It took the CONs nearly three months to take a second-hand tape to two right-wing friendly analysts who then produced a CON-friendly analysis of Stephen Harper's gravel-driveway confession...
And it only took the CON ad team a couple of weeks to design, concoct and otherwise 'fund' a new neg-ad, with the concurrent free publicity of such, to combat a still-unfleshed carbon tax shifting Liberal policy initiative. Nevermind that Harper's own intentions regarding climate change, remain as encapsuled as the hot air spewed by his drones Van Loan and Moore.
As to the CONs own policy ideas and plans, being the guys in government, we're still left in the dark. But I'm hoping they keep 'Splotchy' as their spokesperson when and if ever they decide to enlighten the electorate. Because, let's face it, Big Oil is just the kind of appealing friend-of-society that most of us harbour deep wells of sympathy and empathy for.
One other point: if it is to be a battle of ideas and responsible goals, I'll proudly stand beside Dion, May and Suzuki anyday against Harper, Gwyn 'oily' Morgan and Splotchy (my guess is they're getting a mascot suit sized up for Peter Van Loan at this moment.
