Some bad verse from Kinsella this morning re. the Parkdale-High Park byelection:
Morning has broken,
like the first morning
Voters have spoken,
what can you do
Praise for our war room, praise for our overall numbers
Get in our way and we'll still kick the stuffing out of your chosen political leader in a general campaign.
A pretty blase assessment considering that the "war room" generalled Sylvia Watson's campaign straight into the ditch and dragged Dalton McGuinty along with her. But the more interesting question is: is Kinsella signing off on the campaign, as it were? Is this an admission that he was in fact running the machine that so ineptly smeared Cheri DiNovo? (Note: Kinsella ran the McGuinty war room during the 2003 Provincial campaign)
In which case, talk about blowing off a disaster of your own creation! How much does he get paid for splattering the reputation of the whole Ontario Liberal party? Warren, buddy, there's a difference between being Karl Rove and being Karl Rove's idiot cousin! And maybe Dalton did tell you to go for the jugular. He didn't mean his!
