Tips on Beating Down the Conservative Menace
Finally, a candidate of some substance. Spaceman may be dull as dishwater but dull seems to work for Harper. The main competition for the Libs in the general wont be Harper anyway, but socialist firebrand and French national Tom (call me Thomas) Mulcair. A calm and cool Garneau will be more reassuring to small l liberals who Mulcair will need to hold on to second place.
When it comes to candidates of a party you vehemently oppose, there are two approaches.1. Hope for the most extreme idiot, thinking they're unelectable. As Rob Ford has shown, this can backfire spectacularly because sometimes the idiot gets elected. After all, if your opponents weren't stupid, they wouldn't be your opponents.2. Hope for the one most in tune with your views, knowing this makes them less likely to appeal to your opposing party's base, but most palatable to you if the worst happens and they get elected.The Sun has picked approach number 2.
