The (evil) magic of attack ads
Attacks ads are negative, anti-democratic. But they work. Michael Ignatieff’s struggling campaign is a case in point.
The Liberal supremo is struggling to connect with Canadians, but the Conservative ads targeting him seem to be resonating with Canadians. Today I counted more than ten people in downtown Toronto who recited the Conservative attack ads words “he didn’t come back for you”.
The worst of American-style negative ad campaigning is upon us.
