The Changing Game of Political Attacks

The Tories are masters of voter suppression - er, supporting the disengagement of opposition supporters.  They love their attack ads.  They believe politics is a bare-knuckle fight where whatever you can get away with goes.  As a result, they believe everyone else is playing the same game they are.  As such and with a growing burden of scandals of their own, Harper's Tories are doing the only thing they know how - digging up potential dirt on opponents and attempting to bait and switch.
See, their way of playing the game isn't the only way of playing the game - in fact, I'd argue their approach is rather short-sighted.
We'll see how committed the CPC are to their current approach - after all, that which adapts, survives.
