Trolling through the stories on RCP last night, I saw the headline on the new Conrad Black column, “The Most Important Election since 1980”.
Wow, I thought. The 1980 election was pretty frigging important — the return of Trudeau, the rise of the PQ, inflation crisis, constitution, etc. But is this one that important, more important than the free trade election of 1988, or the historic third Chretien majority of 2000? Oops. Clickthrough, and see that CB is talking about the American election.
