Scott Feschuk is upset that giggles taber didn't tar and feather Senator Finley.
Apparently the lefties think taber is not pro grit enough.
Around political Ottawa, the Senator is a feared backroom operator. He has a reputation as an aggressive strategist who lives for campaigns. He fights hard; he has been called “Harper’s pit bull.”
As manager of the Conservative 2006 and 2008 national campaigns, Mr. Finley was the architect of the back-to-back Harper victories. For his good works, he was rewarded with an appointment to the Senate in 2009.
But the cancer diagnosis last fall sidelined him.
“I put it off, way, way, way too long, knowing something was wrong,” the Scotsman says in his distinctive brogue. He says he was possessed of that “great male optimism” in which he “always figured it would clear itself.” It took his wife, Human Resources Minister Diane Finley, finally to “frog march” him to his family doctor.
