Great Election Headlines
But not only is that the best headline so far from the campaign, the story also has the best lead:
The Conservatives have edited an Internet ad showing a bird pooping on Liberal Leader Stéphane Dion to remove the defecation scene.
Luckily, Harper has made it perfectly clear that he does not approve of the defecation scene in the least bit:
Tories say the clip was the result of an overzealous web designer and Conservative Leader Stephen Harper apologized for the defecating puffin, calling it “tasteless and inappropriate.”
Mr. Harper said he didn't know about the web clip before it was posted Monday night. “Belittling images are not fair game,” Mr. Harper said.
Belittling images are not fair game?!?!?
Has Stephen Harper visited conservative.ca at all in the past year?
This is probably the least surprising gaffe we'll see all campaign. My only regret is that I didn't put "first Tory photoshop screw-up" as a question on my election pool (submissions due tonight!).
