The Liberal convention
« on: May 02, 2009, 06:23:28 PM »
I'm not following this at all, but perhaps others are.

I mainly started this thread to warn people that feeds to PB are going to be sunk for the next day or so in Liberal liveblogging.

And look -- I got all the way through that without saying anything sarcastic.  :)

It's been such a bore. The 2006 convention was something for political nuts like me to get excited about. For one thing, there was a leadership race. Even our Canwest controlled media are having trouble drumming up stuff to report.

Been a couple of slow news days generally. Our provincial party leaders are taking time off to prepare for the televised leaders' debate tomorrow (5pm PST).

If it weren't for Cherniak's status updates on fb I'd have no idea it's happening.

Liberal Convention 2012. @ Montebello despite being broke or so they're always telling us. But did you see this?


Bob Rae, spokesthingie for the Liberals and until 2013 I guess. Good thing, because he's out to pasture. He thinks the NDP or Occupy movement and the CPC or the Tea Partiers should stay the F out of the middle ground, because that is 'reserved' apparently, just for the Liberals. (plus there is no where else to go) And those 'extremist' parties villify their opponents, unlike the Liberals (see Tea Partiers and Occupier comments)
Grassbag time. Really. That's what came out of the giant log cabin in Quebec.  :confused

Yeah, I saw that - Bob Rae described the Liberals as the middle ground between the Tea Party and the Occupiers. I feel sorry for someone so out touch with reality.

Bob Rae quits, working as mediator for the Matawa Tribal Council in northern Ont. as their negotiator in dealings with Ontario.  He's a seasoned pro, JT is sure gonna miss him.
