They're counting on a couple of things: firstly that this load of crap will have legs, and secondly, to the extent that it does, that our reaction is going to be indignant, puffed-up outrage so they and their fanboys can mock us for our sanctimoniousness and snicker at themselves like 12-year-old boys.
Let's not give them that. They want the conversation to be all about the sleazy innuendo. They want people to be asking each other whether it happened and whether there was a cover-up and whether there's anything more to it.
Fuck that. Here's a better question, and a better topic for conversation between now and the time the polls open on Monday:
Has Sun Media apologized for the steaming mess it's left on the national sidewalk? Any time anyone runs into Sam Pazzano, Brian Lilley and / or David Akin, the only thing to ask is: Have you apologized yet?
- Just another sleaze job from the Toronto Police
- Coyne posts the best tweet of the election
- Let's stay on message: Harper's legacy of shame
