I don't know what Tom Flanagan is doing lately, but I'll bet you Harper is kicking chairs tonight.

1. So what happened?
Thomas Eugene Flanagan is a political scientist at the University of Calgary and a conservative political activist. He played an important role in helping Stephen Harper become Prime Minister of Canada.

2. Yeah, I'm curious about this, too.
Is it possible that he's being a principled non-partisan small "c" conservative on this issue, or has there been a falling out?

3. Dunno, but with 'friends' like this
Harp doesn't need any enemies. :)

Must have been a falling-out because Flanagan has criticized him before, although this is the worst one yet. Flanagan has insider knowledge too, which makes him a danger I would think.
