Wonkitties Infiltrates Top Secret Event!!!

Yesterday I attended a luncheon hosted by the Secret Society of which our new PM used to be president. The speaker during lunch was David Frum. Here is a summary of Frum's speech, as best I can recall, keeping in mind I had had two Advil Cold & Sinus, a vodka Perrier and a glass of white wine and barely any food:
Introduction from some guy:
-David Frum went to Yale and therefore is the smartest person ever.
-He has a great career.
-Here he is.
-What great timing for me to be here. Who knew?
-I remember your parents, guy who introduced me!
-Andrew Coyne is the greatest person who ever lived.
-Andrew Coyne's blog is the greatest blog ever.
-Andrew Coyne is more addictive than crack. (And, from the looks of him, probably more damaging to one's private life. -ed)
-The Liberals might try to force another election sooner than we think.
-They are really sleazy. (Agreed. - ed)
-Stephen Harper should not be moderate, he should be bold. (Agreed. - ed)
-My sister is the greatest person who ever lived. (What about Andrew? Frum very fickle. - ed)
-She helped the Tories win more than any of you will ever know. (Do tell! - ed)
-Maybe it won't be Frank McKenna who takes over Libs. Maybe Brian Tobin. (Yay! We are all in favour of handsome politicians. - ed)
-It's time for Canada to grow up and stop sitting at the kids' table. (Agreed. - ed)
-Canadian women don't have enough babies. This is because Canadians are pessimistic about the future. (No. This is because Canadian men are f&^%wits and most Canadian women, as a result, are going to die barren and alone with no love or children. - ed)
-I might run for office one day because I hate what I'm doing now.
-I am not an American citizen.

I may have left some stuff out, but you get the gist. He was pretty excellent.

Hey Wonkin'Feline: Lay off the drug abuse... besides sluring your text, you are starting to view the world through the same surrealism that drives the overly abbreviated dogma of the left.

I hope you get over that cold before it puts you in drug rehab. ;-)

Speaking as a moonbat, I need you ShotDumbers to know that I LOVE WONKITTIES POSTS!

Have you any idea the kind of lying, greedy, egregious scumbag your boy Tobin is?

I guess not.

I'm a bit confused. (That's not too hard for me this time of morning, but that's another thing.)

If your notes are accurate, Mr. Frum is saying that "My sister", i.e. his sister, is the greatest person who ever lived (past tense), and did more to ensure that the Tories would win than any one would ever know.

I retain great admiration for Linda Frum, as I was lucky enough to befriend her during my university days.

However, as far as I have been able to pick up, she hasn't been active in politics lately. It would be sad if she has passed away, but I understand, as far as I know, that she was still alive as of the fall of 2004.

(What Mr. Frum was referring to, I suspect, was his sister Linda's quiet work bringing in Canadian Alliance bigwigs to Toronto several years ago. As far as I can remember, they were a few quiet, low-key events designed to show right-of-center Torontonians that former Reformers lacked horns and tails.

Linda Frum helped to get the two sides talking again to each other in a small way. Her homework gets a gold star!)
