Wow... haven't they learned a cardinal rule in "dirty tricks of politics" -- if you engage in them.. don't brag about it afterwords.. because it makes you look like a bunch of "dirty tricksters"? DOH!

Well I guess this means anything goes in the next federal election.

I have heard from CPoP insiders that Stephen Harper enjoys blowing goats every friday night.

At the rate the CPoC government is going, they are leaving enough ammunition for their opponents to use next election - perhaps more than the Liberals did after 12 years in power.

Yay! Soon the Harpercrits can beak off from the Opposition bench again, howling and complaining and raising a tempest, signifying nothing.
Canada is back!
The Cons better brush up on their rhetoric about 12 years and doing nothing... looks like they'll be doing a lot more whingeing from the peanut gallery.
Silver lining: Harper shall point to his success in: TaDa!!! ________________ fill in the blank.
What will the Cons push as their #1 Success to be touted in the Spring 2007 election?

I think they were hoping for Iggy, with plans to launch petty jingoistic attack ads during the next campaign. They would have attacked Rae as a commie and Kennedy as too green. Dion was the best choice, I think.

Crabgrass - good points. I was thinking of it from a branding perspective, myself: Ignatieff, treated as a branding problem, seemed to be too difficult to differentiate, in a clear and compelling way, from Harper. (Hadn't thought of the jingoistic attack angle, but yeah, they would.)

Kennedy, Rae and Dion would be easy to differentiate from Harper, Dion, I think, most of all, especially on the environment. Plus he's clearly a man of honesty and integrity, whereas with Harper you have to look pretty hard in a strong light to find even shreds of those qualities.

Dion reminds me a bit of Lester Pearson: the guise of an unassuming rabbit concealing a flint-steel core. Damned good choice.
