Which brings me, in typically circuitous and long-winded fashion, to my point: In 2011, with elections aplenty — federally, provincially — sometimes political parties are best judged by who their media “enemies” are, and not their media “friends.”
Thus, this week, various Ontario Liberal campaign volunteers (of which I am proudly one) could be spotted shouting “woot!” when they espied the front page of the newspaper you now clutch in your sweaty maulers.
Wednesday’s Toronto Sun front: “DALTON’S FIBERALS.” Tuesday: “PREEM FLUNKS FISCAL TEST.” Also Tuesday: “DALTONOMICS: ONTARIO’S ECONOMIC PERFORMANCE LAGS.”
And that’s just this week! Last week was (happily) even worse!
Now, if you are a charter member of the latte-sipping, Volvo-driving, Lib-left establishment like me, those headlines should upset you, right? They should cost you votes, right?
