The best part about this afternoon's budget won't be the actual budget, but the Opposition Parties reaction to it.
The Opposition doesn't want an election right now, so there is no way they will vote against the government's fiscal plan, no matter how much they might hate it.
Consequently, the NDP, the Bloc, the Liberals will all have to pretend to like something -- anything -- in the budget.
The fun part will be watching them grit their teeth as they say nice things about the Tory plan.
This is where the spin doctors earn their money.
