The Ignatieff Liberals have decided that the Conservatives' patronage is the soft underbelly to erode their public support.
They may well be right. The names Husakos, Manning (Fabian that is), and Finley all speak to the growing pile of patronage in Stephen Harper’s fiefdom.
But have the Liberals really thought this through? Are they really in any position to credibly lecture anyone on using public positions to reward their partisans after their years of doing exactly the same?
These questions should be put to the strategists behind this line of attack ...
You know, brand new Chief of Staff Peter Donolo and his pal Director of Communications Mario Lague. The two former Liberal staffers who came back to the fold after cooling their heels as the Liberal-appointed Consul General of Canada at Milan and the Liberal-appointed Ambassador of Canada to the Republic of Costa Rica.
Your contractor is on the line, Mr Ignatieff. Something about cracks forming in your glass house.
