McKenna Warns Puffins of Further Losses

For most people, this whole Johnston Commission thing promises to be a really gripping soap opera, with allegations ranging from fraud to outright blackmail. To me, however, it's just a royal pain in the butt.

This Just In: Some of the smarter Puffins are coming to their senses and realizing that this whole exercise will come back to bite them. We are already getting truce feelers. Apparently, McKenna is telling them they can't afford to go to war - "Think of the legal bills" - and to just calm the heck down. The gist being, everybody from BackPack Boy on down, go back on your meds and stop acting like inane college students.

Monday Morning Developments from the Puffin Side of the Fence: Bob Rae is all for toning down the enquiry, and keeping to a narrow, strict mandate, otherwise some things will be investigated that should not be investigated. Get the picture?

Tuesday Morning: James Travers tells the Torostar faithful, hey, maybe we're playing with fire here... Maybe this wasn't such a good idea after all..... Although he tries out some pathetic spin, suggesting that "a usually deft Harper is finding the Schreiber-Mulroney affair unusually awkward." I'm not finding it awkward at all. I'm finding it intensely BO-RING.
