Tories spend big to bash Ignatieff

Superbowl’s over and done for another year. Glad to see the Packers win. I’ve had a marginal interest in them for a bunch of years. Of more interest was this item in today’s Globe & Mail about some Canadian advertising during the game …

"Finally, what would be a hard-hitting sporting contest without some political content? The Harper Conservatives ran one of their anti-Ignatieff ads – “Michael Ignatieff, he didn’t come back for you” – about an hour or so into the Canadian broadcast of the Super Bowl, spurring many to wonder why a party that professes to be uninterested in an election would shell out for such prime ad placement."

Shell out indeed.
