Conservatives-that-have-been-had lineup grows

My letter in yesterday's National Post:

Re: Conservative Radicalism Goes Missing, Andrew Coyne, March 30.

I’m not sure why Andrew Coyne is so perturbed that fiscal conservatives “have been had.” Why does he think that they are so special? Social conservatives were “had” long ago and continue to be “had” with their faint hope clause that a Conservative majority would mean that Stephen Harper would do something about enacting abortion legislation once he got his majority. Ha! Not to be. Fiscal conservatives, join the lineup. There’s still plenty of room for everyone.

  1. Why do people keep voting them in expecting something different?
