Warren Kinsella Jumped the Shark Roughly at the Same Time as the Phrase "Jump the Shark" Jumped the Shark.

As the rhetoric, games, and spin ramp up in the lead up to this fall's provincial election, am I the only one noticing that Kinsella, who's purportedly running the McGuinty war room, carries that same stench of dead man walking that McGuinty has for the past year or so?

His blog has become a desperate, futile, sophomoric and, most of all, an utterly underwhelming attempt to smear his opponents. Indeed, what strikes me most deeply is how unaffected I am by his disingenuousness and puerile attempts to make political hay. In the past such intellectual dishonesty and such stupid attacks would have led me to respond, but now the most I can muster is "meh" and "whatever".

All to say, TiGuy I owe you an apology. You were entirely right. Kinsella has indeed been irrelevant and ineffective within the Liberal party for quite some time and my attacks on him were totally misplaced. I should have targeted someone who continued to be germane and relevant in the Liberal world.

Perhaps he should pass on the torch of cynical, dishonest, and gutter politics to Cherniak and his ilk. Cherniak may not be very intelligent, but he could crawl under people's skin.

Cherniak is like the petulant and overindulged child who kicks and screams when he doesn't get his way, but is so annoying that usually someone panders to him.

Kinsella has become the petulant and overindulged child who's flailing away at his opponents but can't get past their outstretched arms keeping him at bay. Sad! No more posts about Kinsella on here.

You've heard from TiGuy? I thought he was dead.
