Implementing Strategy

The MSM is beginning to put shoe leather on their regular strategy of divide and conquer against the Conservatives. By regularly highlighting any tiny tension among the Tories ('Harper didn't wave to me yesterday'; 'Mackay didn't think my tie was cool'), the MSM is able to caricature the Tories as perpetually infighting. This ignores the continuous the stealth stabbing that goes on in the Liberal party as a matter of course. On top of this, however, is the pleasure the MSM has in linking the CPC with Brian Mulroney at every turn. Mulroney is a well-hated figure among many in Canada, which is why the Toronto MSM likes to bring his name up often, or even write books about him.

Yup, they've been focusing on Mackay at a desperate level to try and deflect away from Dingwall and all the other issues the LIEberals have.

I agree with ABF 100% - pure deflection.

But I suspect the teflon coating on the Libs is wearing thin. I mean, how many times can you use the old tricks before even the folks riding the short bus have figured it out.

It is amazing to see how easily the Ontario electorate can be manipulated by such thin tactics, and yet they are!

Will Albertans be manipulated at the provincial level to keep the Tory status quo? Even though many Albertans are calling for significant change, will the Alberta MSM attempt to marginalize such voices?

I think your seeing an underlying attempt to do that already. Both the SPA and Alliance have to get the leadership issues out of the way, and get this show on the road.
