"Game, set, match. Move on."

Gotta love this post from Warren:
"My one-person focus group is my gal; she's smarter and more intuitive than me, even if she was a Tory, long ago. She laughed out loud when I read her this line from the Prime Minister. I was laughing, too.

"Mr. Dion and Mr. Duceppe are quite a group of gossipy old busy-bodies."

Sorry, fed Lib pals, but that was a killer line. Game, set, match.

Let it go, move on.
Heard it on the radio last night, and thought it was a real good one-liner myself.

I think, however, that WE'RE the ones who shouldn't let this one go. This is yet another example of the kind of slimy and disgusting "gotcha" politics that the Liberals have been playing for far too long now in this minority government. Jamming up Committiees by introducing irrelevant and drawn out motions. And now jumping deep into the personal lives of Ministers, doing everything they can to smear them. I like the line in the House yesterday, in response to Iggy's question on this one... "Trudeau said that the government doesn't belong in the bedrooms of the nation. The member from Etobicoke-Lakeshore is certianly no Trudeau."

Enough is enough. Did you know that the Liberals are intentionally delaying study of the Consumer Protection Act by trying to go back to re-examine studies on Insite? That's right... Canadians have said they want stronger consumer protection laws, but the Liberals are keeping it off the table until we go and look further into one of their pet projects.

Personally, I say we make sure the public clearly sees and hears about every single thing the Liberals keep trying to dig up. Canadians will be disgusted when they hear fully the antics of the Liberal Party of Canada.

Debate and discussion, even disagreement, on the issues is one thing. But this Republican-style of "GOTCHA" that the Liberals are playing at is not welcome here in Canada... and I think Canadians will agree with me on that one.

UPDATE: Ask, and you shall receive... Janke's got a good post on this one. Looks like I may have been right... the Liberals, and the Bloc no less, seem to have been pulling a lot of media strings to get this story into the mix. Like I said before, I think WE should keep it going... expose this Liberal smearing sliminess for all it's worth.

The Liberals are DESPERATE to get back into power, and will say and do ANYTHING to get there. Instead, what they've gotten on this story is exactly what they rightly deserve... the PM turning it right around and making the antics of Mr. Dion and Mr. Duceppe INTO the story... and making THEM the punchline with his brilliant one-liner.

Let's read that one again... "Mr. Dion and Mr. Duceppe are quite a group of gossipy old busy-bodies."

Like Warren said, "Sorry, fed Lib pals, but that was a killer line. Game, set, match."

I ask Canadians... do you REALLY want these kinds of people running YOUR country?

UPDATE II: The important lines of Chantal Herbert's story today, thanks to Janke...
"With Quebec City the ground zero of an all-out election war between the Bloc and the Conservatives, there were other signs this week that the hostilities are escalating to new levels.

On Wednesday, Duceppe expressed concerns over reports that Foreign Affairs Minister Maxime Bernier's former girlfriend once had ties with biker gangs. But the inside story is that, behind the scenes, the Bloc (and the Liberals) had been actively lobbying the media to break the news for weeks.

Julie Couillard has no criminal record. She has never been charged with criminal activity and some of Quebec's crack investigative reporters failed to find evidence that she has had links with bikers since a 1999 divorce.

It is just about unprecedented for a Quebec party to venture into the private life of a political opponent in this fashion. The Bloc, under Lucien Bouchard or even under previous incarnations of a more serene Duceppe, would not have touched a story that so barely passes the test of public interest. Nor, for that matter, would a Liberal party that had not lost its opposition rudder.

But desperate times, it seems, call for desperate moves."
Desperate indeed...

UPDATE III: Looks like I'm pretty far behind on this story... been a busy day. Anyway, the National Post has two more articles on this story, mostly taking the Liberal to task for their sleaziness. Here's one from Don Martin, and another from Kelly McParland.

    I don't know for certain but I have a feeling that this is a Quebec issue. I don't think that the rest of Canada cares but I think that with the history of the outlaw bikers in Quebec, people in Quebec are interested in this story.
