Republicans: The party of sleaze.
Yeah, yeah, the party of morals and values and all that. It's nice to see Stephen Harper has such an admirable role model.
Yes, payback can be a real bitch, can't it?
SERIOUSLY, THOUGH, I'm thinking about the various demonstrations of U.S. support for Stephen Harper and thinking how the other parties can use that to their advantage.
If I was in a pissy mood (hey, it happens) and responsible for creating TV ads for the Liberals, I might have a rapid-fire sequence of Bush administration and neo-con sleaze and corruption, followed by the article in which Stephen Harper is described as such an admirer of George Bush, and an ominous voice-over: "If you like what George Bush has done to America, you'll love Stephen Harper." Or something like that.
Unless Harper explicitly and publicly denounces American interference in the upcoming election, I think ripping him with guilt by association is just fine.
