Warren Kinsella: The Great Dealmaker gets dealt

Dowd. End is odd. But main point is assuredly true: DC has figured out the Unpresident, and they are playing him like a  proverbial fiddle.  He’s the kind of guy who likes to say a sucker is born every minute. What he doesn’t say, and doesn’t know, is he’s one of them. 

Warren Kinsella: As you will see, I can’t stop grinning about the Unpresident’s utter humiliation

Warren Kinsella: Spies Are Us: this week’s HuffPo #BCpoli column 

Some people wear tinfoil hats. Some see conspiracies everywhere. Some even look around at public meetings, and see spies where there are none. B.C. NDP MLA David Eby, for instance, sees spies. B.C. Liberal spies, to be precise. A little while ago, Eby — who seems like a nice fellow, albeit a bit paranoid — ...

Warren Kinsella: SAY NO TO HATE

Oppose the neo-Nazi rag, Your Ward News? Opposed Canada post delivering I hate sheet to your mailbox? Now’s your chance to say so! Write this committee! Say NO to hate! 

Warren Kinsella: Confidential Ontario Liberal talking points for that Angus Reid poll

This poll excludes Prince Edward Island, and is methodologically unsound.  Whoever is Premier there could be doing way worse! How about those Raptors? And, um, that’s it. 

Warren Kinsella: SFH, busily corrupting the youth of the nation

…but giving them the right politics!  

Warren Kinsella: Calling all cyber-detectives: your Ontario political mission, if you choose to accept it

It could be disgruntled Liberals, sure. It could be a certain ambitious cabinet minister, aided and abetted by a lobby firm and trade association he is connected to. It could be Tories or Dippers trying to cause dissent and trouble. It could be some shadowy lobby group trying to exert pressure to achieve some policy ...

Warren Kinsella: This makes me sad

It perhaps explains Donald Trump, Kellie Leitch et al. It also can’t be dismissed as a methodological error – the question(s) were very straightforward.  Mostly, however, it makes me sad. We have a long way to go. 

Warren Kinsella: CNN says “breaking news” too often. But this really was breaking news.

This renders it a conspiracy, in other words. Much easier to prosecute. #USPolitics #Trumprussia https://t.co/hl8Hr1jd4o — Warren Kinsella (@kinsellawarren) March 23, 2017 BREAKING – US officials: Info suggests Trump associates may have coordinated with Russians https://t.co/KqFr3GgAPP https://t.co/sDUcxttgC8 — CNN (@CNN) March 23, 2017

Warren Kinsella: The shocking truth revealed 

I can now reveal I was offered the role of Ritchie in Happy Days, but I declined because it was beneath me. I will not be taking questions. — Warren Kinsella (@kinsellawarren) March 23, 2017

Warren Kinsella: The part of the budget that suggests to me that this isn’t the full budget

From the Globe: Despite calls from the United States for Canada to increase its contributions to international military efforts, there is no increase in defence spending in the 2017 budget. In fact, the Department of National Defence is reallocating $8.48-billion that it expected to spend on capital projects, such as planes, ships, trucks and large ...

Warren Kinsella: A Sorbara story

Greg Sorbara was on Steve Paikin’s The Agenda last night on TVO.  I was at Strombo’s place watching Against Me! play in Strombo’s living room, so I missed Steve’s show.  But I certainly heard about it afterwards. On Paikin’s much-watched program, Greg Sorbara did to Kathleen Wynne in 2017 what he did to Jean Chretien ...

Warren Kinsella: Against Me! In Strombo’s living room! With me and Bjorn!

Wish Lisa and Emma could’ve been there, too – but they’re both in Ottawa.  Yes, this was our official wedding dance song. Sing along! I don’t ever want to talk that way again, I don’t want to know people like that anymore. As if there was an obligation, As if I owed you something. Black ...

Warren Kinsella: This week’s column, now on HuffPo!

And Donald Trump’s words sure are coming back to haunt him, aren’t they? It’s beautiful.  I wish him deep and everlasting misery and pain.

Warren Kinsella: Kevin O’Leary doesn’t know who the Minister of Public Safety is

It’s Ralph Goodale. You know, the Saskatchewan Liberal who has been in the House of Commons since 1993, which coincidentally is the same year that Kevin O’Leary moved to Boston, where he has been ever since. Anyway, O’Leary says he’s going to fire Goodale, even though he doesn’t know who he is. My suggestion is ...

Warren Kinsella: Roethke

It’s apparently International Poetry Day, or something like that. Having always loved poetry – and having always lacked the ability to write it well, myself – I decided I would share my favourite poem by my favourite poet with you. He was a drunk, a philanderer, a dropout, a victim of mental illness, and – ...

Warren Kinsella: Having fun writing my own headlines as I watch CNN

Warren Kinsella: This week’s column: campaigns don’t matter – words do

Campaigns matter. That’s a long-time conceit of political consultants, of course.  We say it all the time.  I even worked at a successful political consulting firm which trademarked the phrase. Campaigns Matter™. Campaigns matter – along with its corollary, “the only poll that matters is the one on Election Day” – are central to the ...

Warren Kinsella: Pollyanna says: hail to Canada’s media

It’s not because the NNA nominees are out that I am reminded that we have some of the best media in the world. Not at all. I think, like Jerry Seinfeld, that award shows are horseshit. No, I believe that – for such a small country – we have some of the best reporters and ...
