Jane Taber has dutifully regurgitated the latest Conservative talking points on her blog today. The Conservative war room wants us to know that Liberal leader Michael Ignatieff using students as props (by talking to them and answering their questions) is totally wrong (because we have a military for that very reason, apparently).
“Ignatieff’s Liberals shouldn’t use our kids to promote their political agenda,” says a new Tory internal memo, dripping with outrage and incredulity. “It just demonstrates that Ignatieff isn’t in it for Canadians. He’s just in it for himself.”I know speaking to students, listening to what they have to say, and answering their questions sounds crazy to the Conservative war room, but it's really not.
