In the backroom sweatshops of federal politics, Sun Media’s resident lefty liberal, Warren Kinsella, is in a class of his own.
We’ll leave it there, but I will tell you this. He is a master of creating a silk purse from a sow’s ear.
Example? Justin Trudeau.
In his column last Sunday, Kinsella gave 10 reasons why Trudeau is a “winner,” and why the Liberal Party of Canada should choose such a vacuous entity to lead them out of the wilderness now that Bob Rae has realized he is no Moses.
It was quite the spin job.
Despite Kinsella’s best efforts, my opinion of Justin Trudeau remains this: He’s cute but he’s dumb, and falls far short of of having the political brilliance of his father, the most destructive prime minister of the 20th century.
Kinsella says Trudeau has “more charisma than the royal family and Lady Gaga combined.”
Yes, that’s what he said.
Kinsella lost me long before typing that ridiculous line, of course, but that’s how he conjures up the silk purse.
To me, columns such as this are little more than comic relief, but many readers take Kinsella seriously. Try not to be one of them.
