I'm putting too much thought into this
George Smitherman was a fantastic pit-bull for McGuinty in 2003. Scott Brison's skill at berating the Conservatives in the House while answering their questions was just epic. Pre-Lord of the Rings Svend Robinson... need I say more? Now it seems as if John Baird is the Conservative point-man on all things anti-Dion, and the leading anti-Dion separatist voice thus far has been Andre Boisclair.
Is there some reason why gay men make such good political attack dogs? I think it's because we possess the aggressiveness of men and the vindictiveness of women.
