Just like being there


 

Upon safely returning to Ottawa after a few days aboard the Liberal tour, a couple notes for which I did not previously find an excuse to mention in passing.

1. In the wake of Sudbury, Mr. Ignatieff now enters the room to the chorus of Jumpstart by These Kids Wear Crowns. He was previously entering to the upbeat part of Ashley MacIsaac’s Wing Stock.

2. Also since Sudbury, reporters on the Liberal plane have taken to chanting “rise up” as the campaign plane hurtles down the runway for takeoff and then cheering once it takes flight. Mr. Ignatieff seems to take this in good humour, pumping his fist or motioning upward in time with the chanting from the front of the plane.


 

Just like being there

  1. with the chanting from the front of the plane

    and I thought all the cool smart kids sat at the back of the bus plane – after all, it is the safest part of the plane

  3. I was among the overflow crowd to hear from Iggy in North Vancouver. (Saw you there Aaron.)
    Iggy was great. Natural and confident and answered all questions. (I did not especially like a couple of his answers but in general I agree with his views and I can vote enthusiastically for my local Liberal MP!! )

    Iggy can work with other players.
    Harper cannot and reiterates, just today, that he is proud of that fact.
    Help Save Canada!
    Vote for the NDP or Liberal candidate (or Lizze May) most likely to beat Harper's Con-men.

  5. Rise Up

    Seems like we got us a convoy

  6. rise up alright – see if the plane can actually get up[ off the runway which doesn't look to likely now – we are on the home stretch and who knows maybe jack will end up in Stornaway if Iggy keeps up as he is !

  8. Iggy using msm as cannon fodder?

  9. They should play "Knocking on Heaven's Door" as the intro song for the final week of the campaign.

    • "Heaven" being the prime minister's office?

      • Sure, let's go with that interpretation.

    • Nope. Yakkity Sax. It goes well with everything.
