First "Leak" in Liberal Campaign

I was right that a "leak" was imminent, though I said it would happen last Thursday. Craig Oliver reported that there is, indeed, a "leak" in the Liberal campaign, though not quite the kind I expected... the "leak" is in their campaign plane, the gas guzzling Boeing 737 that's almost as old as I am..

I'm with the Liberals this week, sputtering along in Old Smoky -- That was the moniker we gave years ago to Brian Mulroney's prime ministerial Boeing 737. And now here I am in one of the ancient beasts again. Some reporters were miffed that the ice machine was not working and that there was no cold beer.

We left Ottawa in the rain and the roof was leaking onto the row where the Mounties sit.
If that's true, that's a MAJOR issue... a hole in the aircraft? Are they going to ground the aircraft for a safety inspection to find the source of the leak? How long is that going to take?

Are the Liberals going to have to haul out the bus again? I thought I heard a rumour this weekend that Dion's tour didn't have many stops planned for today. Who knows, it could be because they knew they'd have to ground the aircraft to find and fix the problem.

    Most likely just condensation from all the hot air of the media types on board , and the poor or missing insulation in the cabin.

    I wonder if the plane is so old that it is one of those which still dumps the "crud" from the toilets straight out the back ... to land on the peasant voters below ?

    If the plane doesn't have a toilet holding tank this would be a gigantic PR nightmare for the Liberals !

    This reminds me of a tweet the Liberal team made:

    "As we taxi to the runway, passed the Conservative and NDP planes. They looked stalled - just like their campaigns!"

    This story just made my day. In all seriousness though, they should take their safety with seriousness. I hope Transport Canada is called to see the matter.................................kind of like the way Elections Canada was called to another matter.

    Fun to watch the Lazy Liberals self destruct. No money in the Liberal pot, could that be because ole' Chretien passed the no corporation donation law knowing it would hurt the Liberals the most. No political stand, could that be because of Dithers Martin. And finally, the teacher Dion. Looks like he should go back to school where he belongs.

    If people didn't like a puffin pooping on Dion, how do they feel about Dion et al pooping on us?
