Anyway, as I've noted before, I'm on Ignatieff's email list and today came this sickly sweet missive, supposedly from Iggy's wife (though I'd guess few Liberals in the leader's office would have scruples about using her in such a way):
Dear Liberal Friend,
While we look forward to spring, Valentine’s Day is almost here to help us fend off winter’s chill. If you are still looking for the right gift for your Valentine, I have a cozy red suggestion:
Make a donation of $100 or more by midnight on Saturday, February 14th, and you will receive a limited-edition red fleece scarf, embroidered with the name of my favourite Liberal Valentine, to help keep you or a loved one warm until spring arrives.
Winter may be with us a while yet. Let’s weather it together.
Warm regards and hope to see you in Vancouver,
Note: the market value of the gift item will be deducted from the receiptable amount of your donation.
