Sing it, Danny

He's truth-telling again. On yesterday's Harper photo-oppery with young Graham of N.B. where he doled out millions to N.B. and applauded Graham for "working co-operatively" with the federal government:
"I don't think that's the way a prime minister should operate," he said in St. John's. "If he thinks he's punishing us by giving funds to New Brunswick, I'm not going to play that game. The childishness doesn't become a prime minister."

Williams said he wouldn't trust Harper "as far as I could throw him."

"That's the only advice I can give to New Brunswickers or anybody else," he said. "It's pitting one province against another, that's exactly what his game is. The Atlantic provinces haven't been well served by that kind of approach."
And a N.B. official quietly provided evidence suggesting Danny is right on the money about Harper's game:
A New Brunswick government source who asked not to be named said the event was being used as an opportunity for the prime minister to be seen as getting along with a premier from Atlantic Canada.
How many times do I have to tell the PMO...don't mess with Danny Millions...:) This has got to be one of the best feuds in Canadian politics in eons...:)
