Libs get a taste of negative coverage

I am writing in reply to the dozen articles I have read regarding troubles within the Liberal Party. Finally, the left-leaning media have decided to do what many unsuspecting Canadians have thought they were doing all along; cover the news in an unpartisan manner. After a plethora of attacks on a young Canadian Alliance party, ranging from unfair and unjustified policy attacks to taking aim at insignificant gaffes, it is time for the Liberals to have their turn in the political spotlight. And how sweet it is. Petty Liberal infighting and gross incompetence, on behalf of our arrogant government, are dominating the Canadian political landscape. Poetic justice is unfolding before our eyes and Liberal fallacies are becoming clearer with each passing day. Indeed, it is a great time to be Canadian.
