Michael Ignatieff’s desperation is coming through loud and clear with a couple of very weird things he said Friday.
The first was this bizarre “rise up” chant referring to a Bruce Springsteen song of which I highly doubt the Boss was thinking about parliamentary politics when he wrote it. Video of it can be found here at the 4:30 mark.
The second was with his over-the-top hubris equating Stephen Harper to Middle East dictatorships:
“This is the kind of thing you’d expect maybe in Egypt or Syria or some country that doesn’t know democracy” (see here)
This was in reference to the University of Guelph faux-scandal (see here). Iggy of course forgets to mention that the Liberals stopped another vote at the University of Toronto in 2006.
I’m wondering if we will now see the media stop propping up Iggy as he will only drag them down even further in the public’s mind if they jump-the-shark along with him.
h/t to Wilson for finding the “rise up” video portion at CTV
