The "IFFY ELECTION SCREAM"

Oh my... remember how the "Dean Scream" scuttled Howard Dean's 2004 bid for the Democratic nomination?

Now we have Michael Ignatieff... and the IFFY SCREAM.



My newest prediction... NO ELECTION. Thanks Iffy!!!

    Keep it up - you're spending money the Liberals can't afford to, and gaining votes for the Liberals at the same time.

    The Iffy "Dean scream" is just too good to pass up. We pretty well HAVE to use it in some kind of ad. And these two ads are as good as any.

    I think the main point we want to make to voters is: Do you want this unhinged guy to run the affairs of the country ? Add that to his questionable loyalty, his cheap shots at Canada, his lack of knowledge, and Iffy looks less and less appealing.

    Sorry Lib partisans, but this is politics, where just about anything goes. If the voters think we are hitting below the belt (as happened with the Chretien "face" ad), then we will pay the price.

    "Liberals" and their media comrades are always whining and crying, their like the wimp on the beach who keeps getting sand kicked in their face. Politics is a blood sport, and framing you're opponent as a crass, opportunistic, power at any cost interloper is fair game. The whining over these latest ads is nauseating, and you can bet if the tables were turned there would be no such outrage. These ads are not only funny, they are accurate and effective. It's okay for the media to cheerlead Iggo on when he made this speech, but it's not okay to make fun of it. Iggo and the "Liberals" are forcing an election for their own crass political reasons and that is the message of these ads. Pooping Puffins? Oh, the humanity.

    CC: Why not include all of the ads? You've included so many before. But for some reason, if you were to include the "job killing taxes" ad (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=97uT-6vKjk0&feature=youtu.be) along with the "needless election" ad, you'd make it quite evident that the "yes yes yes" is taken out of context in at least one ad (and, as it turns out, it is taken out of context in both).

    I saw Pierre Poilievre the other day saying "they're not attack ads" because the CPC is just "quoting" him. True. And yet--as your multiple uses of the "yes yes yes" quote reveal--oh so false.

    SeanM: If the tables were turned there would be no such outrage? I'm waiting for the tables to turn, and to see if you're right or wrong. The tables may not turn given how "unnecessary" elections are if Harper is PM. Nevertheless, I'm inclined to think that you are wrong (Harper et al are experts at the politics of outrage). But I'm willing to wait and see.

    As for forcing an election... how many of the previous elections have been triggered by Harper?

    As for elections being "unnecessary"... I'd hope that we can recognize that there are (or should be) constitutional regulations that determine when an election is or is not necessary. The CPC thinks an election is necessary if they can win a majority, and unnecessary if they believe that they cannot. That doesn't make them different than any other political party necessarily. But it would be nice if political parties were more honest about situations like this... I'm not holding my breath.

    Roger Smith of CTV wants props for your use of the comparison between Dean and Ignatieff--which of course are in no way alike. You Cons are trying too hard. And if there is anyone who is power hungry, it's Harpo--Mr. Power Over Principle. But I know that doesn't bother you conbot diehards an fanboys, and makes these "attempts" all the more laughable. Keep swinging, it only reveals desperation.

    Income tax cuts were repealed by Harper in 2006 and replaced with a cut to consumption taxes resulting in a net loss for Canadian savings for two years prior to the biggest recession of Canadian history.

    Income trust taxes - repealed by Flaherty seven months later in 2006 going back on a cornerstone of their 2006 economic platform.

    Airport security tax - raised in 2010.

    EI premiums - raised in 2010.

    Who is the tax man? Let's ask Harper!

    Something's wrong. It says "This video has been removed by user." Hmmm, wonder why?

    First off, I think Ignatieff's "YES" chant really wasn't all that embarrassing.

    Secondly, the Howard Dean clip you showed is not even the right one. He yelled "Yee-Haw" if you recall.

    Details, right?
