How to create warped incentives

Shorter John Ibbitson:
The NDP is being entirely responsible in preparing for the possible outcomes of the next federal election, and must be punished for it.

    An even shorter John Ibbitson: The commies are coming! The commies are coming!

    1. That's a safe shorter Ibbitson much of the time. But this seems a bit different, particularly with Harper 2004 being presented as a cautionary tale - it's not so much an attack on left-wing parties as on any party who doesn't go out of its way to conceal what Ibbitson acknowledges to be necessary work. (So much for transparency in politics.)
