On Optics and Body Language

If you haven't checked out the new spread on the Liberal Party site, I suggest you do. Okay, so you're heading out for an all important tour of the country, with the primary goal of reinvigorating the Liberal brand, bringing excitement and traction. With that in mind, one has to wonder who exactly thought it a good idea to advertise Ignatieff's trip with a sidebar photo of an visibly irritated man, who looks like he'd rather be eating a bag of rusty nails, than listening to Ignatieff. What splendid optics, which leaves me wondering if there was an internal competition to find the LEAST attractive imagery imaginable. I suppose the kicker, the rest of the crowd looks like they are waiting for a colonoscopy.

Just oozes exciting and compelling, something you want to attend, doesn't it? All aboard!

LOLz. I keep wonderin' how it could possibly get worse... and then it does. Gotta laugh, else I'd cry.

Reminds me of the time I was checking a hotel website in Toronto and they had set it up so that comments from hotel patrons were scrolling down their front page -- and the top comment that day was a complaint about bedbugs in the hotel! Needless to say, we did NOT book at that hotel. I wonder how long it took them to realize that they had to do something about that comment? Sounds like at least the Liberals are reading your blog.

Don't say they don't listen to the grassroots.

And that's quite a bit like what you look like waiting for a colonoscopy. Maybe a bit more smile-y, because of the anaesthetic.

Must gave been the crowd in the senate waiting for democracy that never came.
