Dumb and Dumber

It's official: Gilles Duceppe has lost it.

Duceppe proclaimed today that he hopes the Bloc can win all of Quebec's 75 seats in this election, wiping the Liberals off the map. I don't know who Duceppe's pollster is giving him breakdowns of the West Island (Frank Graves?), but I think Irwin Cotler can likely still sleep easy tonight, despite Duceppe's boasting.

Then again...the Bloc does have one thing going for them in Quebec right now that could set up a sweep. If you'll recall my BQ preview, I gave Duceppe the following advice:
2. Make sure there is always a microphone in front of Jean Lapierre

And, tonight, Jean Lapierre did not disappoint, becoming the first person (of many?) this campaign to compare their opponents to Hitler. OK, OK...I'll be fair. He compared Duceppe to a "Nazi" - not Hitler. So maybe he only thinks Duceppe is at Goebbel's or Goering's level.

However, this does raise an interesting question. If the Bloc Quebecois is comparable to the Nazis, who does that make the man who co-founded the Bloc Quebecois comparable to? Hmmm....

  • "Are you sure you're a liberal?"

    LaPierre COFOUNDED the Bloc, why don't you go ask him if he's a real Liberal. God, look what happens when the Martin machine gets rid of anyone with any sort of critical thinking ability - someone can completely ignore LaPierre (a clear traitor to Canadian unity) and call into question the Liberalness of Calgary Grit.

    Hishighness, you must have been attending classes at the Cherniak School of Flunkiness.

  • Hey, I'm an alumni of imtoochickenshittopostmynamesoipostasanonymous University.

    One of my favourite classes dealt with the Ad Hominem fallacy. Great course.

  • Quebec seperation is absolutely inevitable no matter what the outcome. Your head is in the sand if you can't see it. This election should be about how to make a fair Canada given that certainty.

  • Dear Mr CG,

    Please, for the sake of a break, turn your incredible intuition and analysis to the main stream media. Perhaps a breakdown of various performances from the Likes of Newman v Duffy, who's journos (libs, cons or dips) are winning the war for their team? Who asks the hardest questions? Where do the biases, if any, lie? You are the only man for this job - liberal leanings aside. Good luck...

  • and now we here from dumberer:

    Les excuses de Gilles Duceppe, qui disait dimanche souhaiter "faire disparaître" les libéraux du Québec, ne sont pas suffisantes pour le chef libéral, Paul Martin.

    Il refuse par ailleurs de condamner la réplique de son lieutenant politique, Jean Lapierre, qui accusait les bloquistes d'emprunter un ton "naziste" (sic).

    (lapresse)

  • Lapierre is a dumbass who doesn't know to campaign and could easily lose this riding (yeah, I'm in the Outremont riding). I wouldn't vote for him last year and I won't vote for him this year. He could and should go down, but vote splitting may allow him to sneak up the middle.
