Okay... I think I get it now

Stephen Harper is a crazy control freak... but Stephane Dion is a benevolent, fatherly disciplinarian...

-- MONTREAL -- Liberal Leader St├ęphane Dion moved yesterday to regain control of his Quebec troops, calling on them to show a "steely discipline," although he would not say what he would do if other dissenters pop up.

"I have a much better team than Harper. Not only is it better, it's united," Mr. Dion said.
Steffi-licker supreme, Serge Joyal, seemed a little less optimistic about that superlative and extremely loyal Liberal team...
"They don't seem to realize that we are in a war and in that war, you shoot at the outside, not the inside. You won't improve the situation if you kill some of your own soldiers," Mr. Joyal, who is now a Liberal senator, told CTV News.

FROM THE COMMENTS:
"I am thrilled that Steffi is still around, it's like having a perpetual live Monty Python skit to view daily -- 'E's not dead....e's just restin'."

"Keep him around, the comedic factor is incalculable."

Which he followed up with, na na nee boo boo, flapping his arms in the air and skipping off into the wilderness....

So the Liberals are at war with the Conservatives -- guess that explains why they keep dropping bombs and display a total lack of respect for the truth - after all, we know, in war truth is the first casualty.

Dion continues to talk like an analyst instead of a politician.

I can see someone like Susan Delacourt making that statement, sitting with her fellow PPG pundits. But for a (supposedly) Prime Minister in waiting to say that shows a misunderstanding by Dion of his new role since Dec, 2006.

As much as Dion et al hate Harper, they can learn a lot from listening to how Harper talks.
With Harper it's almost exclusively about government policies--advocate,advocate,advocate and explain explain explain.

Yip. Liberals are VERY united!
The Iggy camp is united under Iggy.
The Rae camp is united under Rae and the msm.
The Dion camp is united saying 'let's just get thru this until Dion can be replaced'.

Have any of you heard what Dion said at the Quebec Wing Executive meeting regarding the unrest in his party??? I'm the leader, and I don't want any more indiscipline!" and then later.."As the leader, I have the right to more discipline!" It just brings a smile to my face everytime. I mean c'mon..
