Conservative Oral Fixation Resurfaces

First a brief explanation of how Freud describes Oral Fixation: Oral fixation has two possible outcomes.
The Oral receptive personality is preoccupied with eating/drinking and reduces tension through oral activity such as eating, drinking, smoking, biting nails. They are generally passive, needy and sensitive to rejection. They will easily 'swallow' other people's ideas.
The Oral aggressive personality is hostile and verbally abusive to others, using mouth-based aggression. Wow that pretty much sums up the Conservative party and their supporters on a whole.

The last time the Tory Oral Fixation surfaced was in during the 1993 election campaign where the Campbell campaign released an attack ad against Jean Chretien, which showed a very unflattering picture of Jean Chretien, particularly focusing on his mouth, and we know how well that turned out for the Tories.
While watching the new Conservative ad, all I could think of was, wtf is this a really bad Conan O'Brien sketch. They even fudged the format, see Conan would had a picture of Layton, and the mouth would have moved, saying something, anything. What's next, are Conservatives gonna sick Triumph, The Insult Comic Dog, on campaigning NDP candidates nation wide.... Wait scrap that, that might be funny.
So stand up my mustachio wearing friends. Cast your vote for a leader and party who not only realizes how difficult it is to have a moustache in this wild and wacky modern world, but will fight for the rights of moustache wearer's nation wide.

I also thought this ad was a little ridiculous.

I find it funny how it has only be released in B.C. so far, though. I guess the Tories view us as a real threat.

Amusing ads, but they may backfire. Also points to Conservative inconsistency since Harper's Quebec lieutenant and campaign co-chair, Senator Claude Nolin, wants to legalize drugs too, and even issued a Senate report recommending just such a thing -- see http://juror.ca
