Liberal Witch Hunt

Shorter Rob Silver: Have you now,or have you ever been, a member of the Communist Party Bloc Quebecois? According to Mr. Silver, once you have tasted from the well of separatism, you are no longer qualified to hold office in another party. Oh Liberals, it is so sad to see you reduced to Bloc baiting. Desperate times, I suppose. Oh, and I wonder if Jean Lapierre thinks of all this? You know Jean, Martinite Quebec strongman and co-founder of the Bloc Quebecois.

  1. "Reduced to"?

    They've been winning elections on it for *years*!

    What do you think kept Pierre Trudeau in power for so long?

  2. Well, it seems different now that they have to use Conservative Party Memos to set their talking points.

  3. Oh, and I forgot to mention the other co-founder of the Bloc Quebecois. His name escapes me, but I remember he was a Conservative.

  4. You know my line -- amused.

    I'm pretty sure she was pulling more of an Atwood maneuvre than a Bouchard.

  5. Shouldn't the NDP be using this to their advantage? So Turmel is an ex-Bloquiste that migrated to an NPD that shares some substantial left-wing territory with the Bloc but without the separatist part. Doesn't that make her the poster child for the orange wave that swept the province?

  6. Anon. After sleeping on it, I think you are right.
