The provincial election campaign started badly for NDP leader Howard Hampton, but now it’s degenerating into a debacle. Yesterday he raged at the media: “Don’t any of you people care?”
Adam Radwanski came close to predicting this development yesterday morning, on his daily “report card”:
After three futile campaigns, you kind of have the sense that the NDP Leader is at the end of his rope.
Today Radwanski adds,
At the end of what has to be [Hampton’s] final campaign, he’s run out of patience. I have some sympathy for him — you’d have to be pretty cold not to — but it’s an unfortunate way to go out.
Ouch. No one wants to be an object of pity.
