a frenzy for two weeks. Try as they might, the Liberals can't kill the story because their own guys are feeding it. And not just any guys, but big guys like Jean Chretien, a three term former prime minister. And Alf Apps, the party president. And Samuel Lavoie, president of the young Liberals. And Warren Kinsella, the Liberal tactician, who has now sworn an affidavit that he had conversations with Apps last month about Liberal conditions for merging with the NDP.
Grits stumble with Ignatieff at the helm
The Liberals under Michael Ignatieff are failing this test at every level. Their message is incoherent. Their fundraising lags the Conservatives by a margin of three to one.
The responsibility for this situation falls on Ignatieff, who in the year since being confirmed as leader has failed to tell Canadians who he is and where he would Converse Shoes Uk Sports Direct
When the Liberals sent Iggy out to knock down the coalition story last weekend, he only made it worse when he said co operation between parties "is not illegitimate." It wasn't until Wednesday that he finally got it right, calling the notion "ridiculous." You're not at Harvard any more, Michael, you're in politics.

Among other things, the Dippers would have to swear off socialism. It's too late for that. And the Liberals have already handed Stephen Harper an incredible gift the socialist coalition. He's going to drive a stake through their heart with this line, especially in Ontario. Remember the pictures of the Three Stooges coalition at their ill advised signing ceremony in 2008? Not only will the video show up in Conservative attack ads, the Tories will remind Ontario that when Bob Rae was premier, he had days named after him.
