Fly Away, Little Sparrow
MONTREAL — Senior Conservative Party spokesman Ryan Sparrow has been suspended from the campaign after suggesting the father of a slain soldier who criticized Stephen Harper today was a Liberal.
Mr. Sparrow sent an email to CTV News today suggesting that Jim Davis, the soldier's dad, is a supporter of Liberal incumbent Michael Ignatieff.
He has also been ordered to call Mr. Davis and apologize for his comments.
I'll give the Tories credit - they're a lot better at damage control than they used to be. I guess the "practice makes perfect" adage applies here.
UPDATE: I was going to do a detailed post on the over zealous attack nature of the Harper Conservatives tonight but Aaron Wheery does a better job than I ever could. Read it here.
