No sour grapes for our humble prophet Michael Ignatieff. Naw, he's a loser, but not a sore loser:
“This is a Prime Minister found in contempt of Parliament. This was a Prime Minister where the accumulations of what we believed to be abuses of power led to a point at which it seemed to me absolutely my responsibility as the leader of the opposition to stand up for the sovereignty of Parliament,” he said (when asked if he miscalculated by forcing an election.)Ignatieff went on to say that the *just visiting* ads were:
“absolutely unscrupulous campaign of personal attack.” and “I had a very large square put around my neck for a number of years.”Sniffle.
But, not one to make a fuss, Michael said:
"The only thing Canadians like less than a loser is a sore loser” and he is “leaving politics with “(his) head held high.”No, Mike what we like less than a sore loser, is a sore loser who takes his parting shots but pretends his still travelling the high road. Today, and throughout the campaign, you accused Harper of contempt for Canadians, abuse of power, corruption, lies, secrets plans to . . . (fill in the blank with any number of scary scenarios) But you have my sympathy because you've endured being called a political tourist. That must've been painful. Why do you suppose that is. My guess? Truth hurts.
Michael, I think you stubbed your toe on the way out.
