Jack Layton knows where he stands, even when he’s sitting

  1. OK… so Michael Ignatieff is offering up pancakes… and he also has the first quintuplet MPs in the history of parliament standing behind him… and you DON'T want me to vote for him?

    Major backfire. Never use tasty breakfast foodstuffs and multiple siblings in attack ads.

    • Wait, isn't that the Senator that Harper appointed despite committing "fraud, or cheating"?
      And the corporation guy grabbing his tax giveaways?

      I wonder how much of the NDP poll slide has been from their YouTube ad campaign. Dippers been getting in my way from getting my crunk junk drunk big time.

    • Mmmmm, pancakes. I'll vote for the guy who makes pancakes.

      Betcha he serves them with good old Canadian maple syrup. He came back to make me pancakes, swoon.

  3. Geez, even the animated Ignatieff blinks too much, lol!!

    "Not so great moments: Attendance" Too good a zinger to pass up!!

    Thumbs up!!

  5. Layton flip-flops on his support of Harper. Depends on which way the wind is blowing….and what the going rate for blackmail is.

    • Yeah the guy who wants to be in everyone's coalition shouldn't be so fast to call flip flop.

      • Exactly. Jack will go home with anybody.

  8. I would have done stategic voting in my riding just to get rid of Harper but I won't switch my vote to the NDP now. I'd sooner waste it voting for the Liberal that may not win then to give to this fool. Layton is handing Harper the election.

    • Though Conservatives struggle with humor, I admire the attempt.

      • Though you struggle with substantive posts, I admire the attempt – not! lol

        • Is that you, Ms Oda?

    • Well knock me down and call me Susan. Nice hat!

  14. It'll be interesting to see how these ads play. There are NDP voters or potential NDP voters who really don't care whether we have a Harper government or a Liberal government. This ad should appeal to them. However, it could turn off potential NDP voters who really do not want a Harper government.
