Layton's bizarre presser today (could have done without the juvenile subtitles in this video), which actually brought the gallery to laughter:
I'm not sure why the NDP brain trust put Layton out today. I'd put this decision in the "medium gaffe" binder. Layton parroted the usual hollow lines, offered reforms which the Liberals adopted months ago, and basically did jack(pun intended) to help the NDP position.
This post sums it all up very nicely.
