It's not easy...

...being Michael Ignatieff...

"It is very difficult to respond to an ultimatum that contains no ultimatum... Usually you say 'do X, or else.'"

"You don't just say 'or else.'"
I will, however, give Iggy this... he actually earned HIS credentials.

FROM THE COMMENTS:
"As it now stands, it looks like as if Iggy has placed Harper and the Tories are on double ULTRA super probation."

I just saw on CTV as announced by Robert Fife and Tom Clark that part of the deal between Harper and Ignatieff is that the Liberals will have an extra Opposition Day in September as an opportunity to pass judgement, via confidence vote, after the blue ribbon panel convenes. That is in addition to the probation report in November. The way Tom Clark and Robert Fife described it, this was another hammer, given to him by the PM, to beat an election drum in the Fall if Harper didn’t come across.

So as it now stands, it looks like as if Iggy has placed Harper and the Tories are on double ULTRA super probation. LOL How utterly pathetic is that?

Which also means that Iffy's super secret (even grassroots Libs don't know what's in the big red envelope) election platform will be on display this summer,
for all to see.
Anything short of 'a summer of solutions' from Iffy,
will be unacceptable.

p.s. The Blue Ribbon Panel is likely what the Western & Ontario Premiers wanted,
but Iffy can claim it is His,
as usual.

I love the sound of counting chickens before they hatch in the morning!

You might like to hold your sneers until the vote on Friday. You know what happened the last time the Opposition gave away its intention to topple the Harper regime. Steve ran away and got the GG to prorogue. He'd do it again, he's so desperate.

Hahahahahaha!

Well, Special K is calling this an Iggy win. And you know what that means? Only two more "wins" and he'll look like the black knight in "Monty Python"...

I am amused by the breathless desperation you exhibit answering each and every post. Are you trying to deflect your effette image by showing the world a picture of a gun and virtually shouting "I are a tough guy. I are really, really!!"

ah yes... torybaiter "aka canadian cesspool"... fresh off his other six homophobic drive-by trolls... continues his curious "maleness" inkblot campaign.

one minute these guys are kissin' up... the next, they're challenging you to a duel.

i guess now that the cynic is unemployed... he has that much more time to play his pathetic little games.

i think he needs a hug.

"jag says... Special K is calling this an Iggy win." --

of course... that's what's known, in conservative circles anyway, as... "warrenmongering."

the appropriate response is... "of course, warren... because you say so."
