"Ignatieff has deeper roots here"? I don't understand: were we somehow being asked to vote for those ghosts of his dad or his grandparents? Yeah, he personally has "roots" in pre-Charter Canada, and I guess if we ever need a Prime Minister of pre-Charter Canada, he'll make a fine one.

There seem to be quite a lot of crazy people in the Maclean's commentverse who think the hair and beard IN MY PHOTO are growing. Perhaps Ignatieff should have concentrated his efforts more strongly on the crucial assisted-living and sheltered-workshop vote?

Or could it be relevant that Morton has devoted the LAST 30 years entirely to Canada? No, you're right, I don't see a difference at all. Tar and feathers for everyone!

I didn't bet against Duncan at even odds. I told people while the polls were still open that I pegged her chances of getting back in at 70%-80%.

"For how long are we going to have to endure these shallow digs at his patriotism?" Obviously not for very much longer, dear.

If some of that NDP *vote* gain comes at the expense of the Conservatives, then obviously you won't see the Conservatives benefit nearly as strongly from it. That said... where's the evidence that much of this is going to happen? Everything the Tories do is designed to create a rock-solid and motivated base in Ontario. The Conservative mood in the country generally is cranky and vengeful. The Tories are doing fine in the "certain to vote" numbers. You'll presumably see plenty of right-wing Liberals--Bay Streeters who don't want Layton picking the Governor of the Bank of Canada; people still seething at Bob Rae's government--jumping ship toward the Conservatives as the magnitude of the disaster becomes apparent.
We'll know pretty quickly if I'm an idiot.

I don't understand the question.
