We're not backing down! Except when votes are called

Reader Paul just pointed out that the Liberal website has changed. (07:38:00 PM)

Heh.

To refresh your memory, it looked like this earlier today.

Update - Headlines still there after all. This blogger obviously needs to get some sleep. Anyone else notice any changes?

* * * *
More huffing & puffing - Tories easily survive confidence vote. (Check out the wording of the Liberal amendment!)


Oh and what did PM Harper say earlier today? Something about this being the biggest mistake the Leader of the Liberal Party ever made or something to that effect? Check out Steve Janke. It's a bombshell.

Tuesday Update:

Mike Brock - Parade of Incompetence.

O.K. Now please check out the Liberal website and tell me if the headline in question is still there (refer to Mike's link just above). I don't see it anymore.

Yet - "Liberals won't back off bribery allegations..." (Globe)

Star - Tories' support stays steady.

CTV - Harper Government easily survives final budget vote.

Did you alter the NP page to line out the caption, or did the Post?

They did. Probably worried about a libel suit. ;)

Check out MDL for the original.

or just go to the liberal website. The headline is still there, which does make me wonder what the point of this post is?

Joanne (True Blue) said...

Joseph, you're right. I see that the headlines are still indeed there - it's just that they seem to have added more to their revolving headline feature.

o.k. Maybe they haven't back down - yet. It's only a matter of time.

I've been following this whole Cadman pseudo-scandal all weekend and a few things bother me. Firstly good on Harper, Alberta Aardvark has the whole list of supposed scandals foisted on us by those evil Cons. The libel suit will force the Libs to at least have a scandal before screaming "SCANDAL".But a few things about the "Cadscam" don't add up; The author of this biography claims to be a friend of Chuck but then gets a political enemy, Paul Martin to write the forward. So if Paul Martin read the book he was aware of the supposed offer. But what of the offer made by Paul Martin who also met with Chuck Cadman? Either way the author gets more free publicity from this "SCANDAL" than if he went on Letterman.

Exactly. The timing is curious, to say the least.

I think that the author and Martin are getting off way too easy on all of this.

Re: Harper strategy - brilliant!

I think Martin is getting off way too easy on this too. What was the Liberal offer to Mr. Cadman. They had many visits to him also.

Joanne (True Blue) said...

Good question Ruth. We need to pursue that angle.

The media seems shocked that a sitting PM would sue other "honourable members."

But Mr. Dion sued Gilles Duceppe a couple of years ago.

"Duceppe agrees to apologize for linking Dion to sponsorships

Pamphlet went to 22 ridings. Part of confidential out-of-court settlement

JACK AUBRY, CanWest News Service
Published: Tuesday, May 08 2007

Bloc Quebecois leader Gilles Duceppe will publicly apologize to Stephane Dion as part of an out-of-court settlement over a $400,000 lawsuit after the Bloc published a pamphlet in 2005 linking the Liberal leader to the sponsorship scandal.

Duceppe has agreed to apologize for the offending pamphlet, which was distributed to thousands of homes in 22 ridings in Quebec just before the launch of the 2006 winter election. …."

You are a valuable resource. :)

Not unless you're dark, sticky, and smell of kerosene.

Hey, didn't I date you in high school?
