Whose line is it anyway? Add to ...

I thought the line of the day yesterday originally belonged to Tom Clark of CTV's Power Play, who said of Iggy's posturing that "he drew a line in the sand and then erased so much of it you could fit a prime ministerial limo through it." Though after watching Mr. Ignatieff's game plan get cut to pieces by CBC's At Issue panel, I think Chantal Hebert's comment, paraphrasing, about "even Mr. Dion with his mangled syntax could have delivered a clearer message than Ignatieff" might be my new favorite. Certainly the last thing Ignatieff wants is the Dion comparison. It is political poison.

Ironically Ignatieff now needs the PM's help to get out of this mess he has created. We'll see how that unfolds over the afternoon. Sometimes you can win without beating the life out of your opponent.
