Frank Graves, CBC (and Liberal Party) pollster: ‘I told them that they should invoke a culture war. Cosmopolitanism versus parochialism, secularism versus moralism, Obama versus Palin, tolerance versus racism and homophobia, democracy versus autocracy. If the cranky old men in Alberta don’t like it, too bad. Go south and vote for Palin.’
Michael Ignatieff: "One of the things I took away from the experience is it awoke particularly strong feeling in the West. I’m in this country to unite Canadians, not divide them, and I took the messages from the West very seriously. There was a genuine feeling of anger on that issue, and we all have to learn from that."
Abortion motion anyone?
How about the gun registry?
It looks like Ignatieff is already taking advice from the grave in spite of what he himself has said repeatedly about not trying to divide Canadians.
Be sure to catch CBC's Power and Politics this afternoon. I hear that Frank Graves will be on with Kory Teneycke, which should be very entertaining, and it's Thursday so time for 'point of order' with our old friend Scott Reid who I hear may be making some type of clarification.
