Daniel Bell, The Cultural Contradictions of Capitalism, p. xxv
Well folks, it is all in all done. Now you can date the Liberal Party of Canada! For nothing! Isn't it grand? The lads in the 24/7 Conservative war room must be still laughing. But you got to hand it to Builder Bob! What a job of spin! This last Liberal Policy convention will go down into spin and fart catcher history. What a masterful job. There just has never been anything like it. And, no doubt, there will not likely be anything like it again.
|Wall-e and Eve go home...|
The Oracle of Ottawa has always wondered why there is something called the Sunset Channel in the vulgar media cable package. Now he knows. Now he knows indeed. Do you remember that big policy convention that the NDP threw, just before Jack Layton got ill? Did you watch it on CPAC? The Oracle of Ottawa did. There wasn't a whiff of a smell of any thing un-towards. The Oracle of Ottawa did not get the same impression when watching the machinations of the Liberal policy convention that just past. Why the Oracle of Ottawa got the feeling that he was the observer of a deep clandestine political operation, that was using all the tools and latest technology of the fart catchers and spin doctors art. The plumbers bag of tricks now contains no spanners.
But I know that there are some of you Liberal delegates out there that are very strong willed and independent. The statistically rare types that the Neuro-linguistic programming does not work on, no matter how strongly applied. But take heart. There is good news and there is bad news. The good news is that Builder Bob will probably be the next leader of the Liberal Party of Canada. The bad news is that he will probably be the last leader of the Liberal Party of Canada.
Wall-e the Liberal meddles one too many times....
