Of course... the "Usual Suspect"

Hanoi Jane Taber... the Sherlock Holmes of political journalism...
“I sincerely believe that the Giorno letter is at the heart of this thing because it will show the true nature of Stephen Harper – because he obviously approved it.”
See, the thing is, Janie... you don't really need a mysterious, unnamed "senior Ignatieff official"... to know which way the bovine emissions, er... wind is really blowing...
-- OTTAWA -- Michael Ignatieff is drawing a link between disgraced former cabinet minister Helena Guergis and organized crime.

“I don’t want to make false accusations but you don’t get cocaine at a corner drug store, right? You have to get it from somewhere, from someone and usually that means organized crime.”
But Stephen Harper is the villain here? Funny how that works, huh?


RELATED: Janie jumps again...
Helena Guergis’s career was destroyed by a parliamentary process run amok and a Prime Minister who is out of control, Liberal Party President Alf Apps says.
Curiously... Ms. Taber forgets to mention that, at one point, Alf Apps was Nazim Gillani's lawyer and was, in fact, described as Gillani's "getaway driver" before a paliamentary committee.

You can almost smell the journalism.
