The most "Liberal Budget ever"?

John Ibbitson over at the globe and mail adds insult to injury with his comments on the budget

How Liberal is this allegedly Conservative budget? It's so Liberal that it actually revives the sponsorship program.

There was a time when some of us thought Stephen Harper and Jim Flaherty were conservatives: prudent politicians who were definably to the right of, say, Jack Layton or St├ęphane Dion. What fools we were.

The only losers -- apart from the opposition parties, which are left slack-jawed, with nothing meaningful to oppose (although that won't stop them) -- will be those few remaining citizens who would actually like to vote for a conservative party. No such creature exists any more.
and finally (and funnily)

This is so Liberal, the Grits should sue for breach for copyright.
I (like most dippers) have always said "Liberal, Tory, Same old Story" but who knew just how true that was?
