Another day, another "IFFY"

Today's "IFFY-watch" is courtesy of the Toronto Sun...that's now three days in a row, and at least three different media outlets, that have picked up on the "IFFY" theme.
Quebec melee makes Iggy look iffy
Last Updated: 2nd October 2009, 4:26am

The first rule in a multi-person brawl is, don't go down. There's something about the sight of a combatant hitting the ground that brings out the worst in humankind.

It's like that in politics, too.

Consider the current plight of Michael Ignatieff, former Harvard professor, television personality, public intellectual and award-winning author.

Before last week's imbroglio with his erstwhile Quebec lieutenant, Denis Coderre, Ignatieff was struggling. But now? The pile-on is unanimous, omnipresent and merciless.

Don Martin in the National Post; Chantal Hebert and James Travers in the Toronto Star. Margaret Wente and Norman Spector in the Globe.

Even the Liberal-leaning Lawrence Martin, Jean Chretien's biographer, has put the boots in. He refers to Ignatieff, not as Iggy, but as "Iffy." A belittling nickname derived from another. Can there be anything worse?

    As easy Ignatieff is as easy he may depart but not without taking the LPOC with him.

    I wonder who is laughing at whom-Ignatieff at the LPOC or the LPOC at Ignatieff.

    There is also an inclination(mine) that Ignatieff will have a field day describing the famous liberal medias of canada and how they managed to keep the 'most corrupt LP in canadian history- afloat.

    Forgot to add; As easy as Ignatieff came into the party; is as easy....
