One can almost hear Ignatieff’s silent tears when he realizes that Layton, if he were leader of the Liberal Party, would actually stand a better chance of returning the former Natural Governing Party to the government side of the House of Commons.- Werner Patels
Trudeau didn't play the populist. He didn't hide his education or erudition. When a reporter asked if he had struggled with his conscience before invoking the War Measures Act, he launched into a disquisition about democracy and the rule of law, including a reference to the clash between Creon and Antigone in Sophocles' play. He did not mention Tim Hortons. Even once.- Dave GardnerThe Ottawa Citizen’s Dan Gardner runs Michael Ignatieff over with a pickup truck, then throws it in reverse — the hook being Mr. Ignatieff’s recent, embarrassingly brain-dead op-ed in the New York Times, and the subject being Mr. Ignatieff’s painful and thoroughly unconvincing transformation from public intellectual into man of the people. Gardner recalls the famous photograph of Pierre Trudeau sashaying confidently into the Grey Cup final looking like Oscar Wilde on a particularly fancy-free afternoon, and then imagines Mr. Ignatieff at next year’s game. “He has a giant foam finger on one hand, a can of Blue in the other. He rises and declares, ‘Who among us does not like the CFL?’ He is pelted with hotdogs.” Great stuff.
