Just when you thought the Liberal election campaign couldn’t get nastier, it does.

I thought they’d hit bottom with Liberal leader Kathleen Wynne’s photo-op in Walkerton last week and her assertion that, “cuts have consequences.”

The conclusion we’re supposed to draw is that Tim Hudak and the PCs will slash and burn and children will die.

It’s a revolting way to run a campaign. But it works, so why not?

It shows how desperate the Liberals are.

Another sign was a tweet sent out by a Liberal backroom type Monday that included a link to a story I wrote more than a year ago, quoting Hudak musing about Doug Ford running for the PCs.

I replied, saying when you tweet year-old stories, it might be an idea to put them in context.
