- The Washington Times

“One of the best books of the year.”

- The Hill Times

- National Post

“[Kinsella] is a master when it comes to spinning and political planning...”

- George Stroumboulopoulos, CBC TV

  1. Her candidacy has enraged Liberals across the country – including veteran, elected Liberals.
  2. The Conservatives were delighted – genuinely and truly delighted – that Trudeau took her after they’d dumped her.
  3. The media have unanimously condemned it – with one senior pundit even saying Trudeau looked “crawlingly demean[ed]” by it all.
  4. She does not have a sterling reputation for candour, or commitment to the Liberal cause.
  5. She was (and still is) a Conservative, and she was always among the most rabid Conservative partisans in the House.
  6. More than any other case, Adams’ recruitment by Butts et al. definitively showed Trudeau’s “open nomination” promise to be a farce.
  7. Adams was a long-time Conservative problem.  Now she is a long-term Liberal problem.
  8. She has no connection whatsoever to the riding she wants to run in.
  9. Against the rules, I’ve been told memberships have been paid for by Adams’ team – and there will be shipped-in chaos at the vote Sunday.
  10. Marco Mendicino is an amazing guy with an amazing C.V.and Conservatives know they’d lose against him, but they’ll win against Eve Adams.

Unlike a lot of Liberals, I don’t despise Eve Adams (although her fiancé isn’t going to be sending me any Christmas cards this year, apparently).  She acted in her own self-interest, and got Justin Trudeau to do exactly what she wanted him to do.  She played him.

Bear with me here, but I was listening to The Cure’s ‘Drowning Man’ on the way to work this morning (and bizarrely), it made me think of Eve Adams.  She was drowning, too – weighted down by years of bad judgment, and over-the-top Conservative partisanship and serial controversy.  And Justin Trudeau – whose decline in the polls commenced with Eve Adams’ arrival - didn’t just throw her a life line.

He jumped right into the water with her, and commenced drowning, too.


UPDATE: Ivison, and the Post, are having a very bad day.

I mean, the leader hasn’t given her the green light to suggest to voters that she’s already the Liberal candidate, has he?

Has he?

It’s weird, the stuff I think about.  But, then again, politics is weirder.

Plague Vendor owns my tiny black punk rock heart, but God Almighty I love Western Addiction, too. Black Salt.  What a friggin’ tune.
