How the tories roll
Well, it look like Harper's flying monkeys have been at it again and gotten what they wanted. There is a technical term for this kind of operation, coined by Donald Segretti back in the very early 1970s. Let's just say it's a graphic expression invoking images of sexual congress with rodents.
Interesting that they are so proud of emulating Nixon's thug squad.

I think it's very telling that they have so little confidence in their party to win on its own merit that they have to do things like this to ensure they don't have to face the best candidate in an election.

One thing they'll have a problem with in terms of Dion is that it'll be hard to slime him -- he's supposedly pretty honest.

how honest or honorable the candidate is has nothing to do with how easy it is to slime him - look at the tories American mentor Karl Rove and the swiftboating of John Kerry, the villification of McCain during the primaries for "having fathered an illegitimate black child" because he and his wife adopted a Bangladeshi refugee child. Honest doesn't enter into it.
