...wait a minute...
Interim Liberal Leader Bob Rae says one of his staffers was responsible for a series of anonymous Internet attacks aimed at Public Safety Minister Vic Toews.Rae, Rae... that sounds so familiar...
“I was advised yesterday that an employee of the Liberal research bureau in fact is responsible,” the chagrined Liberal chief told the House of Commons Monday.
“The prime minister has created a Nixonian culture. This stuff doesn’t happen unless the boss lets it happen.”I look forward to seeing Mr Rae fall upon his not so ethical sword.
“He has allowed to seep into his party and into his organization a culture of attack and, frankly, a culture of deception and dirty tricks, where almost anything goes.”
Yeah... I know.
COMPASSIONATE INTELLECTUAL LEFT REPLIES:
"Bob Rae set a trap. And you BTs are too stupid to realize it."A trap, huh? I dunno Nonny... what say we get a second opinion...
LAST WORD: CTV's Lisa LaFlamme...
...breathlessly announced there would be "explosive revelations" about robo-calling on the 11 o'clock news. When it came to the actual item... she changed her terms of reference to how "murky" things were... which, if you'll pardon me for pointing out... is almost an antonym for "explosive."
The item itself proved to be neither... but instead featured yet another Pat Martin diatribe... this time, comparing the Prime Minister to Tony Soprano.
The gist of the whole thing was the implication that Lisa and Bob Fife were on the verge of cracking some 23 year-old Conservative campaign worker from Guelph... who apparently had the goods on the PM.
It was, in its entirety... a donkey-load of innuendo & misdirection... or as it's known in Toronto... news, CTV style.
Maybe it's time to actually ask someone who has more than a passing familiarity with the process and what's actually within the realm of possibility.
