GritGirl vid: The Harper Conservative's Massive Deficit

Newest video from the infamous GritGirl is up, entitled The Harper Conservative's Massive Deficit.



BTW, while it's a good ad and I love the ominous music, fact is all parties had agreed a deficit of some sort was needed and unavoidable. Now the size of the deficit, and where its spent, those are other matters.

But really, since when did fairness have a place in political ads? The Conservatives continually and deliberately misled Canadians and perpetuated falsehoods in their TV advertising. So they're in no position to kcetch. I say, you go GritGirl!

*Is the grammatical error in the title the innocent mistake of a basement amateur videographer, or an intentional and deliberate Machavelian-inspired error hatched via focus group to give the appearance of amateurishness? We may never know.

I think that is the point of the video. When almost all parties and economists were thinking a deficit was unavoidable, Harper was still standing up in Parliament as he did in this clip and telling Canadians there will be a surplus.

That was the end of November.

I can't see it... Same as the CTV censored one...

Jeff, people who live in glass houses...

Jeff, I've never been to your house or apartment before, but is it really made of glass as Wilson suggests? Are the floors and ceiling made of glass too or just the walls? You must spend a ton on blinds for privacy? What do you do to keep it warm? Not very environmentally friendly, I must say, to live in a glass house. We might have to take away your party membership card!

Haven't I invited you out to my green house yet, Ted? That's quite rude of me. Are you free for tea on Thursday? The magnolias are blooming and its a lovely, fragrant site.
