So much for dignified debate
Every election, we hope for dignified debate over policy. But eventually, the whole thing grinds down into petty partisanship. It only took until the third day, but we're there. The Conservative website briefly had a puffin pooping on Stephane Dion. Apparently, it was the work of an overzealous Conservative staffer and was quickly removed from the site. However, it should be noted that this is not the first time the Conservative website has come under criticism for being somewhat childish. The Conservatives (and their forerunners) spent so much time in opposition, it's tough to shake off those habits. But this kind of thing hardly contributes to the Prime Ministerial tone Stephen Harper is trying to set in this election.
