"You know my Answer: When we see the budget..."

You've probably already seen this on a few other Liblog sites, but I got a real kick out of it.


  • How fitting. Like the video gamers who seek out fantasy adventure,

    so too Dion was living out his own fantasy.

    And Dion has about as much chance of beating Harper in the real life political arena as my twelve year old son has in actually confronting alien monsters and eradicating them with a futuristic gattling gun.

  • With today's Ipsos-Reid poll somehow I don't think the upcoming battle will be that easy for Dion:

    Conservatives 37
    Liberals 29
    NDP 14

    In Quebec:

    Bloc 35
    Cons 26
    Libs 21


    Cons 39
    Libs 33

    The good news for the Libs is that they have a solid majority in Atlantic Canada, the bad news is that's all they've got.

  • I see the trolls are out in full force today.

    The video was funny. Dion needs to do things like this to counter the "nerd" thing - though personally I think he can teach us all to embrace our inner "nerd".

  • Gayle - sorry to disagree. Do you remember Paul Martin walking around with a leather jacket trying to look cool? I don't find this funny, but regardless of that, it's obviously not something that Dion would do on his own, and much the same like Paul Martin trying to look cool in his leather jacket. The whole thing is clearly contrived. Dion doesn't need gimmicks, he needs to LEAD, if he has it in him.

  • Although funny and light-hearted, I think this makes Dion look like more of a nerd.

  • Comments here prove that Conservatives have a shitty sense of humour most of the time, and anonymous comments are garbage about just as often.

  • This is a little rich coming from someone who doesn't allow ANY comments on his blog at all.

  • I, for one, loved it. It shows a side of Dion we don't often see. I don't know how well it will play politically, as most youth tend to lean left already and he's preaching to the choir - but it's good humour. :)

    Mark this Albertan neanderthal as "entertained and chuckling".

  • Dan, speaking of humourless, that would describe many of today's leftists who engage in what Angelo Persichilli(the Hill-Times colunist)calls "new reverse McCarthyism. He explains -
    "They declare themselves the "environmentalists," "pacifists," "progressives," "reformists,"
    "democrats," fighting for peace, defending the poor from the rich, the "ethnics" from the "racists" and the planet from everything -- from pandemics to pollution.

    But they never tell us what to do in any detail, only that those who disagree with them are "capitalists," "warmongers," "racists" and "deniers.""

    Unfortunately for the Liberal Party of Canada, Dion is part of that mindset. Check the article featured at National Newswatch but it's another reason our party needs a new leader. It's not the Liberal way.

  • "This is a little rich coming from someone who doesn't allow ANY comments on his blog at all."

    I wonder why...

    And I generally make a point of not reading anything from Perischilli.

  • lol. Pretty funny.

  • That's a really good skit. Flicks everyone in the nuts equally.

  • I thought it was hilarious. Thanks for posting it, CG.

    By Blogger Tarkwell Robotico, at 3:33 p.m.  

  • Very funny.

    As to image politics, it's nerdy, but the fun kind of nerdy that people find endearing, so that's good (Dion is never going to be a rockstar kind of leader; neither is Harper, for that matter).

  • Okay, that's just hilarious. Screw nerdiness- who WOULDN'T be doing this if they had a chance?
