If the Conservatives are smart they will jump all over that stupid attack ad the Liberals were forced to pull.
I am talking about the ad which subtly suggests Stephen Harper is planning an armed coup.
The ad is ridiculous and what’s worse it makes the Liberals look ridiculous.
And that’s the killer.
In politics there’s two things you never want to be called: a crook or a fool.
Right now the Liberals are looking like both crooks and thanks to this ad -- fools.
If Harper can capitalize on this it will undercut the effectiveness of the other Liberal attack ads – which are not that great in the first place – and deflate the much anticipated Martin counter-attack.
It’s going to be an interesting couple of weeks.
