I turn to Maclean's if I want to know what idea conservatives will be pushing next. So when I saw a recent copy of Maclean's featuring a jarring photo of an old person's wrinkled hand with the middle finger raised, I realized the right is gearing up to make generational conflict the next big thing.

Along with the photo of the raised middle finger was a cover photo of a smiling, white-haired older woman holding a wad of $50 bills, with many more floating around her head, as if money were raining down on her. The cover headline: "OLD. RICH. SPOILED."

Please help rabble.ca stop Harper's election fraud plan. Become a monthly supporter.

Kathleen Wynne broke a number of taboos last week, proving it's possible to get elected premier of Canada's largest province while being a woman, while being openly gay and -- perhaps most surprising -- while openly defying the right-wing orthodoxy that's ruled this country for three decades.

It may be this last aspect of her victory that broke the most resistant taboo.
