Canada Debates! (and feelings are hurt)

Canadian Election Update: Week Three

This week the Canadian federal election campaign switched into high gear. The leaders of weach of the four major parties took part in two televised debates: one in English and one in French. The debates gave voters a chance to hear the leaders free of scripted commericals and negative ads, while showcasing their "grace under pressure" or lack there of.

Of course, such an environment also provides for many surprising comments when the leaders dare to stray from their message. Dogs & Jeans Crack Political Consultants were lucky enough to be on hand to capture some of the more shocking to share with you:

Jack Layton turns on former ally, Liberal leader Michael Ignatieff declaring that many of the Liberal candidates are "crazier than Charlie Sheen!" Ignatieff, a well known academic and stuffy intellectual replies: "I don't know who that is. Is Sheen the Norwegian Proust scholar who resists Cartesian reductionism?"

Stephen Harper's comment after being criticized for not supporting The Arts: "I pledge to restore Pia Toscano to the Final 7 of American Idol. If not, she will be declared the sole winner of Canadian Idol 2011 even though such a show does not currently exist."

During the French debate, Conservative leader Stephen Harper likens the politics of Quebec to those in Ivory Coast. Gilles Duceppe’s response was : "Um, pardonne?" The other leaders, clearly uncomfortable with comparison (which was obviously in poor taste), shift slightly away from Harper. Liberal leader Ignatieff even tries to move his podium away, but pulls a muscle in his back.

Michael Ignatieff loses his temper after Bloq Quebecois leader Gilles Duceppe accuses him of pandering to immigrants for votes in Montreal: "Your claim has as much truth as the recent

Jack Layton sums up the Conservative campaign: "Mr. Harper is like a Dorito Taco shell. His shell is brittle and cracks under s pressure, after you touch him, you can't wash off the radioactive orange dye and he's full of stuff that gives you gas and diarrhoea."

I think the politicians should be on Canadian Idol. As good a judgement as anything.

Shana: Good idea. Harper plays a mean guiter adn I understand Duceppe sings sweeter than Celine Dion.
