Just kidding, but I like this little rhetorical stratagem, which the Libs have been deploying a lot over the past few weeks:
The "hour draws nigh" for the federal Conservative government to face an election, says the deputy-leader of the Liberal party [Michael Ignatieff].
However, that can also only come at the call of one person - Liberal leader Stephane Dion.
Not really true, given the makeup of Parliament--both the Bloc and NDP would have to be on board to bring down the Tories. But, if you want to buff up Dion's leadership credentials, why not imply that he's actually the guy calling the shots in the HOC? Kind of like making lemonaid out of lemons, especially since the media is actually starting to buy it.
PS. But did he really have to say "draws nigh"? Who does Iggy think he is? E.A. Poe?
PPS. Meanwhile, Jason is doing some serious work on the Tories In-And-Out Polling Scandal.
