Wafergate: The Resurrection

Great post as always at Joanne's in regard to today's front page apology to the PM in the Telegraph-Journal. From a previous post at Joanne's there was this:

" And Liberal MP Dominic LeBlanc, Roméo’s son and a eulogist at the ceremony celebrating the life of the much-admired politician and former governor general, expressed regret Wednesday that Harper might be in any way criticized in a controversy stemming from the event.

“Mr. Harper made a very generous gesture in coming to Memramcook for my father’s funeral,” said LeBlanc. “His conversations with me and my family there were generous and warm.

“And I know that my father would – as I do – regret that his attendance at the funeral would in any way lead to any embarrassment to him.”

Very classy, Dominic."

Very classy indeed. Which is something that seems to be sorely lacking in Iggy's hand picked strategist Warren Kinsella, as well as Libloggers like Big City Lib. I commented on Joanne's blog that I wondered if Kinsella would act with some rare grace and also follow the papers lead and apologize. He did quite the opposite. Conspiracy theories, strong-arming the Irving family, blah, blah, blah. I guess it's hard for a Liberal not to defend the Irving family, whose private jet and fishing lodge were enjoyed by Liberal cabinet ministers. But let's look at how absolutely idiotic WK and BCL's conspiracy theories are.

1. The PM decided to put something back in the news that was over weeks ago.
2. The government is strong-arming the Irvings so they will take multi-million dollar ship building contracts.
3. The PMO had a hand in the firings of the Irving paper, because the editor added something to the story the journalists never included in the original draft.
4. The opposition can't go along with ship building contracts, something that would greatly benefit employment in the Atlantic provinces, due to the apology.

It's now official, WK has completely lost his edge. Perhaps he spent to much time watching Barney reruns, after using a stuffed doll to bash Stockwell Day for, wait for it, his religious beliefs. Perhaps he is still reeling from insulting the huge Chinese community. Whatever it is, it appears he and his followers such as BCL, have lost touch with reality.

p.s. To the above mentioned, just a heads up. There are no Leprechauns. Just because you saw one on a Lucky Charms box doesn't mean they are real. No unicorns either. Elvis is really dead.Barney is really a dude in a costume. And Michael Ignatieff and your Liberals will lose the next election.

I think Warren is doing the best he can with what he has. His hero Jean is gone, and the Liberals have parted ways with him. No longer the connected insider, still loving his Liberal ideas, he is reduced to wearing PJs in the basement and blogging like the rest of us.

Liberals are never wrong. It is always someone or something else's fault. Being Liberal is synonymous with "nutcase".

Very clever title!

Wasn’t the whole exercise just a diversionary tactic manufactured by the liberal party scum and the vile media enablers. The goal of distracting Canadians attention away from the important work that the PM was doing was accomplished by this manufactured controversy.
The apology from this “fibpaper” doesn’t impress me in the least. Go ahead and believe it if you want, but when they pull another one of these “Barney” stunts, hopefully more people will clue in to the fact that nothing the media writes or says can be trusted.

Boy it sure looks that way.

Kinsella just isn't very smart.

The only thing he brought to the liberal party was an utter disregard for the truth and an eagerness to go further into the gutter than anyone else, that's all.

None of his analysis or commentary is in any way insightful. In fact it's lame and pedestrian.

Very good post, really enjoyed it.

There is a saying that those who protest a great deal have something to hide.

With that thought in mind I hereby declare that I had nothing whatsoever to do with any accusation that WK was the one feeding the story line to the media...none whatsoever....really....no truth in that accusation that WK would have anything to do with this at all...even though its completely plausible that he would be a prime suspect, as far as I know the guy didn't do it.
However, as I can't account for Warren's comings and goings I can't verify he didn't.
