Because I disagree with Baird, I'd look closely at anyone running against him from either party. But I am deeply saddened at how hypocritical my party has become. They want me to love their dogma more than I love evidence, analysis, and legitimate debate. But my dedication to cool, reasoned disagreement and careful consideration of issues has me defending Baird here.My blog neighbor is referring to the Baird visit to Capital, which echoed an earlier trip to Vancouver. Both times Baird was met by vocal, strident, at times asinine opposition.
And the question I asked afterward still stands: if Baird is forced out by "sheer fury," who's going to replace him?
