The Liberal ad the Conservatives are afraid of



The ruthless Conservative attack artists who don't know when to stop are at it tonight, attacking Ignatieff's father via reporters on Twitter and via heavily and questionably researched talking points on Ignatieff's family history. My, the frat boys put a lot of effort into such very worthwhile endeavours.

Excellent ad which will now get more attention thanks to these Conservative efforts.

Update: From the Citizenship and Immigration Canada site, there's an account of George Ignatieff's history: "...one of Canada’s most celebrated diplomats and a man devoted to the cause of peace, was among the comparatively small number of Russian newcomers who landed on Canadian shores in the 1920s." You can read on from there. Needless to say, it totally undermines the Conservative attack tonight. (h/t)
