You Too, Can Be An Anonymous Liberal!
I know what you’re thinking. “But if I spew my anonymous rants on a blog or a gossip magazine no one will listen. No credible news source would ever publish them.”
That’s probably true. So just call up one of Canada’s major newspapers with your hot tip (“Fred Mifflin is considering a leadership run”, “Mario Dumont is organizing!”).
But how should you identify yourself? Not by your name or title, silly. Here’s a handy guide:
Influential Liberal: You know a former Cabinet Minister. Or you once met a Cabinet Minister. Or you once saw a Cabinet Minister at a convention.
Senior Party Member: You’re over 30.
Liberal Insider: You were a poll captain on your local Liberal campaign.
A well connected Liberal: You’re friends with Warren Kinsella on facebook.
Veteran Liberal: You’ve been bitching about the party’s leader since Turner.
A Liberal source: While you may not have voted Liberal this time, you have in the past.
Liberal Strategist: You've criticized the party's strategy over beers.
