Iggy makes a funny

This is possibly the best election ad of the campaign so far. The Twitterverse appears to be in love with it for its hipster humour and the speed with which the Grits got it made. I especially like the amalgamation of old-school Frankenstein-style grunting with Terminator-style cyborg face recognition software.

If indeed the Conservatives are Facebook creepin' on folks who sign up for their rallies (which is still a confusing question. Witness this scrum with the top Tory media spokesman), there are a few Winnipeg Tories who might find themselves on the banned list.

How about Winnipeg South Centre candidate Joyce Bateman? Back in the day, when she was still a Liberal, Bateman appeared in a couple of campaign brochures for fellow-Liberals, including Paul Hesse, before she decided to run for the Tories. Until recently, there was a picture of her and former Liberal cabinet minister Lloyd Axworthy on her campaign website. Is that enough to raise red flags among Harper's tour organisers?
