Canada's Natural Drooling Party
By John R. Bolton

Let me start off this article by stating that I haven't spent much time paying attention to the Liberal leadership race. I can name a few of the so called leaders in this one horse political race, but we all know the successor to Michael Ignatieff has already been chosen. Some guy named Trudeau is about to be chosen as the sacrificial lefty to be thrown into the meat grinder that is Stephen Harper's Conservative Party. You can bet the long knives are being sharpened and the first pin-point attack ad is ready to be unleashed the moment the final leadership vote has been cast. It's kind of sad in a way, because the Libs are experiencing another moment (among many) of insanity. If the Liberal Party was a batter they would be 0 for 3 and on their way back to the minor leagues.

Calgary - March 8, 2013 - Let me start off this article by stating that I haven't spent much time paying attention to the Liberal leadership race. I can name a few of the so called leaders in this one horse political race, but we all know the successor to Michael Ignatieff has already been chosen. Some guy named Trudeau is about to be chosen as the sacrificial lefty to be thrown into the meat grinder that is Stephen Harper's Conservative Party. You can bet the long knives are being sharpened and the first pin-point attack ad is ready to be unleashed the moment the final leadership vote has been cast. It's kind of sad in a way, because the Libs are experiencing another moment (among many) of insanity. If the Liberal Party was a batter they would be 0 for 3 and on their way back to the minor leagues. Let's look at the track record of the nose diving Liberals since the end of the rein of the ’Little Guy from Shawinigan'.

Remember Paul Martin, the heir apparent to Jean Chretien, the guy eaten alive because the sins of the left caught up with him? As a conservative I both loath and love the word ’Adscam’. Adscam is the crappy tie you get for Christmas that comes in handy, because it's the only one that's clean in the drawer. It's the gift that keeps on giving. Pilfered Canadian tax dollars ended up being a terrific marketing campaign for the Conservative Party of Canada. Oh, isn't irony delicious? Hello former pretty capable Finance Minister... goodbye Mr. Dithers, disposable Lib leader and pitiable PM.

The Liberals continued their race towards obscurity with Mr. Green Shift, Stephane Dion. A man chosen leader not because of his sparkling personality and stellar political acumen, but because fellow leadership candidate Gerard Kennedy made a wrong turn trying to find Michael Ignatieff. The quirks of leadership voting bit Iggy and Bob Rae in the behind. Let's hope the Liberals straighten out their voting procedure so something unexpected like that doesn't happen again. More on that in a moment.

Next up was the coronation of Michael Ignatieff, a man who deserved the top spot because... well... he was from Harvard and he was just better than the rest of us. An accomplished man in everything he did, Ignatieff got carved up just the same and was thrown into the aforementioned Conservative meat grinder. Can anyone forget the brilliant hit piece on Iggy? ’Michael Ignatieff... Just Visiting’... a master stroke and prescient too. Not long ago Ignatieff, the man who would be King of Canada, packed up his bags and went back to Hah-vahd. Who says attack ads are a bunch of lies?

Now the Liberals are about to choose a cult of personality over intelligence, a little cool over substance. Justin Trudeau is about to get control of the Liberal Party of Canada and the left is hanging on every word he says... no matter how vacuous and empty they may be. It's so predictable we could rename the Liberals ’Canada's Natural Drooling Party'. Ladies and gentlemen, next at bat is Justin Trudeau, a man following in the footsteps of his socialist Dad, leading the charge for Canadian liberalism and proving baldness skips a generation. Ladies and gentlemen the Liberal Party of Canada... about to go 0 for 4 and headed to double A ball.

In conclusion... As a conservative, I leave you with a question. Who do you think I should vote for in the Liberal leadership race? I've signed up as a supporter and expect to cast my vote in April. I wonder how many other conservatives are planning on having a little fun with this cockamamie Liberal voting procedure? Hmmm, on second thought I think I'll vote for Deborah Coyne. She's no Justin Trudeau, but she's almost part of the same gene pool.
