Just to be clear

Readers are asking about it, so I thought it was time to respond. The Income Trusts leak story is in no way a "gaffe". It might be a campaign-sinking revelation, a painful reinforcement of the crooked image of Liberals coming out of Gomery (Advice to Ralph Goodale: I kind of like you. Save yourself. Call the police, already!), and a Christmas gift to Stephen Harper (Do you wonder why you haven't heard the Tories crowing about this, yet? Wait for the serious part of the campaign, right about Jan 2. The Conservatives don't want to waste this one). But in no way can it be trivialized or written off as a "gaffe". No points for criminal masterminds or victims of crime, whichever the Liberals might be on this one. (I suspect there will turn out to be a few of each.)
