attack and attack


On the big scary Conservative attack ad (in response to the horrible mean Liberal attack ad) (in response to…oh never mind)

Now that I’ve slept on it, the most interesting question about the Conservative “Just Visiting” ad (posted somewhere down below) is this: is a single, scattershot, web ad, leaked to Stephen Taylor’s blog, the extent of the Conservatives’ campaign against Michael Ignatieff? When they went against Dion, they went quick and very hard, with large-scale long-term ad buys in many markets and across media platforms (radio, TV, net). It was shock and awe on a scale Canadian pre-writ campaigning has rarely seen. And Dion wasn’t even ahead of the Conservatives in the polls. Ignatieff is. Has been for more than a month now. And the Conservatives take out a pea-shooter?
