Fox promoted, looks forward to new position as head of chicken coop

While it may be a case of keeping your enemies even closer, the promotion by Stephane Dion of Michael Ignatieff super-supporter Denis Coderre, shows that the calvacade of big mistakes from the Liberal leader's office continues unabated.

Dion is candidly admitting that his own image needs polishing and, as well, it's believed he's getting ready to name a new Quebec lieutenant, possibly MP Denis Coderre, a former immigration minister.

I'm sure Denis Coderre will improve things for the Liberal Party in Quebec, just don't expect the infrastructure to be in place for the next election, more likely the results of his efforts wiill come to fruition in the election after next, when Michael Ignatieff is leader of the Liberal Party, and far too late to help Dion.

Dion: What to do, what to do... I know, support a terrorist!

Reeling from an ignominious defeat in this weeks by-elections in Quebec, including the loss of Liberal redoubt Outremont, what has Stephane Dion planned to resurrect his fast plummeting leadership?

It's not what I would advise him to do, but Stephane Dion is going to be backing the effort to have Canadian-born terrorist Omar Khadr returned to Canada.

No joke.

Stephane Dion spent the day following the Quebec defeat riding a tractor in rural Ontario, where he has zero prospects of victory. Then follows that up the next day by coming to the defence of Canada's most notorious terrorist.

It begs the question, is the infamous Liberal mole running Stephane Dion's agenda!?

Happy Jack

And he's got reason to be. Mulclair is the real deal, having the charismatic MP in the NDP caucus is a big bonus. However, it is also likely Jack just recruited his own replacement.

Peter Mansbridge questions Stephane Dion's Afghan credibility

An oldy, but a goody.

Peter Mansbridge: When you look at other countries — the U.S., Britain, the Dutch who are facing a big vote, parliamentary delegations go a lot. Why have you personally not gone to Afghanistan?

Stephane Dion: I will do my best to go, Peter, but in all fairness, you cannot dispute that I did a lot since I am a leader in order to travel everywhere in Canada.

Mansbridge: This is the issue that you say is crucial and you want the government to take a particular stand, and yet you haven’t been there.

Dion: I will do my best to go there.

Mansbridge: All right, we’ll leave it at that.
