Just the man you need in your corner when accused of shady politics:
Embattled Liberal leadership candidate Joe Volpe is the victim of anti-Italian sentiment, says former public works minister Alfonso Gagliano, who blames the same ethnic prejudice for his own fall from grace.More humble men have been able to accept Lord Acton's warning "power corrupts, and absolute power corrupts absolutely."
But go ahead, say it Alfonso: Mafia.
People seem to think guys like you are messed up with the mafia. That's why when you pass around envelopes stuffed with loot for the Party suddenly people get these ideas. But that's just because you're Italian and they're bigots. Now poor old Joe was just trying to get everybody out to vote. I thought it was awfully nice of his campaign to pay for those memberships. I bet if he wasn't Italian no one would have bat an eye.
Gee wiz, I forgot about the Russian mafia!
The chaotic show was replete with ghostly spectres hovering in the wings.
In this September 6th photo Ignatieff addressess his undead supporters (note hand gestures), simultaneously with an ethnically diverse living crowd at the Ontario Heritage Centre, promising an all inclusive Canada where the dead may no longer feel marginalized.
Rumour has it that Hedy Fry decided to throw her support behind Bob Rae when he told her he will announce new programs to extend to, not only the undead, but imaginary friends as well.
