Next to Alf Apps, Senator Smith is the king of stupid things said on the campaign trail.
Senator Smith still likes to dream of believing he was the mastermind behind Chretien winning 96 out of 97 seats in Ontario back in 1993. He wasn't. But that's an argument for another day.
Last election Smith went on CTV with Craig Oliver the last weekend before the vote and Craig asked what Stephane Dion's chances were. Smith's answer? "When you wish upon a star". Today, when asked by Craig what Michael Ignatieff's chances are, Smith, in his infinite wisdom, chimed "Hope springs eternal". Wow. What a ringing endorsement for his hand chosen leader.
While I'm on a roll here - the new Liberal ad against the NDP sucks. And who decided to send MI to that hockey game in Mississauga? WTF! Talk about a party that looks like they're panicking. Get a grip people! Suck it up and stick to the original message.
