Dion and May: aka The New Red Green Show

Rumour has it that sometime later today Stephane Dion and Elizabeth May will be holding a joint press conference to announce that the Liberals will not be fielding a candidate against May in the next federal election. CTV has the story here.

Wow; Dion is demonstrating his leadership skills again as he shows a total lack of respect for every Liberal supporter in Central Nova. I wonder how the local Liberal EDA is taking to the news that all the work they have done for the LPC in the riding has been a complete and utter waste of time and effort all because the dear leader Dion has dictated it so. I think the sound of Liberal Party Membership Cards being ripped in half is echoing all across the riding right about now.

To think that some Liberals wonder why they are having problems at the grass roots level. Stupid, stupid, stupid.

My apologies to The Red Green Show.

Update 10:40 am: I just watched the Red Green show live on CTV Newsnet and it is now official. May has just sold out her own party and Dion has taken the 308 riding strategy from the Liberal convention and tossed it out the window.

Would this not be similar to having Anne McClelland and Joe Clark deciding to mate in Alberta? There might be enough idiots in the Maritimes to look at this as an attractive option, which speaks volumes about their lack of clarity on both issues affecting all of Canada and the implications of what these 2 assholes are planning.

I just christened them DiMay on another post but I love RedGreen. Like I said on that comment- maybe it is time for a contest to come up with a new name for the duo!

It is crazy for the Liberals to do this to their own supporters, but what the hell is May doing to 'her' own party?

The Greens formed while the Liberals were in power. Why? Well because the Libs were and still are the party of all talk no action, so they started the Greens. Now May thinks that Dion can solve all of Canada's problems, and that he should be PM. Talk about pissing off your grass roots!!

I think a revolt of Greens is about to start.

I think someone in the Liberals should duct tape Dions mouth. Did you hear what he said about "floridas" not getting their votes counted in the US election. Who or what is a floridas?

Stupid is as stupid does.

I cannot wait to see what Liberal MPs are going to say about this. Martha Hall Finley was on The Duffy show just yesterday and said it was a bad idea.

Why would you care? As if anyone in the CPC really cared for or showed any respect for the voters of Vancouver-Kingsway. We're still pissed and will be for a long time.

And yet the CPC (ahd Harper) was supposed to be sooooo different, accountable, and tranparent from the previous clowns.

Pot. Kettle. Black.

Hope Potato Pete gets clobbered and he can go and borrow another neighbour's dog and blubber abnd cry to his haeart's content.

Boo hooo hooo. Whaaaa Whaaaa.

Party loyalty is gone. Look at Garth for example. Hes been bought and sold for the lowest buck, and now Elizabeth May a woman who he CAMPAIGNED For in London has joined him at the trough.

Pigs at the trough make sloppy company.

Enjoy Garth/Liz.... SOOOOOOOOOOOOOoweeeeeeeeeeeeeeee

Anon 5:16. A little bitter are we?

People cross the floor all the time, it is a tired old discussion and crossing is part of our parliamentary process so deal with it already.

Apples vs oranges when you compare the 2 issues.

Perhaps I should add some duck tape to that picture. After all both of their parties are going to need some repair after this fiasco...

Thanks for the link...
