No sentiment but politics

Just Plain Dumb

If you’re a scandal-ridden party trying to get past your history and climb your way back to legitimacy and government, there are a few words you should really avoid.

Stephane Dion, leader of the federal Liberal party, hasn’t quite realized this yet.

How else to explain his response to wholesale copying of Liberal policies by the government:

“Canadians will not be fooled,” Dion told his caucus as it met in Quebec City.

“They will know that there is something Mr. Harper cannot copy.

“It is the conviction, this conviction that we have as Liberals. Convictions about social justice in this country, about economic prosperity . here in Canada and abroad, the role of Canada in the world. This conviction will never be copied by Mr. Harper.”

Yeah. A party targetted for corruption is bragging about “conviction”. Careful, M. Dion. There’s no need to give the Tories easy targets.
