Ignatieff channels Tony Soprano

C'mon, Michael... enough yip-yap... prove to us that you're any different from that last guy.

**********

UPDATE: That controlling Stephen Harp... wait

Iggy I slaps down unruly subjects...

“Mr. Harper, your time is up,” the Liberal Leader told cheering MPs and Senators assembled in Sudbury for their summer retreat.

Some of those cheering MPs, however, had been reluctant to go to the polls, worried how Canadians would view another election just a year after the last one.

Mr. Ignatieff clearly pre-empted any opposition or doubts they might have had, announcing his decision before the caucus meeting.

UPDATE2:
CTV poll goes horribly wrong

During the last 2 elections, I guessed that any talk of a CPC majority was pie in the sky.
If Iggy pulls the plug, I think he'll open a big can of whoop ass on the libs this time. The voters will punish him IMO.
Good bet for a CPC majority.

This does remind of Lucy and Charlie Brown and the football...I just can't make my mind up which "leader" is Lucy, and which one is Charlie...

Criminal Liberals stole forty million dollars from us and never paid it back, now they're greedy for power so they can steal some more - if Canadians elect these crooks they might as well hand over their whole paycheck and just hope 'The Natural Governing Party' sees fit to give a little bit back...

the more ignatieff says he's gonna "do something"... and then just sits on his thumb... the more people will make the inevitable comparison with dion.

iggy... the gift that keeps on giving.

Jack will prop up Harper and thereby avoid an election. Have fun working with the Socialists. Good call by Iggy, for once.

A fourth election in five years because the man who would be king says so? I don't think he will enjoy the reaction of the peasantry.

"another anonymous troll squeals... Jack will prop up Harper"

no, nonny... taliban jack has already explicitly roared... "i'm the hero who's gonna bring down the government".

jack is obviously counting on the puffin king to cave in and kiss some sweaty, hairy conservative butt.

so buddy... you have fun explaining how iggy is simply stephane dion 2.0 --

If the economy wasn't improving I would say that he might have a chance.

Going to the polls when the economy is improving and making the Conservatives look good (even though they had nothing to do with it) is a death sentence as people are going to see no reason for an election.

"langmann says... people are going to see no reason for an election"

actually... they're going to see the only real reason michael ignatieff pulled the trigger... hubris.

if iggy can't be prime minister of a country he abandoned 30 years ago... right now... i'm guessing he's heading south to resume his academic career.

Neo

The hubris has only begun...Iggy is playing the only card he holds...he was recruited from Haavahd by Mr. Davey because he's closest thing to that dilettante Trudeau that the LPC has had in years.

Rainmaker...The Sequel....He Was too Good to stay...We brought him back to prove it!

Look at Boob Rae in the background going rah rah rah.

If we get another minority Conservative government this time 5 bucks says that Boob Rae then gets the Conservatives a majority.
