You Know the Liberal Leadership Blows Chunks

When you begin to lose friends over it because you support a different candidate or have a differing view on some of the candidates' policies. Not to mention losing friendships of their supporters for same.

Worse still, it's always not a good sign when you strain friendships over OTHER people's written words in your comment sections.

So, to that end, I will offer up apologies to Warren Kinsella, Rural Sandi and Scott Ross.

We shall all endeavour to play nicer in the sandbox in the future.

Argument and debate are always good. It's just the words we use we should be careful of.

I apologize if I offended you.

That's 1 apology accepted. I hope you get 2 more.

You should probably also extend an apology to one of the leadership candidates. You do get excitable in the heat of a leadership race.

Thank you and I apologize back.

Many are trying to use the "change" thing. I remember Obama didn't do nasties when running, but dealt with attacks immediately - something Kerry and Dion didn't do.

Another lesson - Hillary and Obama had their problems but when push came to shove she worked very hard to help Obama - something like 70 events. It became about the Party and not the person at that point.

I emailed one candidate yesterday Peter, but tomorrow a whole new partisanship may be coming to this blog.

..wading in from the hinterland..

W.K. is famous for his "shoot first, ask questions later" attitude, so for you to appologize seems a little unnecessary..

..and just a note.. without being too inflamatory.. one negative stereotype of the classic Canadian Liberal has been a propensity to "navel gaze", assuming the world sees it their way, and refusing to see their own weakness.. there is nothing wrong with a rational discussion regarding problems or concerns - in fact, it's healthy.
