It is truly thoughtful of Donn Esmonde to help out the "mystifying" campaign of Brian Higgins. Poor Higgins is "partly at the mercy of the national party." Esmonde says that he is not endorsing anybody. Excuse me, but I can just see the grin on Esmonde's face as he wrote that.
Not endorsing anybody? His column was nothing if not a commercial for Higgins. Esmonde spent a large part of his space pointing out all the wonderful things that Higgins has done. He thinks that it is necessary to do this because Higgins has been using national party ads that bash President Bush and has not spread the word himself. Oh, poor Brian. Give me a break.
