Overshadowed by the fooferaw caused by a pooping puffin last week was another part of the Conservatives' notaleader.ca Dion attack site. Called Dionbook, it claimed to be "A satirical look at the Liberal Party, Ottawa and Federal politics." And it went suspiciously missing late last week in the wake of Puffingate, as several bloggers and newspapers noted.
In addition to including parodies of Liberal bloggers among Dion's "supporters," the site listed "Let's bring the Taliban to Canada" and "I eat my hot dog with a knife and fork" among Dion's subscribed "groups." (See a jpeg of Google's last cached version of the site at right, minus the images, which were not captured by the cache - and click for a larger image.)
Hard to tell exactly which of the above attempts at humour was enough to cause second thoughts among the overseers of the Conservative war room. And if you're puzzling over the hot dog reference, mabye there's a clue in this interesting bit of Quebec election ephemera from a note on the CBC Digital Archives Facebook page, explaining why you won't see Quebec politicians eating hot dogs on the campaign trail.
