Political ad watch: NDP "chalk talk" with Jack Layton

Chalk Talk: Health Care

Chalk Talk: Economy

I really dislike this advert. Jack Layton is going to spend that money on training me for jobs? Who does he think he is, my mother? And calling it "Canadian $" is ridiculous--particular people make that money, they pay taxes to the government, and that's how the government gets it. It's not like it starts out as Canadian money that Jack Layton picks from a tree. Disaster:

Chalk Talk: Leadership

I wonder if Taliban Jack knows that the point of an election campaign is to both retain your existing voting base AND win over undecideds. Being an Ontarian, I figure he knows he doesn't have to. Ontarians are a lazy, bigoted people.

I saw the last one on tv on one of the rare occasions that I watch broadcast tv.
I thought the commercial was pretty silly and Layton showed a lot of hubris by having his miling mug next to the cartoons.
I think they made an error putting a cartoon Jack next to the non-cartoon Jack. I always figured that Layton was a looney toon.
The cartoon Jack seemed less conceited and might split votes from the non-cartoon Jack.

Jack Layton's a horse's ass.

"Canadian money" IS ridiculous because that money's MY money, MY hard-earned dollars, which Jack wants to take from me--a hardworking, honest, fiscally responsible, sacrificial mom in a "Canadian family"--to fund social(ist) engineering projects, which means huge handouts to special interest groups the NDP have earmarked to take Canada into a Brave New World, which would be a disaster.

He'd happily dole MY money out to feminists who dislike men and, for the most part, don't have kids--or, if they do, don't have husbands--gays whose agenda jackboots the non-gay ROC and our freedom of religion and freedom of expression rights, unions who take the workers' hard-earned dollars whether the workers support the union agenda or not, etc., etc. ad nauseum.

Layton's a smarmy Botox Brain, his smile's pasted on--you sure can't see it in his eyes. He'll never be in a position to lead or govern this country, which empowers him to peddle his warm-fuzzy-zany ideas even knowing, deep down, that they're unworkable.

He's a gnat to Stephen Harper, a Prime Ministerial leader who's a grown up living in the real world. Jacko's a Peter Pan who takes up far too much HOC and MSM time...and I wish he'd just buzz off.
