I want to make one thing clear - we are a nation of ingrates. Just look at this:
When Mr. Dion entered the Liberal leadership race, critics scoffed that the decision underscored a foolish and typically stubborn refusal to accept his limitations. How could a Quebec candidate, intoned the good and the wise of the Liberal Party establishment, defeat titans such as Michael Ignatieff and Bob Rae for the top job in a party tired of leaders from Quebec? How could Mr. Dion hope to win with less money and profile, fewer i less flair, creaky English and only middling caucus support? Liberals, and certainly Canadians, would never elect someone who looked like only a slightly better model of the former TV pitch man for Canadian Tire.That is just rude. I learned my lesson - and rightly so. I thought were we now all in agreement that the Canadian Tire ad couple was an icon we all should have pride in. Is this what people mean by the evil that is the mainstream media?
