Gee, do ya think “Grit Girl” is a Liberal operative of some sort? Or maybe even a certain “private citizen” perhaps? She, and I use that term hesitantly, was pretty quick off the mark with a fairly slick new video slamming Harper’s economic action plan that utilizes Statcan figures from this morning’s release of the unemployment toll for February. And there’s even a full-blown website derisively mocking the Harper stimulus plan, of which it’s a component.
If so — and it’s just pure speculation on my part, although I’m certain that Sherlock Janke will be ferreting around to get confirmation — I guess the Liberals can hardly complain about Conservative attack ads, as it seems they’ve gotten the jump on things with this campaign, albeit in a rather stealthy way. Furthermore, (again… it’s just a guess on my part, remember) but this would be a tad hypocritical, no? Considering that Ignatieff has vigorously denounced the Conservatives for playing partisan political games in the midst of an economic crisis, I mean.
Note: The video has been killed by the pinheads at CTV/Globemedia due to some unspecified copyright violation. But I’m leaving it there anyway. If a new version comes along (which I’d fully expect in short order) I’ll swap that in.
Update: Video is back now!
