But one guy was having a ball

I saw this headline - "Martin will attempt to stay in power, even if he finishes second" - this morning, and somehow managed to think nothing of it until reading analysis thereof this afternoon, whereupon I actually did a double-take. Sweet Zombie Jesus, he said that? Yeah, forget all that election nonsense; everyone knows it's the Liberals' God-given right to rule, however they can. In any other country, this kind of statement would be more than a bit worrying. That this is Canada - a country without even a passing familiarity with the coup or caudillo - doesn't make it acceptable, just slightly confusing.
