Harper in a bubble: media care, does anyone else

Some whining from the  press corps following the Harper campaign that they’re only allowed five questions, and the campaign is so tightly controlled it may as well be done in a studio. Paul Wells notes though that this isn’t  affecting the Tory lead nor the general public, who generally are turned off anyway on the fourth election in seven years, with several important provincial elections coming up. Maybe in May we’ll pay attention, when it comes time to vote; Geff Simpson in today’s Globe notes that we have two wars ongoing, serious trade disputes with Europe and a gazillion dollar warplane acquisition, yet not of this is coming up in the campaign, which is seemingly focusing on whicharty can best bribe us with our own money. Thanks to Tyler McMurchy for this one.
