BIZARRO WORLD...


... when the media gives Denis Coderre the hint of respectibility and sensibility typically applied to knights of the roundtable, captains from the Original Six hockey clubs, and Sir Thomas More.
So typical that they are enjoying the pile-on of Michael Ignatieff while letting a numbers-deficient, ethically challenged and accountability allergic CON and their so-called leader skate away with the worst fiscal management record since George W. erased a healthy surplus with 'me-me-me' economics.
Could Ignatieff have handled his Outremont decision more astutely and more quickly? Sure. But when the end result grants powers to the grassroots that previously were in jeopardy, when the end result guarantees two ridings will have the choice of two excellent candidates, there is expectations of a zero-sum result. But not in today's Bizarro-world, where heavily leveraged media conglomerates hooked on government money speak with an eery similar voice.
But, take heart fellow Liberals. The last time a party leader was being scolded and pillored for some self-inflicted reason, he lived to walk and run again, right?

Speaking of Ignatieff, have you seen this attack ad against him that popped up the other week?
