Susan Delacourt has a great article on the role of blogs in the Liberal leadership race. I say "great", only because I get quite a few of my quotes in it.

In other news, I was at the Liberal Stampede breakfast this morning and snapped a few of the various leadership candidates in Western wear. No one "pulled a Harper" this year, but I also scored tickets to the Hays breakfast tomorrow so I'll be sure to try and track down the Tory MPs and provincial PC candidates.


  • CG: Good article, you are famous!

    Hey more details about the breakfast I was not able to go, what happened, who was there??

  • Bill Graham was the main speaker.

    Among the leadership crowd, Kennedy, Ignatieff, Dion, Dryden, Bennett and Fry showed up.

  • Hilarious picture of Harper in the Winnipeg Free Press of him in what would be a stretch to call a cowboy hat.

  • Notice how Kinsella didn't complain about Bart being featured and not him?

    Kinsella must be Calgary Grit!

  • Sadly, fred mc, I cannot say "hypocrite." It always seems to come out as "hypoquit," or, very rarely, it comes out as "Stephen Harper's appointments of David Emerson and Michael Fortier to cabinet."

    It's the strangest thing...

  • frog lady,

    You're so right. The appointment of Michael Fortier is much more important to the future of Canada than its strategic relationship with the United States.

    It's my opinion that Michael Fortier is the lynchpin to the success of the Liberals winning the next election. They should run hard on Michael Fortier's appointment and forget about jobs, economic prosperity, education, healthcare, national unity or foreign policy. Nobody wants to hear about that.

    Instead, the population wants to hear that Harper's a hypocrit because in his first week on the job, he appointed someone from Quebec to be a senator and in his cabinet. OUTRAGEOUS!

    Excellent comment Frog Lady, soon the world will be rid of Harper because of salient observations like yours.
