I Do Not Like A Shadow Cabinet. I Do Not Like It, Sam I Am

M. Dion doesn't like the term 'Shadow Cabinet' preferring the throwback to the heady days of Martin rule and the oh-so-successful descriptor 'Team'.

Apparently the Liberal party is so inclusive there's a job for every MP in the new Team Dion. Reminds me of Tom Lehrer's observation that the U.S. Army was a model organization, in that not only did it prohibit discrimination on the grounds of race, creed or colour, but also on the grounds of ability.

That said, even with the new expanded 'Team Harper' across the aisle, it seems that it still takes nearly two Liberals to 'shadow' one Conservative, with Team Dion having 50 members, according to Pravda North Radio. Are we really still that scary?
