I must stop blogging about stupid Toronto Star editorials, or else this blog would be about nothing else.
So this will be my last Star-bashing post. (Yeah sure).
Anyway, today the Star lashes out against the latest Conservative "attack ads" targeting Liberal leader Stephan Dion.
"With this latest ad" writes the Star, "Harper has again revealed a nasty side to his personality that raises questions about his ability to set a positive tone for Canada. Partisan politics is a rough-and-tumble business. But Canadians rightly expect their political leaders to take a relatively civil and constructive tone, particularly when there is no election taking place. For Harper, though, playing dirty is his preferred style, in sharp contrast to his election pledge to run a clean and civilized administration."
This from a paper which just a few days ago suggested the recent announced tax cuts would destroy civilization as we know it.
And where was the Star's sense of civility in the last two federal elections, the ones in which the Liberals unleashed some of the most vicious attack ads in Canadian history? Seems like the Star editorial writers only disapproves of negative ads when they target their friends.
And as far as nasty personalities go, what about Jean Chretien? Chretien was the most mean-spirited, vindictive Prime Ministers ever to reside at 24 Sussex Dr.
Just ask Paul Martin.
Did the Star ever complain about his personality?
Of course, here's what the Star is really worried about: the Tory attack ads are working.
