Ignatieff Ignorance, Pt. 2: Context Message

Last Friday, when excerpts from Michael Ignatieff’s Blood & Belonging were posted, Torontoist thought it to be rather old news. Instead, it cause a minor comment fury from Liberal supporters, and included this harrassing email:

Quoting Danielle :
> What kind of an idiot are you? Did you not take the time to read the whole
iggy1.jpg> chapter, much less the book. You should be embarrassed. In choosing this
> completely out of context quote from the book you look absolutely and
> utterly stupid. Can you read?

The post was more or less a vehicle in which to make fun of On the Fence and Torontoist blogger J Kelly, and contained little or no opinion on the matter. This ultimately lead to the following questions:
1. Do party campaigners and Liberal supporters (like Danielle) have to filter their opinions/rage through the candidate’s office?
2. Did Danielle need to use a question mark in the second sentence of this rant?
3. Was J Kelly right about an Ignatieff cover-up, which attempted to even silence an opinion-less Torontoist?
4. Tories are seizing the day, writing up Iggy’s looser lips with the Daily Ignatieff (Although Libs did it first with StephenHarperSaid). Should Tories also watch these unruly Ignatieff-supporting thugs?
5. Finally, why is Neil Diamond’s “Sweet Caroline” becoming the theme song to the Tories campaign? Unrelated, we know.
