The Harper people have just issued a series of ads attacking Stephane Dion. The ads claim Dion is a poor leader, ineffectual on the environment and ignorant of foreign affairs. Some claim these ads cost a half a million dollars and one will play to the audience of the Super Bowl on Sunday. It is all well and good to say these ads don’t work, that they will backfire but in fact all the evidence shows that they do work. The purpose of the Tories with this enormous expenditure of money is to define Harper as a weakling before he his has time to define himself. Especially in view of the fact that these ads work, is it legitimate to show them especially to millions of people around the world on this Sunday’s Super Bowl?
