Conservatives Open Fire on Ignatieff

Harper wants his government to fall, I don't see any other way to look at it. Earlier today the Liberals made Iggy interim leader. Immediately after that progressives groaned. A little later in the afternoon pundits began speculating about the Conservatives and the Liberals building bridges, finding compromise and working out a way to avoid the government falling. Tonight the Conservatives opened fire
The Conservatives issued a fundraising letter on Wednesday painting interim Liberal Leader Michael Ignatieff as a parachute leader who wasn't rightfully elected by Canadians or his own party members.

"St├ęphane Dion has resigned as leader of the Liberal Party of Canada, and by extension, of the Liberal/NDP/Bloc Coalition," Tory campaign chair Doug Finley writes.

"In yet another stunning and unprecedented demonstration of Liberal contempt for our democratic rights, they've decided to appoint a new leader in place."

The fundraising letter then implores party supporters to donate $200 or $100 to "help us spread this message to Canadians."

Perhaps Harper, like me, doesn't see how he can create a budget that the Liberals can vote for (or abbstain from voting on) and so they are continuing on in war mode.
