Warren Kinsella: Theorem: capacity for political stupidity = infinite

@TeamWildrose suggests @Kathleen_Wynne a man. #CPC suggests @JustinTrudeau a woman. We've reached Sandbox Singularity, #cdnpoli. — Warren Kinsella (@kinsellawarren) May 28, 2016 . . . → Read More: Warren Kinsella: Theorem: capacity for political stupidity = infinite

Warren Kinsella: Donald Trump is the GOP nominee

As Kory T. and me predicted, months and months ago. My wife lost the bet and owes us a fancy dinner. Here’s another prediction: he isn’t going to win the presidency. Not even close. And SFH can tell you why! . . . → Read More: Warren Kinsella: Donald Trump is the GOP nominee

Warren Kinsella: From next week’s top ten column about the Tories

Eight more points to come! 1. Don’t freak out. You won just about 100 seats despite the Trudeau sweep. You still fundraise better than the governing party. You didn’t lose any of your share of the popular vote – the percentage you got in 2015, in fact, was almost exactly what you got in 2011.

Warren Kinsella: Does piss off a Newfoundlander, plus Premiers and popularity (updated)

…that’s the message I take from this little ARG snapshot about Premiers and their popularity. I mean, Newfoundland’s Dwight Bell was elected Premier right around the same time Justin Trudeau became Prime Minister – and the latter still enjoys record levels of support, while the former is the least popular senior politician in the country! Weird. […] . . . → Read More: Warren Kinsella: Does piss off a Newfoundlander, plus Premiers and popularity (updated)

Warren Kinsella: Tragic

The news about the Tragically Hip’s Gord Downie will affect many people, today. It will likely see them thinking about the connections between their lives and the songs that the band performed over thirty-odd years. (Like the performance above, their historic – for Canadians, anyway – appearance on Saturday Night Live in 1995.) Music does that, […] . . . → Read More: Warren Kinsella: Tragic

Warren Kinsella: In this week’s Hill Times: it was a stupid thing to do 

On the night in question, I was at an event in Toronto honouring Senator Murray Sinclair. As it was getting underway, I received a text message from one of the Members of Parliament who had been at the very centre of it all.    “He should not have been out of his seat,” the text […] . . . → Read More: Warren Kinsella: In this week’s Hill Times: it was a stupid thing to do 

Warren Kinsella: Abacus on Trudeau going Raging Bull

Top two findings: • While Ottawa politicos and media seemed captivated by the incident, just 14% of our respondents followed it very closely. • The broad majority of those surveyed (71%) said it had no impact on their view of Mr. Trudeau, 23% said it made them feel worse about him; 6% better.   I’ll […] . . . → Read More: Warren Kinsella: Abacus on Trudeau going Raging Bull

Warren Kinsella: Kudos to PMO and Justice staff

It can now be revealed: neo-Nazi Paul Fromm (and Your Ward News supporter) was going to use Parliament Hill for a press conference this week. And senior staffers at PMO and Justice stopped it. In all the manhandling and elbowing of the past week, it was an easy story to miss. But the PMO and Justice […] . . . → Read More: Warren Kinsella: Kudos to PMO and Justice staff

Warren Kinsella: Act of contrition

Have heard from many insiders that @JustinTrudeau's truly contrite. We should credit smart senior staff and a smart wife for that. #cdnpoli — Warren Kinsella (@kinsellawarren) May 20, 2016 He knew he had made a mistake, I’m told. But he was still read the Riot Act by those closest to him, I’m also reliably informed. […] . . . → Read More: Warren Kinsella: Act of contrition

Warren Kinsella: Putting the “progressive” back in PC?

Interesting. That, clearly, is what newly-minted Ontario Progressive Conservative Party leader Patrick Brown wants to do: make the “progressive” part of their name a reality again. It’s fair to ask this question, however: has it ever been progressive in the past generation? In my view, it hasn’t really been that way since Bill Davis. John Tory […] . . . → Read More: Warren Kinsella: Putting the “progressive” back in PC?

Warren Kinsella: In this week’s Hill Times: beware sweet-talking writers bearing gifts, Trudeau folks

Meet Ben Rhodes, Deputy National Security Advisor for Strategic Communications to the President of the United States of America. Or, as he was recently described in a headline in Foreign Policy magazine, an asshole. That’s a quote. “Asshole.” Foreign Policy – that most revered and reserved of publications, the sine qua non of the U.S. […] . . . → Read More: Warren Kinsella: In this week’s Hill Times: beware sweet-talking writers bearing gifts, Trudeau folks

Warren Kinsella: Michael Chong

I’ve met this guy, talked to him, listened to him. He’s the only Conservative Party leadership candidate who could hurt Justin Trudeau, full stop. There may be candidates-to-be who could do that, but he’s the only one so far. Watch this guy.   . . . → Read More: Warren Kinsella: Michael Chong

Warren Kinsella: Madness

This is insane. When something this horrible happens, we need to stop, and carefully assess whether we – and our elected leaders, and the police, and everyone else who is paid to pay attention – are doing what needs to be done. Don’t just ignore this, don’t turn the page. Contact your representatives, and ask […] . . . → Read More: Warren Kinsella: Madness
