Other useless convention video

Spotted this at the Liberal leadership convention. They really ought to have thought this one through. One can derive a few meanings from this display:

Surrender your wallet, taxpayer! The Liberals are in town.

Liberating your wallet (to the Liberals) is not quite the example an etymologist would use when pointing out the relation of the words “Liberal” and “liberty”.

(and yes, I know… the display was for fundraising. But sometimes you gotta think about the optics of how you do things in politics)

Kennedy comments on supporting Dion

I ended up at the sparsely attended late night Kennedy hospitality event last and had a chance to meet him. This weekend Kennedy was the kingmaker as he backed Stephane Dion which essentially helped secure his victory for leadership.

Tasha asks Kennedy why he backed Dion and kind of gets an answer.
