For all those smug liberals out there, who whine and complain about the state of the country, and then keep voting Liberal 'because Stephen Harper (read - Stockwell Day, Preston Manning, or any other conservative) scares the hell out of me' -- the Newspeak propaganda campaign that began the other night is all they need to excuse themselves for holding their noses and voting Liberal.
Paul Martin and his cronies seem to be masters at exploiting the weakness of the Canadian public.
His simpering display, though pedestrian and blatantly politicing, will undoubtedly comfort enough of the people into thinking that a vote for the Liberals is a vote for the guys who simply want to govern -- rather than the other guys who are power hungry and want to call an election when the Liberals just want a chance to find out the truth.
Why anyone would believe this is beyond me. But people seem to want to buy into the all the BS the Liberals spew. You see the blogs and elsewhere that there are a lot of us who don't, but when it comes to election day, they win.
I can't help but feel like this is 2004 redux. The Conservatives will be painted as a species of lower evolution, and despite what they are and what they seem to be the Liberals will coast to power -- the only difference this time, I think, will be that they'll be handed a majority for their troubles.
