Wooing The Voters By Insulting The Voters

From (you guessed it!) a blog, this time the campaign diary for Ottawa Centre's Tory offering, Brian McGarry:

Brian and the canvass team were working in a very exclusive high-rise condominium complex – one of those places where the condos are very expensive, but the poll goes to the NDP. 'La gauche caviar,' we used to call them when I lived in France; 'silver spoon socialists' they call them here.

This is dated September 17th. If you live in a Ottawa condo visited by Mr. McGarry in days immediately previous, congratulations, there is a good chance he thinks you're a commie.

Kady's post is quite apropos.

H/t Amy.

(Note: in fairness, these are the words of a campaign staffer. But presumably Mr. McGarry knows how to read.)

Still desperately seeking anything, any hope, any tidbit to try and stop the bleeding from the almost cadaver that is the Liberal Party of Canada.

Have a nice suicide. Couldn't happen to nicer folks.

Uh, isn't there rumblings about this guy also being in a similar position to Terry Kilrea? I guess morticians don't have the integrity as officers of the court...

". . . from the almost cadaver that is the Liberal Party of Canada." - wanna bet

Why do cadavers always get a bad rap? They perform a useful (though gruesome) function in society. There's no reason the Liberals can't be as useful as a cadaver.

Well, you would know. You have sex with them.
