I love it when Liberals prove that what we are saying about them, and their lifeless, listless leader is hitting the mark.
A few days ago, the Toronto Star wrote a very strange article that nobody paid attention to because everyone was still pinching themselves after the Ford victory. It was, by all appearances, an attempt to show that Dalton is still just a regular guy by showing him raking leaves in front of a house that he doesn't actually live in anymore.
Liberal propaganda from the Star is nothing new. And, every politician likes to show that he or she is just a regular person, just like you, no matter how ridiculous that seems.
But it wasn't until today that I remembered another attempt by the Liberals to humanize their reptilian leader. It was called dalton.ca, and it doesn't exist anymore because it failed spectacularly. There is evidence that it did exist at one point, however.
dalton.ca was, by all accounts, a pretty neat website. I vaguely remember pictures of Dalton smiling awkwardly in that forced manner of his with his wife and family. We'll never know how much dalton.ca cost. (In that respect it did resemble Dalton quite well.) You don't remember dalton.ca because the Liberals spent the 2007 election talking about faith based schools instead of dalton.ca. Trying to demonize John Tory proved a much more effective strategy than trying to humanize Dalton.
When more people buy the idea of John Tory as a villain than the idea of Dalton as someone you'd eat a burger with, you have a problem. It's all very reminiscent of attempts at the federal level to humanize another faltering Liberal leader.
A clown sees life simply, without complications, so I ask: Why the constant attempts to make people believe that Dalton is what he really isn't? Ontarians can see that Dalton is a stiff, wooden puppet of the elites that currently control this province.
