Star: Tory “less than inspiring, insipid, puzzling, strange, flat-footed.”

And that’s the NICE stuff said about Tory.

Ouch.

    But this is the paragraph Warren liked the most:

    Contrast all that [lacklustre campaign launches by Tory, Stintz, Soknacki] to the Olivia Chow launch last Thursday and the days that have followed — slick, organized, high-powered, up-tempo, media savvy, and with a vibe that says, “Look, I’m here. I’m applying for the job as mayor. And you’re going to have to go through me to get the job.”

    Apart from policy, this is the difference: Tory just doesn’t make people feel enthusiastic. Disregarding Ford for the moment, the race between Tory and Chow is like Romney versus Obama right down to the golf lessons for the binders full of women. With Ford in the race playing an incumbent Pantalone to Tory’s Smitherman, I don’t think much of Tory’s chances.

      Looks more to me like Olivia and the four horsemen of the Aflopalypse. I’ll leave it to you guys as to which of Tory, Stintz, Soknacki and Ford is Conquest, War, Famine or Death :-)

    Less than inspiring, insipid, puzzling, strange, and flat-footed also describes the type of leadership he would undoubtedly deliver, if elected Mayor.

    • VC says:

      It also describes his career counseling for women. I’ve also heard that “ol’ flat-foot” is Tory’s nickname around the clubhouse at the country club (I can’t confirm it since I’m not part of the elite membership).

    Finding myself on side with you for once, I’m just curious as to whether it might not be better for progressives if Tory we less attacked so that he might better split the Rob Ford vote. Unless the fear is that the Ford vote collapses completely and switches over to Tory, which in my view is a long, long shot.

    For those opposed to Tory, all they have to do is run the picture of him and the Fords. A picture is worth a thousand words? works for me.

    The Toronto Star doesn’t like John Tory. Now that’s news. Also this week, the sky is blue and water is wet.
