Epic flail

I can only assume the Libs decided to make their latest ad by recording the first ideas blurted out in an anti-NDP brainstorming session without considering how they (a) fit together, or (b) fit into the broader campaign.

And I won't complain about the contradictory messages and general incoherence. But here's a helpful hint: when the loudest political machine in Canadian history has spent five years using taxes and crime as its main messages against you, you're not going to make gains on anybody suddenly echoing those exact themes in an ad against another party. About all that choice might accomplish is to help out the Harper Cons - which once again seems to be something the Libs are entirely willing to do in order to try to stop the NDP.

[Edit: fixed wording.]
