And to think, I was fretting that Howard Dean would sink to such obscurity to be worthy of a Trivial Pursuit question by the end of the year. It turns out I need not have worried; the spectre of Howlin' Mad Howie is now being called up upon Jack Layton

It's not an inapt comparison, y'know? And it remains a good sign that the Liberals are feeling the need to snipe at their flanks to the left. I'm feeling better and better about this campaign.
