Huffin' and puffin on the campaign trail

The case of the disappearing puffin and Stephen Harper's gritted-teeth apology for the incontinent bird has overwhelmed the media today.

Am I the only one who scratched his head when this story first broke, having quite forgotten that Stéphane Dion's rival George Michael Ignatieff had once extolled the fastidious nature of the bird in question? What would the general public have made of this hastily-withdrawn TV clip?

This campaign is going to be about
substance, dammit. No, no, not that one. Well, maybe that one.
