Douche vs Douche
True to form, the Stephen Harper Party, home of the lowest common denominator, has gone for the garbage. The new attack ad campaign is under way, it portrays Ignatieff as an arrogant, expatriate intellectual and ego stroking narcissist. While those charges are true enough by my reckoning, I'm just not sure how the Cons figure that they look better by pointing them out. Dion they could make look the fool, they could mock his accent, his posture and appearance. But Ignatieff is more or less one of their own, a blustering, self impressed douche bag who will do anything it takes to gain power. I kind of feel sorry for the poor C.R.A.P. operatives that had to comb through the tens of thousands of pages of Ignatieff's copious self expression. Sure, there's a mother lode of material to exploit but it also opens the door for the similar exploitation of Beefy Steve's anti-Canadian diatribes and much as I don't like Ignatieff, he's a damn sight more artful in his prattling than Stevie-boy has ever been. From my vantage point we're about to witness a douche fight of epic proportions. I don't want either of the combatants to win but I sure am hoping for injuries.
