Here is someone's pathetic attempt at wit and humor, know as Kyoto's Dog Blog:

On days like today, I wish we were in France!
Spent the morning lying on the couch in Stéphane’s office listening to him pleading with Liberal Senators to pass the Government’s term limits. He said the Tory ads were making him look weak and powerless. Again. "Eight years and out? No way!" they said. He moped around all day muttering about how unfair life is.
Yesterday I was taking the master for a walk when I spotted the Prime Minister’s cat strutting down Sussex like she owned the place. Can you imagine? She’s not even purebred. I gave chase, dragging Stéphane down the street. He kept shouting "No Kyoto! Stop it!" Madame Elizabeth May happened by and almost had a coronary. She thought he was talking about the Accord.
Ignatieff came by the other day. He grimaced at me and told Stéphane he preferred big bald eagles to dogs. When I barked in protest he lectured me about the appropriateness of torture in "certain" situations. So I showed him my fangs. "Yikes," he said, "when are you going to get this dog trained?" Stéphane barked back: "You don't know what you speak about!" and asked Ignatieff: "Do you think it’s easy to make priorities?"
Tonight Stéphane tried to get me to listen to that stupid joke he told on TV last year about the world’s shortest bedtime story. "You know Bam the dog?" he said. "The car goes by, and bam, the dog. Now go to sleep." Then he laughs, like it’s funny. Gives me nightmares. I whined and cowered until he apologized. It’s a trick I learned from him. Now that’s funny.
Time for bed. I'll dream about France. Stéphane tells me we will move back one day but I've heard him flip flop too many times before so I'll just keep dreaming for now.
What funnybone challenged genius penned this turd? If this low brow, gradeschool junk actually resonates with Canadians then all is lost.
How should the Liberals react? Normally, the preferred route is just to ignore. However, the ad and website are so bad, and actually reveal so much more about the Tories preference on political discourse, that Liberals should talk up these latest round of attacks. Ask Canadians to visit the website and decide if this humorless tripe makes them proud? Is this the sort of behavior they endorse, because afterall their reaction will ultimately decide if this tactic becomes commonplace. Challenge people, embrace the ads, they don't do the Tories any favors, beyond hardcore partisans.
