Stephane Dions’ first decision as leader of the Liberal Party of Canada was to asign the task of defining the new leaders image in the minds of the Canadian people to Stephen Harper and the CPC .
Mr. Harper obliged with a series of attack ads that are truly a magnificent showing of political thuggery and chicanery.
The ads are dirty and underhanded, especially considering they have been broadcast during periods when there is no federal election – in other words, just for the spiteful hell of it. Because they can. Because he’s down. And that’s the best time to kick a man. Politically speaking of course. They very effectively make Dion appear weak and foolish and are a political marketeering masterpiece.
Dions leadership is shaping up to be one of the biggest disasters in Canadian political history.
And how are you today, Mr. Ignatieff?
