“I don’t where you stand on any one position Bob. My comments got skewed. Harper’s recognised me as a threat so he’s coming after me. Big deal. I’m not going to lose sleep over that either.”

“You can spout off if you want but your comments are affecting the whole party. He’s not just gunning for you; he’s after all of us now. And for the record, I’m sitting, not standing Michael.”

“If I can interject with an observation, I’d like to point out that I’m still in this race. At least Canadians know who I am.”

“Come off it Ken, when you talk like that you sound like a lawyer. No-one likes lawyers. If you have anything interesting to say, you should be making hockey analogies. Something the meat and potato Canadian can identify with.”

“Well, I’m still staying in the race.”

“I want to object. I don’t see why I have to sit across from Ignatieff. Your antics are as bad as Harper’s.”

“Joe face it. You’re out.”

“Am not.”

“Am too.”


“You just don’t like me because I’m Italian. Admit it!”


“Gentlemen. Listen to me!”

“Neither are you Stephane.”

“Who here is anti-Israeli?”
