Oh, and Speaking of Whatzisname...

He's now so peeved at Jason Cherniak, for daring to point out that he's a paid lobbyist for an oil-and-gas front organization, and has been about as reliable a supporter of the federal Liberals as Stephen Harper himself that he's posting private email. From 2006. Looksie:

There's more, but some of us actually have jobs, and have to work. Yawn.

Subject: Iggy scared to debate?

Word has it that iggy has cancelled his appearance at a debate in Quebec tomorrow because he has been convinced to not go up against Dion in french.
I can't post on it because nobody would believe me, but I think it would be cool if you could do something. I would suggest you confirm that he is not attending first, though, since my only info comes from the Dion campaign.

I guess people who expect discretion from email recipients should look elsewhere.

Funny thing is? This is clearly supposed to prove that Cherniak thought Kinsella was a Liberal back in August of 2006. Even if that WERE true...

...and it doesn't seem to be: he's leaking info to a fellow blogger, but it could just as easily been any non-partisan who'd be interested in a story about Iggy backing out of a debate...

...that was almost TWO YEARS AGO. Yes, Whatzisname has been gleefully kneeling at Harper's throne since before the last federal election, but even if that weren't the case, he's certainly been a staunch supporter since.

Sure, it's probably out of some misguided belief that it's the only way he can keep Ontario leader Dalton McGuinty in power. "Federal" and "Provincial" are different, I've figured that out.

But come ON. Whatzisname is no federal Liberal supporter, and his identification as some key Liberal blogger does nobody any good. He's more popular than Jason, which is probably why he's counting on that popularity to protect him from the damage this sort of stunt would normally cause, but popularity is a fleeting thing.
