Secondly: The Legal Action
The fact that May was not saying that Canadians are stupid, doesn't negate the fact that threatening to sue a blogger is bad politics. It's not on the same scale as Harper calling an illegal election, or the Tories illegal campaign spending scandal, or Bernier hanging out with his Hells Angels biker girlfriend and leaving important papers at her place, or the Chuck Cadman affair, or the fact that the Conservatives don't believe global warming is real, or even Peter McKay's betrayal of David Orchard. But it's bad optics suing a blogger for playing a real tape. She should have explained it away.
