Let the healing begin!
Buried in a multi-million dollar debt, the once mighty federal Liberals will need to emerge united from their upcoming leadership race if they want to regain the trust of the population, several party officials said last week.
"We'll make sure that this new party will be reborn from these ashes after this last decade of infighting on the left and right," said Françoise Boivin, who lost her re-election bid in the former Liberal stronghold of Gatineau, Que., to Bloc Québécois candidate Richard Nadeau. "It's difficult to fight against your adversaries, but it's even harder to fight when you have traitors on the inside who are trying to sink everything."
Traitors? I thought Boivin was the traitor, and those people were fighting to save the soul of the party. At least that's what they say. Or maybe the traitors were those people on the outside sniping at the party from the sidelines.
How is the Liberal Party going to ever heal itself unless it is determined exactly who was the traitor and who was poor victim whose loss on January 23 was not their fault?
I suppose we won't really know who the traitors were until a new party leader is elected. Then the traitors will be whoever backed the losing leadership bids.

Adam Radwanski has an eye-opening article in Monday 30 January National Post on life inside the Martin Gulag. Fascinating look into the one-state party.
And the Grope and Flail today is still toeing the Martin line, even though their Godhead has vanished. In a preview of "Gomery 2: Revenge of the Bureaucrats" they have this immortal description of Adscam:
"The report will outline Judge Gomery's recommendations to ensure that Ottawa never lives through another episode like the sponsorship scandal, in which the government wasted millions of tax dollars as part of an initiative to improve its visibility in Quebec."
See, it wasn't the corruption, theft and lying, it was the WASTE! Is the Gasp and Mutter suggesting that what was lacking was efficient corruption?

Machiavelli could learn a thing or two from the liberals...
