Baby objects - loudly - to NDP message
Well, it's finally happened. A baby has turned on a politician.
In Surrey, B.C., little Shasta was teething, and there would be no kissing.
Jack Layton probably didn't even see Shasta, but he definitely, absolutely, heard her.
Shashta didn't care about Layton's message.
Wasn't interested in that stump speech.
She let it rip: loud piercing screams that would drown out the most capable of politicians, that overpowered the microphone, that made it hard for reporters to hear.
Layton may have heard her, but he just kept going.
There are some things that campaign strategists just can't predict.
