Stéphane Dion is celebrating the triumph of good over evil today. Jumping the gun, you say? Well, that just shows you are as clueless as his mostly-white traveling press pack, whose dimmer members had to furtively Google the subject of the Liberals' latest press release.
Dasara, according to Wikipedia, is an important Indian holiday which "concludes the festival of Navaratri, and the holy day also commemorates the triumph of good over evil." It seems that "celebrations can take on a wide variety of manifestations, ranging from worshiping the goddess Chamundeshwari (Durga) to exhibiting colorful toys on the day of bombe habba in Kannada."
Aha! Kannada! Now it's all starting to make sense.
Who knows why the bean-counting heathens at the CBC didn't give us the day off for Dasara. But at least we now know not to confuse it with Dussera, the festival of joy, which is not the same thing at all.
It's an election, after all, and we're talking good versus evil. Not joy.
