On one of those other election websites, Rob Silver raises a probably valid concern about video of Michael Ignatieff firing a rifle found on the Conservative party’s new attack site. Why the clip is there in the first place is hard to figure. But I note that when Mr. Ignatieff first fires the gun, the subsequent explosion appears roughly where Mr. Dion’s head is placed on the website’s main page.
At best, the clip is pointless. At worst, it’s a new kind of tastelessness.
For the record, a request for explanation has been sent to the Conservative war room.
