Not surprisingly, the Liberals are licking their chops over the latest allegations concerning former Prime Minister Brian Mulroney.
But I wonder how much political mileage they will get out of this? First off, we are talking about stuff that happened a long, long time ago, and second off, juicy political scandals are the ones where politicians enrich (or appear to enrich) themselves at the expense of the taxpayer.
That's what made the Adscam Scandal such an outrage: the politicians were using our money to fatten the wallets of their buddies.
So far as I can tell, the Mulroney affair lacks such an ingredient.
Still I bet Prime Minister Harper now regrets all those words of praise he has heaped on Mulroney. I know I cringed every time Harper-- in a blatant desire to please Red Tories -- extolled Mulroney's virtues.
In my view, Mulroney was nothing but a crass, political opportunist.
