You know, just as every secular, cultural or religious muslim should loudly, publicly denounce every act of violence committed by barbaric individuals and groups who exploit an ideological interpretation of Islam to justify their carnage and sexual terrorism.
And now this, in my email box this morning.
Just put "Eve Adams" in a search box on Twitter. Hundreds of tweets and re-tweets. Some amusing. Some informative. Some trenchant. Some ... not so much.
One has to wonder if the testosterone-endowed members of the LPC even bothered consulting the savvy women in their party to ascertain whether accepting Adams was a sagacious decision.
At DJ! we wrote this about Adams right after the 2011 election. Before the first break-up with Soudas. Their reconciliations. The betrayals. The ongoing media soap opera.
So. Did Eve Adams jump or was she pushed?
There's a third possibility.
She and her partner Dimitri Soudas are being deliberately planted by Harper to gather intelligence on the LPC election campaign plans and to deliberately derail them. Yes, that would be quite a crafty, brazen Machiavellian move — but remember how the CPC was founded?
Or, the toxic duo's tactical defection to the neoLibs is temporary, one that they will leverage when Harper is gone and the CPC flounders as the PC did after Mulroney's departure + Kim Campbell's ignominious defeat in 1993. Will DimEve Soudams™ triumphantly return to the party with considerable political *assets* that can be exploited?
Frank has another take, as always quite irreverent.
Only time will tell.
Meanwhile, one is reminded of this famous unblonde quote:
