Well Dave, I'm the guy who's twice recently said on Mudcat that I believe VERY strongly in reading and observing BOTH sides of an issue, so I GUARANTEE you I'm not swayed by the liberal CBC or the conservative National Post. Most of my views on the Reform/Alliance party come from various interviews, sound clips, news stories, Party platform, and election literature that they send out. My guess is that you and I would probably disagree more on what "constitutes a bigot" than whether either of us has his "facts wrong".

But you're right, I shouldn't throw that word around so easily (even in a joking post). There has certainly been a fair amount of anti-immigrant, anti-French, and virulent anti-gay retoric, mixed with fundamentalist approaches to several other issues. They're too far to the right fer my tastes.
