Well, Europe has started to figure it out

During my daily news surf I came across a reference to the EU elections going on this and next week. It seems that most of Europe, which has leaned a bit left for most of the last fifty years, has finally "smelled the coffee". From Yahoo News today this little snip:

BRUSSELS – Conservatives raced toward victory in some of Europe's largest economies Sunday as exit polls showed voters punishing left-leaning parties in European Parliament elections in France, Germany and elsewhere.

Some right-leaning parties suggested the results vindicated their reluctance to spend more on company bailouts and fiscal stimulus amid the global economic crisis.

Lets HOPE that as our friends across the Atlantic obtain a collective clue it will spur on some changes in our indigenous political landscape. The rest at the link here.
