This Hallowe’en, Uncle Joe Volpe wants you to trick-or-treat for his Liberal leadership. If you don’t have a trust-fund to give to Joe, you can go door-to-door collecting money dressed up as mummy, a witch, or a newly minted, yet deceased, member of the Liberal Party of Canada!
Trick-or-treat for Volpe!
Make your own fundraising box!

A special thanks to the frog-lady blog for the South Park likeness of Uncle Joe that was used as one small (but amusing) design element to create these boxes!
Stories in the written press (newspaper/internet) about Puppy-gate: 376
Number of news stories about announced by-elections: 97
Number of news stories about the Conservative government’s Dangerous Offenders legislation: 127
Has the Canadian news media gone to the dogs?
Blogging Tories co-founder Craig Smith seems to think so too
(number of stories from Google News likely to change over time. These numbers were a snapshot of about 7am this morning)
BONUS: Researching this article, I found perhaps the most bizarre, incoherent hodgepodge of anti-Conservative blather to date on puppy-gate and it comes courtesy of Toronto Star’s “Slinger”. Tie Domi, puppy-gate, a Peter MacKay assault fantasy, nazis, sexism and a critique on imagined Conservative (and Canadian) prejudice against Islam all at once? Who knew that the symptoms of Conservative Derangement Syndrome had parallels with those of ADHD?
I just received an email from the Liberal Party of Canada offering me free media credentials to the Liberal convention in late November / early December.
I hear that my pal Staples is the other Blogging Tory that’s been offered the gig.
I suppose that means I have to start paying attention to the leadership race. That Volpe’s still got a shot, no?
/ I keed, I keed…
Thanks Liberal mind-trust!
UPDATE: I’m lucky to be going for free as a media hack, but my friend Cherniak needs some help with his delegate fee. I’d ask that Liberals that read this blog to go and help him out if you can.
