Ignatieff GAFFE gets bigger, Liberal spokesman now calls ALL Conservative MP's "devils"!

Somehow, the Liberals find a way to make a small problem even WORSE... Ignatieff spokesman Michael O'Shaughnessy now says that ALL Conservative MP's are "devils"!!!
Michael O'Shaughnessy, Mr. Ignatieff's press secretary, stuck by his boss's verbal blast on Monday when pressed to elaborate. In an email, he said that the whiff of sulphur is "quite evident when one faces the Conservative government on a daily basis."
Unbelievable... once again, the Liberals manage to turn a one day story into a two or three day story!

It was low-blow, Republican-style gutter politics when the Leader of the Opposition alluded to the Right Hon. Prime Minister being Satan himself... but now to turn around and imply that ALL the MP's in the Government are the "spawn of Satan"?

Talk about being completely out of touch with reality, or the views of Canadians in general... before this incident, only the extreme lunatic left-wing would stoop to such rhetoric. Very few Canadians would echo these outlandish sentiments, or even consider agreeing with the comparison. But now they seem to be making it part of the "official" Liberal platform... "The Harper Conservatives are not only mean-spirited people with a hidden agenda, but they're the spawn of Satan himself!!!"

Hey, haven't we seen this one before? Oh yea, we have... remember Rick Mercer's spoof ad from the 2006 election? (not on YouTube anymore!)
"Stephen Harper owns a dragon... he keeps it in a shed"
"Stephen Harper drinks his own blood... we saw him"
"We're not making this up... we're not allowed to make things up"

Yea, we're really not making this up... these aren't the funny spoof comments of a CBC comedian. These are the kinds of things that a man who wants to be Prime Minister of our great nation says of his opponents. So here's my question... do you really want that kind of guy running the country? Someone who will figuratively, and quite literally it would seem, demonize his opponents?

I don't think Canadians are up for that. Mr. Ignatieff, your attack was DISGUSTING. It's time to apologize.

UPDATE: First, Ignatieff spokesman Micheal O'Shaughnessy tried to pass off the comment saying Iggy was talking about "rotten eggs" when he said "smell of sulfur". Ammm, RIIIIIGHT... you're telling me a "learned" Harvard professor didn't understand the implications of the analogy he was using? I find that hard to believe.

And besides, if that's true Mr. O'Shaughnessy, why did your Leader feel the need to tell Canada AM that his comment was "just a joke"??? (looking for footage)

    When desperation sets in people, and political parties, will say the stupidest things.

    I think an army of puffins defecating on the entire liberal caucus will be more than enough to settle the score. We could actually afford to run that ad all summer too.
