So we get an anonymous comment from someone refuting Joan Bryden's article (posted in part here yesterday). The article deals with the allegations that the parties national executive is propping up their 'man' McKenna.
The comment goes something like this :

Meet the new boss...
You’re a member of the board. You spent 15 years pushing Paul Martin into the Prime Minister’s Office, then watched him implode. There are only two possibilities: You backed the wrong horse, or you backed the right horse and then brought him down with your atrocious strategic and management skills.
Now, you’ve decided Frank McKenna is your ticket. Based on your past experience, there are only two possibilities: You’re backing the wrong horse, or you’re backing the right horse and you’ll eventually bring him down with your atrocious strategic and management skills.
The responsible thing to do is to avoid foisting him on your party, or yourself on him. But that’s not really how you roll, is it? So if you have your way, the Liberals will be stuck with him, he’ll be stuck with you, and the rest of the country will be stuck with Stephen Harper because you’re busy running another leader into the ground. Well played.
