I don't dispute that Butler and to a lesser extent Bloom are insiders.
What I dispute, however, is Torie's claim to be an outsider. She has two powerful political machines behind her. It is unfortunate that she chose that as the theme for her campaign because (i) she did not have to do so and could have still run an effective campaign without it and (ii) because it is disingenuous. As the campaign has unfolded and her attack ads have unfurled, it appears that Tories has no hesitation when it comes to being disingenuous.
