Closure for C-48, closure for us

Apparently, we have a budget. Last night, with support from the NDP and the Bloc, the Liberals invoked closure on the C-48 budget amendment and then subsequently passed it 152-147. Stephen Harper ended up tasting very sour grapes indeed:

So I guess what it should remind Canadians is that when push comes to shove, the Liberals will make a deal with anybody. It doesn't matter if it's with socialists, or the separatists or any bunch of crooks they can find.
Some words of advice, Steve: using 'socialist' as a dirty word and then tossing 'socialists', 'separatists' and 'any bunch of crooks' into the same very odd-tasting pot makes you look like some sort of angry right-wing ideologue. Last I heard, you were trying to dispell that image. Just a thought.

Whatever your political persuasion, though, you've just got to love this Globe and Mail shot. All the backbenchers whooping it up, Libby, Ed, and Alexa with these "woo-hoo!" looks on their faces, Jack applauding sedately, and curmudgeonly Bill Blaikie all: "yeah. so. and you doubted me? that'll teach you."
