Quote du Jour: Will Light Bulbs Bring Down the Tories?

The Globe & Mail's story about disgruntled conservatives who hope to revive the Reform party inlcudes this gem of a quote:

There have been major points of disagreement, Mr. Nicholls said, including about seeming small things such as the ban on traditional light bulbs.

“That light-bulb ban was just the final thing that broke open the dam for a lot of people,” he said. “It's stupid, it's political correctness, it's nanny-stateism, it's everything that Conservatives of all stripes abhor about the Liberals or the NDP – telling us how to run our lives.”

Not that those Reform types (ie. neocons) ever have any interest in telling people how to run their lives or anything...

Ms. Wilkins said there is much fear that the creation of a new Reform Party would split the Conservative vote and return the Liberals to power.

Last tory out of Ottawa, turn out the lights.
