If Only They Were Normal #10- Michael Ignatieff
"Yup. You'll get nothing but straight talk from me. I think we've had enough of politicians who can't shoot from the hip. No more fucking around with fancy-dancy intellectual bullshit and promises, this time it's going to be for the people and I don't want anyone knowing who my dad is, hear? That's got nothing to do with anything. A little common sense, nose to the grindstone, roll up our sleeves and get to work is what it's going to be. There was a time a person knew what a liberal was and stood for, well I'm bringing that back and there's no effin way my tax dollars or anyone elses are getting wasted on a useless war. I gotta get back to the job here and I don't have a zillion speeches saying the same thing over and over so if you'll excuse me I'm gonna finish up then have some beer with regular citizens and listen to what THEY have to say."
Should keep you employed for many more years scout?
Another former Liberal cabinet minister, Lloyd Axworthy, has crawled out from the dark, damp basement of obscurity to gorge on the flesh of a Liberal leadership candidate.
simon, i tend to agree with you on the 'trudeau-ish attempt by the iggy-popster. only p.e.t. was an extreme diplomat on the international front and that's how canada won so many points abroad (nationally he failed somewhat). p.e.t. piggy. i think this was layton's super hockey power play all along when he called the vote of non-confidance....hoping to pick up more seats (which he did) , and not giving consideration to the outcome. well, if they pick up oodles more to become a large voice or in the off chance they would even win a minority, i guess good for him, but man what a gamble!!!! ah well, at least it seems to be exposing everyone for who they are.
