Smart Or Stupid? (Mulcair And The Debates)
Mulcair is threatening to pull out of any debate that Harper ain't at. Already, a tide of outrage is rising on twitter. Democracy is being defiled!!! and so forth. Mulcair would be wise to ignore it. Catering to that tiny sliver of the nation's citizenry who are immersed in its federal politics is profitless. Its like trying to service a few thousand high maintenance girlfriends. Exhausting, and a money sucker. So how will this play to the wider audience of the unwashed and apathetic? That is, the target audience? Well, probably not badly. Mulcair wants to be Prime Minister, not one of the also-rans. So why waste time arguing with losers over scraps? Fight the guy you're out to replace! That's the thinking behind the move, as far as I can figure it. So: smart or stupid? Right now I'd file it as dirty but effective. As for the LPC response, well I hope it doesn't involve whining about how unfair life is.
