Michael Ignatieff scrummed with reporters this afternoon. I'll get some video posted when I get home, but I have the transcript and I found this bit here both telling, and amusing. I wonder how you say "retarded" in French, and which reporter asked this question. Anyway, I liked the answer from Michael:
>> (Voice of translator): Why do you believe that the government is making the opposition look like it's retarded or that everything is --Recommend this Post on Progressive Bloggers
>> Mr. Michael Ignatieff: (Voice of translator): Because Mr. Harper is a bipartisan politician. If there is no fight he is going to invent one. Since the end of January, I have worked to make the money come out of the government into the Canadian economy that it needs. That's the first thing. And then if there is no coalition, there is none, then he invents a coalition to fight against that coalition. That's Mr. Harper's style. That's all I can say.
