Second Thots

Sometimes one has to step back, take pause, and have some "second thots"

Stéphane Dion decides to wear Adscam

Why in the world would Stéphane Dion start apologizing for Liberals implicated in the Adscam scandal?

I can think of a few reasons:

a) Dion is still too weak a leader and is incapable of exercising his own will over forces within his own party.

b) His own party is beyond any hope of a quick fix any time soon.

c) Dion is incredibly tone deaf and lacks any semblance of judgement as a political leader.

Read this excerpt about one of the men Dion seems bound to bring back into the fold:

During the Gomery inquiry into the scandal, Mr. Côté testified that he received $120,000 in $100 bills from the executive director of the party's Quebec wing. He distributed that money to 12 Liberal candidates in the 1997 federal election.
Stéphane Dion just handed Stephen Harper a priceless gift. He is attaching himself to the corruption and scandals of the past. I hope I don't come across too harsh when I ask this, but really, how dumb do you have to be?
