By-election night results

Along with most other BTers tonight, I'm watching the by-election results. Right now, we've got the NS seat in the bag, and in a potential political earthquake, we're leading in the "former" Bloc stronghold of Montmagny--L'Islet--Kamouraska--Rivière-du-Loup by 400+ votes, with over half the polls reporting.

Also enjoying a little West Wing while waiting... what better show to be watching on an election night?

    Glad to see your site alive and well. I line up with your perspectives both spiritually and ideologically, and rejoice with you on the likelihood of the government taking 2 of 4 seats tonight. "River of the Wolf" was a surprise to me, so we welcome that as a bonus blessing. Carry on in His light.

    I'm a little confused about the Conservative spin about how these by elections were about Ignatieff and how expectations were really high for him. How high could they possibly be for four ridings the Liberals never really held for decades? They weren't expected to win any of these four anyway even in a general election, so how is this about Ignatieff's electoral strength?

    Also, congrats on picking up that Quebec seat. Honestly, I do not like the Bloc being in Ottawa and the less of them there are, the better.

    I posted my obligatory dig about the liberals by election results on Warren Kinsella's blog.

    . . . how is this about Ignatieff's electoral strength?

    It's about Iffy's electoral strength (or lack thereof) in the fact that the Liberals' share of the vote went down from a year ago in three of the four ridings at stake - the only exception being the NS riding, which is an aberration because Bill Casey took a lot of votes last year that otherwise would have gone to Tories, Grits, and NDP.
