Beating up on a carbon tax

Stéphane Dion’s inept failure to define what he means by a “carbon tax,” which I’ve decried at some length, left the barn door wide open for this, which is almost self-parodying in its refusal to engage with the actual issue at hand.

The “You think it’s easy to load websites?” line while some of the elaborate Flash stuff downloads is pretty good, admittedly.

It’s probably going to work, at least for the purposes of killing the carbon-tax idea. As far as winning the Tories a majority government is concerned, I think it’s most likely to reinforce the idea that the Conservatives are temperamentally kind of assholes, and never more so than when they’re in a position of strength.
