What this place needs... a woman's touch. In the James Thurber sense, of course.

Welcome, please, my co-blogger for the duration of the election campaign: Marie Ève. Bilingual, witty, forthright and as feminist as they come, she knows her way around the Canadian political terrain, and takes no prisoners. Her touch is, in fact, somewhat subtler than that of the fencer in the illustration--but just as deadly.

Marie Ève has a bone to pick with so-con meddlers, authoritarian Con leaders, sexists, racists and pretenders of all stripes, shapes and sizes. She doesn't suffer fools gladly, but they suffer if they give her any back-chat. Or fore-chat, or side-chat, come to think of it. Or even if they just happen to get caught in the headlights of her gaze.

Move over, Sarah Palin--progressive women can kick ass too. Just watch her. I'm going to enjoy this.
