Did The PM Get A Dig In At Ignatieff With His Performance?

The blogosphere and msm is abuzz talking about the PM's wonderful performance at the National Arts Centre, where he performed the Beatles tune "Help From My Friends".

Thinking about it, the PM knowingly or unknowingly actually managed to get quite the dig in at Iffy. Think about the lyrics. "I get by with a little help from my friends". At the same time Iffy is dodging questions from Denis Codderre's resignation as Quebec Lieutenant and the Quebec wing of the Liberal party throwing Iffy under the bus. We haven't seen a break-up of this significance since that whole Paris Hilton/Nicole Ritchie spat.

p.s. Be sure to see my previous post, to see previous Liberal and NDP attempts at similar performances!

It's funny, I thought the same thing but I really think the song was chosen, because of the nature of the gala, a FUNDRAISER.

If it caused Canadians to speculate, and the PM gave us plenty of reason to with those great voice inflections and facial expressions, that's even better.
Keep it coming!

I knew he could play the piano Bec, but had no idea he could sing that well. And it's not an easy song to sing.

I know, that was the gift that keeps on giving, paulsstuff.

Sammy (1:03) over at BLY references Iffy, during the media scrum;
"reporter asks him what he thot of PMSH’s singing.Iggy lolls his head around,sings,’what would you do if I sang out of tune’…smirks,then “he’s been out of tune for 4 yrs” NO ONE fell flat,and he looks stupid."

Now that is a doorknob political moment, huh?
