There are none so blind...

There are none so blind as those that will not see. ( warning: a few WK links appear in this post)

Keep on doing what you are doing because so far it is working great and it does not take a "strategist" to see it either.


Warren sure seems to have a hate on for the National Post doesn't he. It appears that he has a hate on for them almost as much as he did for Paul Martin.

You remember Paul Martin right? The guy who became Liberal leader by instigating backroom shenanigans to hurry the departure of Jean Chretien. The guy that sent out the recruiters to the US to bring Ignatieff to Canada, and the same guy who then appointed Ignatieff in Etobicoke Lakeshore over the opposition from the Liberal riding association.


I guess that some hate lasts longer than others, but if you ask me there appears to be something very odd about the entire situation.

that Mr. Angry can continue to call PMSH "mr angry" is proof of his delusion - that Iggy continues to employ him, is proof of his inability to lead - and all their follies stem from that - and we are happy

The anger is in the Liberal party now. It appears that it won't go away anytime soon.

"Keep on doing what your doing"
Right, ignore the chaos in your own party and continue to create fake scandals.

Didn't the National Post fire WK's raggedy lieberal ass a while ago??

Kinsella was and remains a 1st Order Asshole.

But he's their asshole so good for us.

As long as he is Iggy's consigliere, we are good as gold.

Kinsella, the legend in his own mind, will go down in our political history as minor infection in our political life.

Ardvark said...

Rob, that might explain some of it but.....

Fred, I think he might, and rightfully so, consider that as a compliment.

Mea culpa: I have tremendous respect for WK not only as a pioneer in the Canadian political blogging world but also as a strategist. What you read here everyday has been greatly influenced by the work of Kinsella. That being said I disagree with his politics in general and for the life of me I cannot figure out just what is going on over there at this time.

All the Liberal brains (old and new) put together can not figure out how to stop their train wreck.

Libs have conceded to losing the ROC to a modern grassroots Conservative party,
and try to hold on, with all of their might, to Quebec.

PMSH needs representation in Quebec to form a majority.
The LPC needs to take Quebec just to survive.

When in power, Liberals were able to hold enough Quebec seats with the 'reps in cabinet' and the 'national unity'thing.

Libs forfeited their 'national unity' card, when they plotted the coalition of losers that included separatists at the table......

The way the regional polling is going, it looks like a heck of a lot of the electoral battles are going to take place in Liberal-held ridings. This gives Harper lots more advantages, on top of the ones he already has.

For example, he doesn't have to waste time in Alberta, except maybe one visit to Edmonton Strathcona. Plus more and more safe CPC incumbents can fan out to nearby enemy-held ridings, to help the local CPC candidate.

The media will notice all of this, and rightfully press Iggy on why he has given up on gaining new ridings, and is basically reduced to trying to save the furniture.

This is all the kind of stuff that doesn't show up in national polls. Plus of course, Harper has gained lots of valuable campaigning experience, and will be tweaking his strategy in many ways--especially in Quebec, where it looks like Harper will have a point man to take on Duceppe when he isn't around.

The Liberals are stuck in the last century.
In fact, Ignatieff is stuck in the 60's & 70's and missed nearly 4 decades in between then and now.

The new Conservatives were created in THIS century - a new party for the future.
This is NOT the old Progressive Conservative party, the last century Reformers or Alliance.
The Conservative founding principals and policy guidelines have taken the best of ALL of the old style parties and created a prgamatic flexible and reliable blueprint for the future...putting Canada first.

Let the old media hacks and Liberal, NDP, BLOC old boys natter and fight over the remnants of the the old fashioned last century glory days.

Canada has moved on.

You remember Paul Martin? Right! He was the one that left Dear Leader a SURPLUS! You remember surplus' don't you. Oh, no, you're Conservative, you spend it all. HA!

CanadianSense said...

Yes I remember Paul Martin who begged and promised the NDP to stay in power.

I remember those $ 25 Billion cut to Education, Health and Social Services.

Those cuts to Nuclear Energy, Maple Reactors boondoggle, the millions that went to the Canadian Steamship Lines, the reports of the auditor General who found Billions missing and unaccounted for under the Liberals.

The Liberals who signed agreements but had NO intention of doing anything on those files.

National daycare,housing, environment, Kelowna.

The Supreme Court found the Liberals guilty of raising taxes in a ruling 7-0.

EI gutted during a recession with higher unemployment.

Immigration files handled improperly.

Spending millions in our courts refusing to help Canadians regarding the tainted blood scandal, veterans wives,pay equity..
the list goes on how liberals used the courts to hurt Canadians.

Omar Khadr spent four years in Club Fed under the Liberals.

The list of incompetence under the Liberals would fill the internet!

The party has been rightly reduced to Toronto and Montreal. Denis Coderre was right about the Rosedale gang being out of touch with Quebec. He should have included ROC.

TangO'Juliette sez:

My late alcoholic musical uncle, Warren O'Tool, former frontman and lead spoonist for the "Turds'o'Hades" suffered long before passing.

His last years were spent with him institutionalized and heavily sedated. In his mind, he was long dead before his real time eventually did run out.

Convinced that he was dead, he would understand nor accept no logic nor reason of any kind, from anyone. He was, in fact, blinded by the 'reality' in his mind.

One day, a stunningly beautiful and very wiley new psychiatrist inherited "uncawarren's" file. She immediately felt that she could break him out of his sorry mental state.

Early one morning she pulled him aside and asked him a few simple questions.

"Do living people bleed when they prick a finger or cut their hand?" Dear Doctor asks.

"Well, of course -- it's a well known fact, that living humans, when cut, bleed. Are you shure you're really a doctor?" he flirts.

"Are you alive or dead, Mr. O'Tool?" she asks.

"Dead." Uncle deadpans.

Taking his hand in hers, she gently exposes the tip his left hand's index finger. Quickly swabbing the finger, she sharply lances the tip, and squeezes.

Drops of blood drip onto the gauze pad she hold in her hand. She smiles at my uncle.

"Now, Mr. O'Tool. Look at that blood coming out of the tip of you finger. What have you to say about that??"

"Holy moley, doc. Do you know what this means?" my uncle shouts at her.

"Tell me Mr. O'Tool. What does this bloodied finger of yours really mean?"

"Well, you ninny -- it means that dead people actually DO bleed when you cut their hand."

Sounds to me, a lot like wk and his take on the scribblings in the Post.

p.s.: Uncle died a bitter, twisted and very angry lonely man, taking with him his coterie of invisible leprechauns, a prancing parade of pink elephants and one pathetic, Petersen-picked, seriously delusional and disillusioned carpetbagging old man who tried to re-invent himself as a Harvard-sent Saviour.

oops. domage.

AND I agree with "Canadian Sense" above. And we all know that this is just a partial list . . .

t. .e. & o.e.

Southern Quebec,
oh yes we remember surplus'
Canada was in surplus until March this year;
and we remember how Martin got those surplus' from 2001-2005.

As charged thru the courts, the Liberal Government illegally taxed workers and their employers thru the EI fund by raising premiums, when the unemployment rate was at 10%.

And then, as the courts reviewed in their decision,
the Liberal Government placed the excess EI premiums into general revenues,
from which account the Liberal Government balanced the books, and posted surplus'
....to the tune of $54 BILLION over 4 years.

Liberals raided enough money from the EI fund in those 4 years to fake their surplus',
to totally wipe out the projected deficit for this year.
