I know it's not as entertaining...

As promiscuous, large-breasted biker chicks... but back in the world of actually governing and setting policy... Beloved Supreme Leader Dion is busily engineering another trainwreck...

St├ęphane Dion is delaying the launch of his carbon-tax plan over resistance from some caucus members who fear he will botch the selling of the proposal.

Understandably, this has made many Grits nervous; explaining a carbon-tax plan is technical and difficult enough. It is complicated by the fact that Mr. Dion is not regarded as a good communicator.

"I think there is a concern that the communication is so weak that it will never get properly launched. That is the problem," says a senior Liberal insider."

"How do you deal with those?"

"They don't know. They don't have a clue."

See how the worm turns!
Another stab in the front on the pages of the Globe & Mail chronicling Dion's metamorphosis on carbon taxing. It compares his statements in 2006 and this year.
(Link at the end)
Here is a sample.
2006:-
"Some of my opponents for the Liberal leadership have suggested that a carbon tax would be the most effective measure to curb climate pollution. This is simply bad policy, for the following reasons etc."

2008:-Dion says Canadians willing to accept carbon tax

The poor addled fellow will take down his party.
You go girl.

Steffi needs to hire "Archie Bunker" to explain how the "Carbon Tax" Math will work ... Archie can probably do a better job than Steffi !
