Classic case of having more political money than political brains.
Because they are seeking to scare Canadians about something which Canadians like: a coalition/cooperation deal. As Harris -Decima found last Summer, 60 per cent of Canadians favour some sort of cooperation between the Liberals and the NDP. It doesn’t scare them at all.
Here’s some other reasons why the ads won’t work. As I’ve noted before:
So why does the (oxymoron alert) Refomatory brain trust continue to scream bloody murder about a “coalition” that doesn’t exist? Beats me. But, as my grandmother used to say: “Never discount the possibility that a political strategy that looks clever is in fact totally stupid, dear.”
As in all things, and as I’ve said many times before, I’m with my grandmother on this one.
UPDATE: A couple of you have asked me what I would recommend the Liberals do. This is what I would have done. (But what do I know?)
