Liberal leader Stephane Dion needs a new spin doctor.
I say that because the Liberal Party spin on the Quebec election is really lame.
Essentially, Dion is denouncing the "intrusion" of Prime Minister Stephen Harper into the campaign, saying the way he linked additional limitations on federal spending powers to the results of the election was "blackmail."
This intervention, says Dion, tightened the race and distanced the Liberal Party from majority support.
Is anybody really going to buy this nonsense?
Seems to me, the majority of Canadians are pretty happy with an election result which relegates the separatists to third place.
And if Harper's "intrusion" helped to bring this about, so much the better.
Perhaps all this is incomprehensible to Dion and the Liberals who seem to think everyone is rooting for Liberal majorities.
