QUICK OFF THE MARK...
You have to give Jack Layton credit. Despite having little money and a position almost impossible to defend, he likely knocked out a double with his quick-to-air orange spots currently making the rounds on TV these days.
He hits his spots and lays out exactly why he has tumbled himself into a parliamentary pretzel (without quite saying it that way). Now, I fully understand exactly why he's doing it, and most Liberals should be thanking the spiritual one for the NdP for doing just that -- less said about the latest polls the better.
But is it such a novel idea, getting out quickly to head off the dissection of criticism, whether warranted or not?
Let's just say Jack's learned from our total lack of same ... I still have yet to see one of the Ignatieff wildlife spots except on Liblogs, we know the Dion team decided to forgo countering Harper's lies and fictional attacks with a deaf ear. Considering we have some money and Jack's practically working the squeegy corner for quarters, it's amazing that the big minds who surround Ignatieff haven't figured it out yet. They do have TV in Toronto, don't they?
