I am the undertaker, hear me squeak

On my buddy Charles Adler’s show, this fine morn.


  1. Marc-André Chiasson says:

    New slogan for you:

    Warren Kinsella The Undertaker…Everything He Undertakes, He Carries Out 🙂

  2. Dean says:

    When did this become a blog?

  3. Ronald O'Dowd says:


    I take your point about Mulroney. Voted for him in 1984 but switched to Turner in 1988.

    But can Harper benefit from the same thing? I wonder, given the fact that Mulroney’s government was never THIS right-wing.

    • Matt says:

      THIS right wing?

      Explain exactly what Harper has done that is so right wing.

      • Ronald O'Dowd says:


        How about starting with limiting or eliminating judicial discretion in sentencing — not to mention bringing in a flurry of mandatory minimums in sentencing while the process of excessive terms in sentencing has already largely been discredited by studies in the USA as not serving as a deterrant to crime.

  4. Fan590 says:

    I really like these Warren and Charles discussions.

    Does anyone else remember the 88 election…basically a referendum on one issue: free trade.

    Otherwise Mulroney would have been toast, I suspect. Like the PCs in 1993.

    Mulcair will be easy to tear down. If you do not want Harper, Justin will end up as the other option. Just wait and see.

    Now on to this rumour Warren is going to run and take down the new Brown in Simcoe….now that would be awesome.

  5. Steve T says:

    Most important observation, of both you and Charles, was that Harper is TOO calm right now. I don’t think it’s because he is confident. I think it’s because there really isn’t any other way he can deal with the slow unravelling of the CPC. Pierre P is just the symptom of a bigger malaise. Many of his star MPs have either left the party, or have announced they aren’t running again. Many loyal party followers, like me, are questioning whether the CPC has run out of gas, and have betrayed many of the principles that drew us to them in the first place.

    My hope, as a small-C conservative, is that the polling numbers will eventually shock the CPC back to reality, and have them return to principled government (not patronage and autocratic rule) and small-C conservative values. However, I’m not holding my breath. I expect it will take a drubbing at the polls to get that awakening.

    • EB says:

      Is a small-C conservative the same thing as a Progressive Conservative or a Red Tory? If so, didn’t you get the memo? We are extinct.

      • EB says:

        Having been driven out of the “Conservative” Party, that’s how I ended up finding WK. I used to hate all things Liberal; now I look to them for solace.

        • Michael Bluth says:

          I never really get why ‘red tories’ feel there is no place for them in the CPC.

          Harper has been very quiet on social issues. Probably a big part of why he has won three elections and is at least competitive entering his fourth.

          What are things that Harper has done that would be offensive to the red tory crowd?

  6. Joe says:

    Harper is not too calm. He is simply such a control freak he controls the timing of his panic attacks. I’ve heard on good authority that he is setting his hair on fire at noon tomorrow.
