Ouch!!! This is gonna leave a mark.
Stephen Harper challenges Michael Ignatieff to a debate, one on one, mano-a-mano. Ignatieff gets his gloves on and says: "Anyplace, anytime...let's go"!!! Then Stephen runs and hides.
This would be great drama, the new kid and the bully. Well, it would be if the Conservative leader had any cajones. Rick Mercer is even offering to book a venue and moderate on twitter.
Now Stephen has his media toadies making excuses for him in the press, like George W. Bush speech writer David Frum in the National Post (Column Here). Or Shelly Fralic in the Vancouver Sun saying such a debate would be meaningless (Column Here).
Nobody likes a bully. But even worse is a bully who kicks sand then runs and hides, leaving his friends to make lame excuses.
No wonder Canada lost its place on the U.N. security council. I mean seriously, why give a seat to a country led by by a wimp?
