Stick a fork in ‘em

I came across a funny editorial in today’s Edmonton SUN newspaper. It pokes fun at the Liberal Party’s latest campaign disaster–a television commercial that attacks Stephen Harper on military issues. Here is an excerpt:

Hey, did you know that there are soldiers in Canadian cities? Soldiers. With guns. In our cities. In Canada. You did? Then you’re one up on the Liberal Party of Canada, which apparently had one of the biggest brain cramps in political history when it came up with the now utterly vilified and also roundly mocked attack ad on Stephen Harper this week.

There are a number of blogs that have taken this short-lived attack ad and made parodies of it. I got a kick out of this one that appears on damianpenny.com:

Stephen Harper ate at a Tex-Mex place once.
You know what the “Tex” in Tex-Mex stands for?
Texas.
George W. Bush’s home state.
And you know who else would have liked Tex-Mex food if he were alive today?
Adolf Hitler.
We’re not making this up.
Choose your Canada.

It looks like Paul Martin just lost a lot of votes from anyone serving in the military. Canadian Press is reporting that the latest Liberal ad has angered Canadian soldiers.
