Michael Ignatieff has new ads out. Let’s do some math.

FROM THE AD

Hi, I’m Michael Ignatieff. Wherever I have worked, I have met Canadians that are the best the world has to offer.

plus

FACT: Michael Ignatieff worked outside of Canada for 34 straight years.

equals

Michael Ignatieff thinks the best Canadians that the world has to offer live outside of Canada.

What does that make those of us who live in Canada? Chopped Liver?

    If we domestic Canadians could just drag ourselves away from our “beer and popcorn” once in a while we just might amount to something one day.

    I feel bad that I’m disappointing Michael Ignatieff. After all, I’m just a boring, stay-at-home Canadian. I can’t afford to travel all around the world.

    In Michael’s world, I guess I’m second best.

    I also looks like Michael Ignatief didn’t even risk having to contact a mosqueto when making his “Nice Guy Michael Getting To know You In Your Local Woods” pep-talk video to Canadians, since he never had to venture outside the studio to deliver his script.

    The anointed Liberal leader framed against the glorious Canadian wilderness background is about as real as a weatherman standing in front of a weather map.

    Check out the Fake Iggy-Prop video to judge for yourself.

    I can’t wait for the exact same Ignatieff ‘getting to know you Canadians’ monologue in front of a Niagara Falls, Bay of Fundy, Quebec City, CN Tower, majestic Rockies or even Space Station with CanadArm studio backdrop.

    What a pathetically disingenuous attempt to portray Ignatieff as an average Canadian enjoying the natural green setting of …a studio.

    It might be interesting to know if Iggy ever made the effort to pay child support to his first abandoned wife and their children.
    Who paid for their education?

    Can’t compare this man to Harper when it comes to being a family man. On any level.
