On investment opportunities

Cameron nicely pegs the most obvious self-inflicted wound among Stephen Harper's comments today:
“I think there are probably some great buying opportunities emerging in the stock market as a consequence of all this panic,” Mr. Harper told reporters.
But let's note that while Harper's quote shows just how far he is out of touch with the economic reality facing Canadians, it's at least somewhat self-reinforcing. After all, based on the Cons' miserable performance in the second half of the election campaign, there's probably plenty of money to be made short-selling Con seats in the UBC Election Stock Market.
