The Professor Versus the Populist

If Ignatieff becomes leader of the Liberals it will be the pontificating pompous Professor versus the Pulsimonious Prairie Populist. There I said it, loqacious alliterations and drooling adjectives.

MP and academic star Michael Ignatieff, fast becoming the high-profile front-runner in the leadership race, said the choice facing the party comes down to "who among us has the best chance of defeating Stephen Harper? Beating Mr. Harper means defeating his narrative."

Damn I wish I paid more attention to Cultural Studies so I would understand all this grand narrative, deconstructionist, post-modern politics of our Harvard man. Actually its just good old fashioned Canadian Whig politics.

So he is going to bore us all to death, gawd can the man be more expressionless, droll, dry and monotone, wait those were Harpers qualities, and Ignatieff has them and in spades.

Ignatieff vs Harper the narrative, or story line, will be little Dr. Michael sonorously saying Me Too as he has done to date on major issues like Afghanistan. Tweddle Dee and Tweedle Dum.
