Fauxbama

The things you never think you'll see on a given morning...a fun new word for the Canadian political lexicon:
"If there is one lesson of the Obama experience," Mr. Rossi said, "it is that people want to be part of politics that matters. ... Mr. Harper tried to tap into that stream a bit during Mr. Obama's recent visit to Ottawa.

"If Mr. Harper reverts to spending millions of taxpayer-subsidized dollars on attack ads in the middle of an economic crisis, he will prove himself to be Fauxbama and Canadians will punish him for it."
The Liberals are doing a good job of making it quite difficult for attack ads to be launched. Branding Stephen Harper as the penultimate negative politician in the shadow of the Obama hope machine. That is a killer word...:)
