You can fool some of the people...

...some of the time...

pick the dumb blonde

“Does Justin Trudeau's process for selecting candidates involve, by any chance, a jug of hooch and a wheelbarrow?
That'd be selecting the Conservative Party's discards...
“After Ms. Adams' request of just a couple weeks ago to seek the Conservative Party nomination in a new seat, I informed her in writing on Jan. 29 that she would not be permitted to run for our Party in the next election due to the misconduct from the Oakville North-Burlington nomination race.”

Her municipal career was also punctuated with embarrassing incidents. During the 2003 race, her husband, Peter, and brother Jim were found with a carload of purloined election signs belonging to her opponents. Charges of possession of stolen property were later dropped in exchange for a charitable donation.
So much for the vetting process.

While we're highlighting Justin's political acumen...
An Abacus poll last week suggested Harper is the major-party leader most respondents would trust to run a large company, counsel an investor, or negotiate a contract. Respondents imagined Trudeau would be the best leader to sing a song, babysit a pet or survive in the wilderness.
That "surviving the wilderness" thing... I'm not so sure.


UPDATE: The Libranos get a new recruit
New Liberal MP Eve Adams has confirmed she'll attempt a run for the Liberal nomination to take on Finance Minister Joe Oliver in Toronto's Eglinton-Lawrence riding.
Yay Justin.

So Justin - will she be unopposed in her nomination bid for the new seat? The Liberals do themselves no favours in accepting such a flawed MP and candidate. But what the hey, Liberal standards are a moving goal post - they are whatever Trudeau cites with his whimsy and undisciplined style. Cheers.

This doesn't seem to bode well for the Liberals: note that on Twitter Monday the ratio of Liberal supporters furious or upset with this move versus happy with this move ran about 7-1. The ratio of Conservative supporters happy with vs. upset with this move versus were running more like 50-1.

I admit that the latter group is going to be skewed (same as there may be some NDPers nervous about this move, but you could search online far and wide without finding them), but that Trudeau's own dedicated sycophants weren't willing to throw their support behind Adams has to be telling.

(There is another group, of course, the professional Harper haters who demand that Soudas give away the "secret agenda" talks, but that's here nor there).

At least we won't have to hear about open nominations ever again.

Speaking of acumen can any Tory explain why Eve Adams was a Parliamentary Secretary until 8:59am yesterday?????

Me thinks thou doth protest too much.

"c-nuck asks... can any Tory explain why..."

lemme see, she was notified last year, in writing, that she would not be allowed to run for the party because of her "irregular" behaviour... i doubt she was allowed to carry anyone's umbrella... never mind the nuclear launch codes.

and still she's justin's latest star candidate. sorry, this one is squarely on pspawn.
