Challenge for MacNutt (round 2)

Last election, I challenged MacNutt to do something: tell us why we should vote Conservative without trashing the liberals. Someone else jumped the gun, though, and ruined it (and when MacNutt responded, he still trashed the liberals).

So here is the challenge again. MacNutt, you are hereby challenged to tell us all why we should vote Conservative, without mentioning the Liberals or any other party.

To re-iterate, I want to hear why we should vote for your party, not why not to vote for anyone else.

Everyone else, please, let MacNutt field the challenge.

Is there a prize for answering the challenge? Yes! Some of us will stop thinking of you as so much of a blow hard. I'll say "good job, you've given me something to think about." And last, but not least, it'll give us a chance to debate the Conservative platform as an alternative, rather than just hear more "LIBERALS CORRUPT" screaming from the right hand side of the room.

So, have at 'er.

Well PosterBoy, I'm very sorry for "ruining it" last time by articulating as best I could my reasons for supporting the Conservatives in the last election. It seems to me you're not actually looking for a discussion of the issues but instead you just want a chance to needle MacNutt. If so, why not do it privately and rejoin us here when you'd like an actual discussion?

No matter what argument is presented, it can all be undone by one simple word: Harper.

No, I just like to give MacNutt the chance to prove he's not a blowhard.

I have nothing against you for being able to cogently articulate your reasons for voting Conservative, and "ruining" may be too harsh way to articulate what I meant, but last time I asked the guy who constantly says "Liberals Bad!" to tell me why the Conservatives are good and you jumped in.

One man's "needling" is another man's "asking him to pony up."

You're right in that I'm not specifically looking to discuss issues, rather I am looking for MacNutt to discuss them.

I think there are some people getting a little too high on themselves. Let MacNutt defend himself. PB has done nothing wrong... he's thrown down the gauntlet.

Get over it, and yourselves kids. Let Macnutt deal with it.

That would seem to be the best idea, but to each their own I guess.
While we're waiting for MacNutt, anybody want to have a group sing-a-long?
