Joe Volpe: The Anti-Establishment Candidate

So.... rather than answering pointed questions on the alleged irregularities in Quebec, Joe decided it was a better plan to say that after 51 years in Canada - he is still 'not Canadian enough' to be leader of the Liberal Party of Canada. According to Joe the 'Establishment' is against him. Interesting.

What a load of crap. Joe Volpe is getting all the negative attention he is because of his behavior and only because of him. If he stopped acting like a complete slimeball, he wouldn't get all the negative attention. Notice Maurizio Bevilacqua never got any attention and he was Italian. Hmmm I wonder why? Maybe it was because he was an honest and ethical politician which Volpe is not.

Exactly. He was just taking his cues today from what Gagliano said in The Citizen. it's revolting, really.

BOB RAE’s GHOSTS?

The BIG question of the day is whose supporters were the GHOSTS chasing Joe Volpe today after his press conference about campaign tactics. See here:

As Paul Wells put it at http://weblogs.macleans.ca/paulwells/ :

“He shook visibly from fear, all the way, and well he should: if we had found out who sent him to do his anonymous work, it might well have stopped that person's leadership campaign in its tracks.”

Well, here is your guy. None other than:

RICHARD ZUSSMAN
Special Assistant,
Maurizio Bevilacqua,
Member of Parliament, Vaughan

Richard is also the hapless author of http://shawiniganhandshake.blogspot.com/ who was dumb enough to post pictures of him and his moronic cohort in costume BEFORE the cameras trained on Volpe as he exited.

Here is a picture of Richard so you can compare it to the file footage of Paul Wells jumping up on Wellington Street and ripping off his mask to uncover everything but his eyes.

Maurizio Bevilacqua, if you remember, is BOB RAEs Campaign Co-Chair, remember:

So the low tone of the current campaign has claimed another victim here. Did Zussman and partner go on their own accord to the conference or were they ON ORDERS of the Bob Rae Campaign and their boss MAURIZIO BEVILACQUA.

Maybe they should tell us.
