POSTED RESPONSE TO A COLUMN BY LAWRENCE MARTIN IN TORONTO'S GLOBE AND MAIL
Let Ignatieff be himself?
God, what a treat that will be for voters.
Let him drone on in his drab tone.
Let him display his arrogant and stand-offish attitude.
Let him display his striped trousers and silk stockings while crossing his legs on podiums across the country.
Let him speak about relatively trivial points while the great issues of the sweep past him.
Let him blubber about the democratic values his entire sordid little political career in Canada has worked against.
Let him smile his sardonic smile and be self-satisfied about his changing his mind about past support for torture and mass murder in Iraq.
God, I wish the Liberal Party would come to its senses and dump this political albatross.
