Iffy's Magical Bus Tour

Mr. Iffy is about to embark on his magical bus tour to change his image in hopes that it will boost his and his party's fortunes. 

Get ready for Iggy unplugged. The bus tour to beat all bus tours. Or what one of Michael Ignatieff’s strategists is calling – we’re not kidding – “the biggest summer undertaking of any opposition leader ever!”
Starting next week, the Opposition Leader, tanking in the polls, will climb aboard the Liberal Express (as it’s being called) for a summer-long national tour featuring seven or eight events a day: town halls, round tables, barbecues, interviews, picnics, carnivals – everything, in fact, except trampoline acts.
This should be good.   Can't wait for all the gaffes.  Seeing how the latest numbers for the Iffy Liberals are real bad,  I don't see that this getting down and dirty with us "the Canadian people" is going to help him much.  He's a flip flopper and a gaffe machine much like US VP Joe Biden.  It will provide us conservative bloggers a treasure trove of stuff to post about though.  I got a feeling that by time this magical bus tour is over, instead of riding inside the bus, Iffy will be thrown under the bus. At least the party brass will feel like it.

Meanwhile, here are some tips from Patricia Dawn Robertson, Globe and Mail.  that she has for laying out the welcome mat for the visiting professor.  Hey,how about laying out that welcome mat when Iffy's bus pulls into a community near you.  Cheers!


  1. How many 'cross country tours' has Iffy gone on since tossing Dion under the magic bus....

    Jan 2009 economic listening tour
    Jan 2010 university speaking tour

  3. I say bring on more Iffy tours! It seems the more he speaks the lower the Lib polling numbers go.

    People just don't like what he's selling.

  4. Well now, you have that yummy apple pie. I am sure that you could use a pie to welcome Figby. So many ways .....

    Here in Vancouver, I would love to take him up the Grouse grind, sun bathing at Wreck Beach, a raving lecture by an environmental activist professor, a lane cleaning event in the lower east side (lots of votes there), a BC bud party in Abbotsford and then to a dude ranch in the interior, where he would go on a (hehe) trail ride. That would give him a good cross-section of life of which Premier Campbell would not approve.

  5. The media is the Liberal 'ONLY' saving grace and no one else. So, whereever Ignatieff or any other travel too is well protected by the media. Ignatieff knows this and expects to recieve the same treatment as his fellow colleagues get regularly from the media.

    Since the liberals have no policy of their own-he plans to reinstitue as his own- the plans aleady accomplished and said by the PMSH.


This is my home. I hope you respect it. I will not tolerate profanity or anything that is not suitable for family consumption.
