The Underlying Message In Today's Shuffle

Paul Wells sees an underlying message being sent by Harper to Dion. That message is, "We are coming to get you, Mr. Dion". It is a play right out of the Karl Rove handbook for junior Republicans. His philosophy of politics is to hit a man where he is strongest. Dion is perceived as strong on the environment, so lets set up a hatchet man like Baird to slap him down. I agree it is the main thrust of what is going on today. It certainly has nothing to do with fixing the environment. It will be interesting to see if Wells is correct in his application of past events to future confrontations.
