When I thought about it for a while I came to conclusion that Warren Kinsella and Scott Reid are two Trojan horses of Bob Rae and Power Corporation boys. They both are Chretien’s old hacks and Jean Chretien wants to install Bob Rae as LPC leader to protect PowerCorp’s interests. (John Rae, the brother of Bob Rae is currently listed as Power’s Executive Vice-President, Office of the Chairman of the Executive Committee (Paul Desmarais), Chretienâ€™s daughter France is married to Paul Desmaraisâ€™ son Andre. see here)
Ignatieff and his supporters at HoC presented real risk that they could cross the floor and join Conservatives so in order to prevent such possibility Liberals backroom boys had no choice but to name Ignatieff as their interim leader.
Since they were unable to stop him they decided that they will use him as meat for their cannon in war with Harper. Now, they started to pump him up creating totally unrealistic expectations of him in eyes of his liberal supporters and general public. (more…)

The Liberal fire ship.
Liberal ship was taking so much water in that it seemed impossible to keep it afloat much longer. Abandoning it was was not so much of an option as a matter of timing. Question was what to do next as the Liberals felt trapped between Conservatives firmly entrenched on right end of political spectrum continuously expanding into the centre and New Democrats advancing from left and of political spectrum taking away voters and potential political donors. Saving the Liberal ship would not have saved political body of water where it could possibly sail even if it were in a good repair. There was only one way out of that bind and that was to secretly convert Liberal ship into a fire ship and use it to destroy NDP ship and kill their captain. It was the only thing that Liberal ship was still good for and that made the decision so much easier.
After secret conversion Liberal fire ship was anchored in an open harbour badly listing to one side, flag of distress was was raised and Captain Dion bravely stood on the bridge shouting commands, some old blind and hobbling sailors moved around pretending that they were still able to raise the sails and man the cannons. Other two ships decided to plunder it under a pretext that they were joining it to form a flotilla and attack Conservative Man of War. They were in for a very nasty surprise. As they boarded fire ship under the pretext of signing some kind of a treaty Conservative Man of War approached fired its canons and set Liberal fire ship ablaze. It was only then that the captains of the other two ships come to realise what kind of a trap they got themselves into.
As the crew of Liberal ship float about in their row boats they rejoice watching unfolding scene of mayhem and destruction.
Who said that it is only Captain Harper who is the master strategist??

Liberal MP Jim Karygiannis says coalition is finished, Dion should resign
December 4, 2008
There’s been a lot of blabbing back and forth in the MSM (and in the blogosphere, too) about what a dumbass, stupid, politically suicidal track HMPM Harper has been taking in the whole Coup d’Twits ’08â„¢ affair. Even longtime, hardcore Harper faithful were weeping, wailing and gnashing their teeth over what a blunder it was and how it was going to come back and bite the whole C/conservative movement where the sun don’t shine.
Personally, I didn’t agree; I was of the mind that the PM had gone for the jugular and should just keep on going.
Well, as it turns out, Steve didn’t do things the way I would have liked, but the end result is hardly the doom and gloom we were hearing in the blogs — and are still hearing in the MSM. :roll:Â Come to think of it, things are actually looking a little on the rosy side.Â Go figure:
OTTAWA – Almost three-quarters of Canadians say they are “truly scared” for the future of the country and a solid majority say they would prefer another election to having the minority Conservative government replaced by a coalition led by Stephane Dion, a new Ipsos-Reid poll says.
The poll also indicates Prime Minister Stephen Harper and his Conservatives would romp to a majority victory with a record 46 per cent public support if an election were held today.
The poll indicates the prospect of the Dion-led coalition has prompted Canadians to rethink the value of an election so soon after the Oct. 14 poll. Fifty-six per cent said they would rather go to the polls than be governed by the coalition.
Funny as hell, how some things work out sometimes, eh?Â But that’s not the only bad news for Celine Stephane.Â Nosiree.Â The rats are already hopping off the boat and the Lieberal cutlery is out and getting sharpened up for his hide again…
Within an hour of Prime Minister Stephen Harper winning a two-month reprieve, some Grit MPs were pulling back from the idea of trying to replace the Tory regime with a Liberal-NDP coalition propped up by the Bloc Quebecois.
Toronto MP Jim Karygiannis says the coalition idea is finished and is calling on Stephane Dion to resign the Liberal leadership sooner rather than later.
Gee whiz, who’d have seen that coming?

… for a chilling conversation fragment to overhear at your local pub?
“It could be done. It would take fewer than a hundred men to storm parliament and gun every one of those bastards down.”
No, I’m not making that up. But I wish I was.
Anybody who doesn’t live in a cave already knows what kind of Machiavellian shit has been going down in Ottawa lately. Never mind that they just had their worst electoral performance in the history of confederation (an even worse showing than they put in for the Diefenbaker and Mulroney landslides), the God damned Librano$ still think that they should be the ones to govern the country.
So what if the Canadian people didn’t elect us? So what if the Canadian people not only gave the Tories another government, but a strengthened one at that? Screw the Canadian people. WE rule this country as our God-given right because WE are the Liberals! If those unwashed idiots are too stupid to elect us, then to hell with them.
Lets’ get something straight: I’m not scared of this so-called “coalition” getting their hands on the national tiller. If it happens, it won’t last and as far as I’m concerned, if the Grits want to pull the pin on that political grenade and swallow it, I say “bon appetit!” You want to know what does scare me? This does (think damned hard about it, too):
- No matter what their protests to the contrary may be, this is about nothing more than greed and lust for power. Period. They couldn’t get elected and were threatened with having their lips pried loose from the public teat, so they plot the overthrow of the democratically elected government by coup d’etat. And that is exactly what it is.
- There are men in this country who will be sorely tempted to take matters into their own hands. No, I’m not talking about drunken braggarts; I’m talking about dead serious sons of bitches who will not fool around. And if that genie gets out of its bottle, God help us…
Here’s hoping things get a lot more boring real soon.

… When you TOO blatantly whore yourself off. After all, it’s one thing to put your own sorry self up for bids but it’s another altogether to ask everyone else in the boat with you to bend over and grab their ankles.
On the off chance that you haven’t heard, the more devout amongst the Green GaggleÂ® are getting themselves righteously pissed off at Ellie May’s bullshit.
Back when Ellie was pissing and moaning about not being allowed to hang out with the cool kids at the leaders’ debates on the TV, damned near every conservative (and even quite a few lefty) commentor, blogger, journalist and other bipeds pointed out that it would amount to nothing more than allowing the Lieberals to have not one, but two reps at the debates. The Greens are a kook fringe; most of their “support” comes from the fact that they’re where some folks park protest votes and that’s it. Period. They had no business at the debates (neither did the Blocheads, but that’s another rant).
Despite denials, verybody and their gerbil knew that Ellie’s gang was a wholly owned asset of the Librano$. Everybody, that is, except apparently some of the people who were running for office under her party’s banner:
ORILLIA – Green Party Leader Elizabath May is confusing her own candidates with talk of supporting Stephane Dion for prime minister, says the Green candidate for Simcoe North.
Valerie Powell is equally incensed at the Liberals, who she says are engaging in “old political tricks” by trying to appeal for Green voters at the last minute.
May is “making it definitely confusing, and a lot of a Green candidates are really upset,” Powell said at the Orillia Farmers Market today, where Dion showed up at a rally to back the local Grit candidates. “It’s confusing for us as candidates.
Confusing?? You’ve been sold out,plain and simple. What’s so confusing about that? :?Idiot.
OTTAWA — Elizabeth May has “sold out” her Green Party candidates and volunteers with her call for strategic voting in close ridings, a former deputy leader of the party says.
David Chernushenko, who lost to Ms. May in 2006 for the party leadership, said her comments will confuse and likely demoralize her supporters in the final days of the campaign.
“Every candidate deserves to be fairly considered for a vote, and I don’t believe in strategic voting and I don’t believe that any Green candidate, volunteer or donor should be sold out,” Mr. Chernushenko said in a phone interview yesterday.
Asked if that is what he believes Ms. May has done, his answer was yes.
Well, at least he gets it.

Ah yes, BrainfartgateÂ© (Hey, why the hell not? Nobody else has bothered to give the damned thing a name, have they?), the gift that just keeps on giving.
Seriously, I couldn’t have more fun with a train wreck on TiVo.Â In Smell-O-Visionâ„¢.
You’ve heard the fart, you’ve seen the noses wrinkle, now let’s see what else we have in Santa’s great big sack…
- Ol’ Steve’s on the hapless bugger like a pit bull on a mailman:
“His answer is, in French and in English, ‘I don’t have a plan. Yes, I criticized the prime minister, but I don’t actually have a plan other than a carbon tax. Please elect me so I can develop one.”‘
- Dion calls Harper a great big meanie.
- Dion plays the “I’m disabled and don’t speak English” card:
He also pointed out that he has a slight hearing problem and that he was doing the interview in his English, his second language.
- Some bozos jumped on that bandwagon (NP? WTF??):
But spare some empathy for Mr. Dion. Itâ€™s the end of a grueling campaign, the man has admitted to a hearing impairment and the question was open to interpretation while being phrased in Mr. Dionâ€™s second language.
- Steve (Janke-not-Harper) isn’t buying that line:
The question was not really that hard to understand. Sure, it was bit more complicated than “What’s your favourite colour?” or “What’s the average air speed of an African swallow?”
- Andrew (no apparent relation to Harry) Potter over at MacLean’s wants to shoot the messenger:
This is worse than the Chretien face-paralysis attack ad. CTV just won Dion the election.
