Dion in Tears

Stéphane Dion just called me on BlackBerry #4 and he sounded close to tears. "Thanks for all your support dearest Fake Steve," he said. "You're one of the fewer Commons people who know what a rough time I'm had. You always respectful and décent guy, unlike some of my party people."

And then he burst out, "I used to think you Conservateurs had a hidden US-style agenda. Now it turns out Michael Ignatyef, a US-style intellectual, thinks he can just snap the fingers and I will hand him Liberal leadership reins. Jamais!" Then he stifled a sob and the phone went dead.

Now WTH am I to make of all this? Who would have thought Iggy the House Elf would behave so badly? They never should have given him that sock.
