Radwonky Piles on the Count

My heart is increasingly going out to my esteemed colleague across the floor, Count Ignatula the Public Intellectual, as he braves a growing stream of criticism from crazed journos like Adam Radwonky, who recently opined,

Dion’s problem was that he had a vision; he just couldn’t find the right words to sell it. Ignatieff has managed to flip things around; time after time, he articulately ties himself into knots trying to get around the fact that he has very little to say.

Come on people, this is not fair. He's got a job to do, and has several years to learn how to do it, so let's cut him some slack.

And let's squelch all this crazy talk about going to the polls. Jack and Gilles don't want an election, because they will lose votes (er, and money - Ed?), and who wants to do that?

So we're stuck with the Count, until the Justin Child grows up and can take his rightful place as the Obama of Canada.
