LaP Returns?

Wow. Very interesting story over at Canada.com:


MONTREAL: Sources close to Jean Lapierre indicate that the former federal Liberal Quebec lieutenant is eying a return to politics. Lapierre has privately indicated to his most trusted advisers that he's eager to get back into the game and will toss his hat into the ring for PQ leadership should Andre Boisclair step down as the party's leader following their third place showing last week.

Although his most recent involvement was with the federal Liberals, Lapierre is the former co-founder of the Bloc Quebecois and has many connections among sovereignists who would no doubt support the charismatic media personality's bid should he choose to run. Lapierre has expressed interest in merging the PQ with Quebec Solidaire, to form a new permanent rainbow coalition among separatists he feels can return the movement to its left wing roots and make a legitimate run for government during the next federal election.

  • Okay, this is the worst AFD ever - I've been suckered in THREE times today! On Ben Mulroney running, on Chretien being drafted back, and now this. Cripes, it usually takes just once for me to catch on the rest of the day.

    That was a really, really, really good one.

  • But this isn't an April Fool's Day joke.

    I'm mentioning this because I keep hearing the word "bully" as Liberals try to slam Harper and it's starting to come off as a whole helluva lot of whining.

    Liberals need to get a grip on their messaging because this is the equivelent of moaning about having their pig tails dipped in an ink-well.
