Well.. I for one would be worried about Antonio's health if he got too positive. I'd ask if something was wrong ;)

No, please englighten us...your replies contain no substance except embarassing a few people here and there with your constant gossip and endless whining.

I'm actually shocked that you'd actually go that low and threaten someone who's been behind you since day 1 like that. You'd go as far to criticize someone's views with your perception of their physical appearance.

Why should I care? You're always right anyways.

Best of luck in all of your undertakings. I'm out!

Cherniak calls you a jackass on your site?? you've hit the big time, buddy.

Anyway - don't hurt Jason's feelings. Everytime he posts, I think to myself, "I believe this is the first step to a Tory majority"

The only thing less cool/relevant then Jason Cherniak is the industry of hand-ringing bloggers he has spawned. It's a tie, at least.

It needs to be said.

Cherniak is not an analyst - he's a promoter. Worse, a lawyer-promoter.

He starts with his conclusion:

1) The Free World as we know it is completely dependant on the continued and uninterrupted success of the Liberal Party of Canada/Ontario.

2) Stephane Dion is the most (see: only) human being capable of leading Canada into an economically prosperous, socially progressive and environmentally perfect world.

3) The only reason other people do not agree with the above statements is they lack the necessary intellect/information. Or they're a racist ***hole.

Then he justifies those statements however he can.

What a funny thread of comments.

Three observations:

1) Antonio's observations are spot-on

2) He hit Jason where hit hurts -- see Jason's "intelligent" comeback

3) Tribe has free time on his hands enough for an entire army. What does he do for a living again?

Nope.. an entirely volunteer position Chucker.

Werner is wandering around blogland again I see. I don't blame him really; when no one comes to visit his blog to comment on his inane commentary, I'd feel lonely too.

Side Comment to "Fady" re: "Whine Blog of the Year" comment: yeah, yours with a Nov 2005 last post would never be in the running for even that.

But more on topic, Cherniak is just politically naive. However, what if the real Liberal objective is to neutralize the Green party as a "vote parking location" for at least the next election? Easy to do when you have a "me, me" self-centred keener like May who just loves publicity. Then watch the Greenies go into disarray, "what do we stand for" questions, pro and anti May factions duking it out, etc.

Now, just one thing to do ... figure how to stop all those votes being "lent" to Jack.

Tin foil conspiracy, or a shred of truth. One riding for neutraliztion of the Greens? Worth it?

Sorry, Scott, but my blog is getting so many visitors every day that I have to get worried about exceeding my host's bandwidth (and Typepad's bandwidth is considerable!).

Even by Fuddle's standards, this time he's especially full of Duddle. Right after May became leader he proposed that Liberals vote for her so she could get into the House. Quote (and note Fuddle's typically snide dismissal of of sitting Liberal MP Roger Cuzner): "Demiurge a dit...Whatever, I'm sure Antonio wants to see May in so badly that he is sticking to his guns and is calling for progressive Liberals to vote for her in Cape Breton.

I can work with. I'm sure we can keep Roger Cuzner somewhat occupied. Besides, la rumor mill tells me its Dingwall's old seat. Yay LIBERAL NOSTALGIA!"

Gee, I wonder why, when Fuddle proposes a red-green coalition, it's right, but when Dion does it, it's wrong. Why Fuddle uses Con attack lines to attack his own leader? Could it be that Fuddle is:
a) Not Very Smart?
b) A Dick?
c) Against "Tous ensemble"?
d) A Bad Loser & A Bad Liberal?
e) All of the Above?

Answer: e.

The complete text of Fuddle's post is below. I'm sure M. Dion wouldn't
mind giving him credit for the idea.

The Green Party has elected a charismatic leader with more credibility on the environment than the Liberals and the NDP put together.

We have to get Elizabeth May elected into the House of Commons. The Green Party has always got the short end of the Canadian political
stick because it is not recognized by the Mainstream Media as a
credible alternative to the four other parties.

In terms of getting results for the environment, the Green Party could
do much more than the NDP, hell, they are the experts. I don't really like one issue parties all that much, but given the Liberal track record on the environment, I think our party could use a swift kick in the ass on the environment.

Elizabeth May will get results for everyone if we just give her a
chance. Her tireless work in the pro-environment lobby has given her
the expertise. There is only one riding smart enough to accomplish the job, smart enough to understand how important it is for the Canadian
political discourse to elect Canada's first Green Party member.

Ottawa Centre, currently held by the NDP, is a riding filled with two extremes, hill staffers, and people who cant stand hill staffers. Their spirit helped elect Ed Broadbent when others thought it was impossible to defeat Richard Mahoney (cough!) Nobody will cry over the loss of Paul Dewar, and the green voters, about 5% of the voting population will finally get their voice into Parliament. I have to ask all NDP voters in the riding to park their vote with the Greens in that riding, just this once.

Hum, Antonio, she just announced she would run in Cape-Breton.

And before running in Ottawa Centre, I think a Vancouver seat
would be easier for her to win.

And, anyway, Canada's Green Party isn't that green : Both Sierra
Club and Greenpeace gave us better environnmental scores than the

Still, it can only get better with May instead of Harris.

Whatever, I'm sure Antonio wants to see May in so badly that he is
sticking to his guns and is calling for progressive Liberals to vote
for her in Cape Breton.

Any woman who says the Liberal Budget in 2005 was the Greenest in
