Hey, Jane Taber!


According to the Globe and Mail's 'senior political writer' Belinda Stronach is the 'Best Partier' in both the Liberal and Conservative parties of Canada.

We assume that Ms. Taber slapped this moniker on Ms. Stronach because of the panty-sniffing NY Times story last week that included this juicy description of one of her former dinner partners:

Because of Mr. Clinton's behavior in the White House, tabloid gossip sticks to him like iron filings to a magnet. Several prominent New York Democrats, in interviews, volunteered that they became concerned last year over a tabloid photograph showing Mr. Clinton leaving B.L.T. Steak in Midtown Manhattan late one night after dining with a group that included Belinda Stronach, a Canadian politician. The two were among roughly a dozen people at a dinner, but it still was enough to fuel coverage in the gossip pages.

And the source for that fine analysis?

Apparently, none other than that unimpeachable paragon of truthiness (and sister publication? - who knew), 'The Globe'.


With impeccable sources and insightful analysis like that, how long will it be before Fast Eddie G. announces that Ms. Taber will be his, and perhaps Allan Gregg's, perfect choice to act as the Globe and (nolongerEmpire) Mail's brokered interviewer for their first exclusive with neo-fawn bubble-boy, and media scrutiny chicken-little, prime minister Stephen Harper?
