Fran O'Sullivan is often at her best when she is tearing into Dear Leader but I don't recall her doing that for sometime.
Today, however, we have an acceptable substitute, glowing coverage of her leadership rival/successor Phil Goff.
Fran is lavishing the praise on Goff for his work in securing the trade deal with the US.
Adam Smith at the Inquiring Mind sees the article as little more than a 'puff piece' for Mr Goff.
Certainly it is very positive indeed.
But to be fair to Phil Goff, despite his foolery with Arafat, he has come across as quite sensible; and trade with the USA is far better than trade with that producer of deadly baby milk, China.
So yes, as Adam says, Phil is preparing for a BBQ at his place. And come November when he surveys the wreckage of the Liarbour Party, after Dear Leader's poisonous infatutation with poodle Peters, Liarbour can be sure of one long hot summer!
