Guelph Liberal supporters on the attack

You have got to be kidding me... the very same day I'm posting about the negativity (mainly sexism) in politics, and what does the Liberal Steve Valeriote (yes, as in Frank Valeriote's relative) go and post today?

He goes on the mudslinging attack, with a post called, "Arf Arf"... and says that the Guelph CPC candidate is nothing more than a trained seal.

Is this another Liberal "Chow Chow" incident?

Steve, the people of Guelph know Gloria Kovach very well, and "trained seal" is not the phrase that comes to mind when talking to people about Kovach. If you'd spent any time talking to people in the riding, as I have when I went and volunteered, you'd know that. She's been a well known and respected City councillor for 17 years, and I don't think the residents of Guelph will take too kindly to your disgusting mud slinging.

Shame on you. I hope Frank "Does the right thing" and calls you out on this one.

UPDATE: Thanks to Scott Tribe, yes, Steve Valeriote is of the same Valeriote's as Frank... though I'm unsure of the actual linkage, nephew, 2nd cousin, etc... from Scott's blog post "Marva comes up a bit short": "I'd like to extend my personal congratulations to Frank Valeriote, the official winner (and Steve V’s relative - he of Far and Wide)."

    All your candidates are trained seals, didn't you get the memo :)

    Good grief - what a stretch...trained seal is what she and all other Tory MP's and candidates are and you know it.

    Get over yourselves - you're acting like kids.

    Considering stuff that the Tories do, this is so mild.

    LOL - you really are trying hard here - not working. You look silly.

    Trained seal? At least our MPs aren't afraid to show up and vote?

    I assume all those Lib MPs hiding with their tails between their legs in the hallway of the Commons is due to their brave independence and not because Dion told them to run away?

    Brave Sir Dion, he bravely ran away!

    born and raised in guelph.willow road senior public followed by GCVI.

    the valeriote family is well known and respected in guelph.

    frank deserves his candidacy and his eventual victory as guelph's next liberal MP.

    the royal city bleeds red.

    All the left wing nutbars on liblogs would be all over one another saying "how childish the Blogging Tories are." What a bunch of hypocrites that they are. Especially the one's who criticize under Anonymous name. Real brave isn't anon post 05:46 pm? I think I know who anon is,because I have seen a similar comment on another post. IF IT IS HER,SHE WOULD COME OUT AND ADMIT IT. If not,then she
    is just as childish as some on the liblogs.

    But we shouldn't be surprised with some of these nutbars on the liblogs. They just follow their party like sheep's. Remember the liberal party is always criticizing the government how bad that they are,at the same time they are the ones who are keeping them in power. But I digress great post C.C.

    I'm starting to think you need to grow a thicker skin. I'm sure the candidate herself has. Saying that a candidate is going to do nothing more than what the leader says is a common political attack. Using a bit of humour to get the point across isn't out of bounds either.

    Politics is not for the easily insulted. Never has been.

    I think it's great...when the eventual attack "right back at 'em" occurs, we shold hear no whinging from steve v and crowd, right?

    Gloria Kovach - the only president of the FCM to be fired. What a candidate!

  • At Wed Jul 30, 11:49:00 a.m. EDT, Blogger Christian Conservative said…

    Yes Jason, but the question is, fired by whom...

    As I recall, there's been no problem with past FCM President's standing for election while still the President... you might want to ask your own MP about that one.

    Since the FCM cleared her of any wrongdoing, the reasons for her ouster still remain unsolved... maybe the FCM should come clean. Otherwise, they stand to lose their appearance of non-partisanship.

    "Gloria Kovach - the only president of the FCM to be fired. What a candidate!"

    I guess jason has still not learned re: the di novo fiasco.

    oh well, it's not like anything bad happened...other than getting bit in the ass

    I just sent an email to Frank Valeriote telling him about Steve Valeriote's post and that he ought to do the honorable thing and apologize to Ms. Kovach on behalf of Steve, and that he ought to get Steve to apologize as well.

    I challenge Gloria to come out with her evidence that the FCM fired her because the "powerful" leader of the Opposition asked her to be fired.

    Dion has denied it, so it's up to Gloria to either produce the evidence or admit it's a baseless charge that is nothing more then a smear attempt.

  • At Wed Jul 30, 02:01:00 p.m. EDT, Blogger Christian Conservative said…

    FCM has a gag on her, from what I understand. If they're willing to lift it, I'm sure she'll put forward what she's got.

    Feel free to help and ask the FCM to lift the restrictions. ;-)

    I just sent an email to your mom telling you to get off the computer and stop tattling.

    *sheesh* What are you? 10?
