Kitties aside, hats off to Gordon Campbell for winning his third straight election last night. Of all the candidates he was and remains far and away the most qualified party leader for the job, and the rank hypocrisy of the NDP and Carole James over the carbon tax was stomach-churning enough for many to realize that they're an opportunistic lot that will all-too-happily sacrifice long-treasured principles if they think it will make their numbers go up a couple percentage points. I've met Campbell only once, at the official announcement that OUC would become UBC-O, but he has long been a very impressive politician and the best premier BC has had in my lifetime.
