Coincidence?

Interesting blogpost at the Guelph Mercury’s Guelph Votes blogsite today:

Defence Minister Peter MacKay will be going door-to-door with Conservative candidate Gloria Kovach. Mercury staff will also be meeting with Jennifer Wright, “the founder and chief environmental activist of Green Shift.”

Very interesting both of these folks appear in Guelph on the same day. I’d be interested to hear who exactly it was that invited Ms. Wright down today to the Guelph riding; was it the CPC? The NDP? The Guelph Mercury?

I’ll also be very interested to see in her talk to the Mercury how much she injects herself into the political campaign in Guelph. I hope for the […]

Taking cues from the Harper PMO. The Guelph media notice as well.

Much has been made about Gloria’s Kovach’s inability to answer even a simple question such as the Stephen Truscott issue on compensation without referring it to the PMO press office – a sign that she is already taking direction from Harper’s PMO on what answers she should give to the media, which some of us in the progressive and Liberal blogosphere and from some voters of Guelph – judging by their reactions in the Guelph Mercury’s letters to the editor – say raises serious doubts about her ability to fight for Guelph issues in Ottawa under such a control-freak Prime Minister as Harper is.

I disagree with Red Tory and Steve!

It seems our blogging comrade, Christian Conservative, a Blogging Tory member in Guelph, didn’t like Steve calling Gloria Kovach (and by extension, the rest of the Conservative caucus) trained seals over her lack of independent thought on an issue without first getting guidance from the PMO.

Red Tory responded he preferred the description of “Sock Puppet” (and I certainly agree with his analysis over there that Blogging Tories and Conservatives like to mudsling at others, but when they get return fire, they get all whiny about it. Can dish it out.. but can’t take it apparently).

Personally, I disagree with both of these folks descriptions of the Conservative caucus, and by extension their candidates. I think they’re rather like this:
