I served Jean Cretien, I knew Jean Cretien, Jean Cretien Was A Friend of Mine…

August 31st, 2010

Remember when Liberals bragged about “the toughest and most ruthless machine in Canadian politics,” not whined about it.the-count_bmp

Frankly, I’m still trying to get my head around Jean Cretien publicly using the words NDP and leadership together, thus giving them credibility they really don’t have.

The more I watch of The Count, the more I believe that, regardless of what this or that poll says, when an election is on and everything counts, Harper is going to wipe the floor with this guy.

for whatever reason, I don’t tend to feel sorry for you. Ever.

canadian-federal-liberal-conventionOne question for Margaret Atwood, The Barenaked Morons (or any coked up ex-morons), Quebec and everyone else who protested that Conservative cuts to arts funding was the end of culture in Canada:

Do you, or do you not believe that Erica Basniki’s tax dollars should go towards paying for Homegrown, a play about Toronto 18 terrorist Shareef Abdelhaleem?

You at the back… yes you, Michael Ignatieff… Your first.

Some people have razar sharp political instincts…

… some people are Gerard Kennedy.

At the last Liberal leadership convention, Gerard Kennedy was king maker, throwing his support to Stéphane Dion on the convention floor. This has worked out, shall we say, less than satisfactorily for the Liberal party.

Jump ahead to yesterday, while Dominic LeBlanc was making merry endorsing Michael Ignatieff, Gerard Kennedy was at Bob Rae’s office throwing his support behind the defender of democracy. Within twenty-four hours, Rae would pack it in and concede to Ignatieff.

That’s twice it has come down to Ignatieff and someone else, twice Kennedy has chosen someone else.

Look for Gerard Kennedy to occupy an office as far away from the new, acclaimed leader of the Liberal Party as Garth Turner once did from Stephen Harper.

True democracy only has one choice. Therefore, Bob Rae is bowing out of the leadership race.

Bob Rae has told his supporters in a conference call Tuesday that he will end his bid for the Liberal leadership, CTV News has learned.

CTV’s Ottawa Bureau Chief Robert Fife confirmed Tuesday that Rae will not challenge frontrunner Michael Ignatieff — virtually ensuring that Ignatieff will become Liberal leader.

Rae is expected to formally confirm his withdrawal from the race at a press conference at 3 p.m. ET in Ottawa.

I don’t like Bob Rae, and Michael Ignatieff may be the best choice for leader. But if I’m a Liberal today, I wonder what happened to my party that a guy who lived and worked in the United States his entire adult life, is the only guy in the race to lead my party.

Frankly, the Liberals talk about renewal, but without the debate that a leadership race brings, how do you achieve renewal?

History may show that Stéphane Dion did far more damage to the Liberal party than can currently be imagined.
