The fuss over the 'Libranos' poster is a red herring. Tony Volpe isn't offended; he and his fellow Liberals probably wish they had something as wickedly funny about the Conservatives.
Volpe's meltdown was a perfect example of the Liberal media machine at work. Volpe goes on an over the top rant, in an attempt to snatch away the headlines from other, more disturbing issues dogging the Liberals as they fester on in an infected Parliament.
If proven, accusations by Inky Mark that he was approached by the Liberals with an offer of a patronage appointment to reduce Conservative numbers in the House, are potentially catastrophic for this ignoble mob.
What better way to take attention away from their own wrong-doing, than to start playing the race card?
Accusations of bigotry resonate with the public -- accusations of vote tampering are just another day in Ottawa under the Liberals.
