green Party.
First Elizabeth May's endorsement of Premier Stelmach's "intensity based emissions" plan left many babblers openly musing about ripping up their membership cards.
Then Elizabeth May tried over-riding the wishes of the grassroots by interfering in the nomination process in Vancouver Quadra.
For those who held the faith, now comes the ultimate kick in the slates:
"There's nothing official, mind you, but there is talk in Ottawa about Liberals and Greens crafting some sort of arrangement to help each other in the next federal election, Susan Delacourt reports."

Yes, you read that right. Elizabeth May is openly musing about politically collaborating with the Liberal Party--the very same chumps who did everything in their power to undermine her sacred Kyoto Accord.
The very same Liberal Party who let greenhouse gas emissions rise 30% above 1990 figures.
The very same Liberal Party who gave $1.5billion in corporate subsidies to the oil and gas industry.
The very same Liberal Party who signed us up for combat in the dead-end counter insurgency mission in Afghanistan.
The very same Liberal Party that today doesn't know where it stands on any issue of principle--including ones mentioned above.
Elizabth May is not an amateur, just accident prone. If she's making these missteps now, imagine the real boners that will flow from the rough and tumble of the campaign trail. Good times await.
P.S. Where is she running anyways?
