Liberal election goofs.

What are they drinking at the Canadian Liberal party headquarters?

First Scott Reid, the party leader's director of communications, suggested that parents would spend a no-strings-attached child-care grant promised by the opposition Conservatives on " beer and popcorn"; then party officials distributed material accusing Stephen Harper (the Conservative leader) and Gilles Duceppe (the leader of the separatist Bloc Quebecois) of making deals to break up the country -- along with a photograph of the two talking at a Holocaust memorial; and now Mike Klander, the executive vice-president of the Liberal party's Ontario wing has written in his blog that he thinks " Jack Layton is an asshole" [Layton is the leader of the third-place New Democratic Party] and suggested that Layton's wife, Olivia Chow, was "separated at birth" from a chow chow dog.

I remember pundits suggesting that the 2004 Federal election would have been won by Stephen Harper and the Conservative party if they could simply have kept their mouths closed; I wonder if we're going to look back at the 2006 election and say the same thing about Paul Martin and the Liberal party.
