"Dion Laughs In The Face Of Crisis"
Yesterday, Mr. Dion sounded like the ludicrously optimistic Liberal leadership candidate from last summer who did not appear to be well-informed enough about his own chances to be pessimistic...
Perhaps the reason Mr. Dion is able to keep his head, when all about him are losing theirs, is because he hasn't grasped the dire nature of his predicament.
Ivison questions Dion, for holding a press conference and offering an upbeat demeanor, as though this stance is curious. Apparently, Dion would score points with Ivison if he took to the mic and said, "We're a mess, the PM has us by the throat, I don't know why we bother, we're finished". "Dion Crumbles, Retreats Into Cocoon In Face of Crisis"- that's the better headline.
Dion was actually quite candid yesterday, and acknowledged some difficulties. However, it seems to me that every politician, at every turn, attempts to put a positive spin on every circumstance. Dion is unique in this regard? What exactly does Ivison expect and why does optimism necessarily convert to naivety? Dion's job, like all the other leaders, is to put on a brave face, hardly unique or noteworthy. What a moronic critique when you think about it.
