Leadership in Action!


Oh jolly bunnies and kittens, what a splendid offer this one is. Seems that the good folks at Liberal Party headquarters, home of the bright red cardigans, have come up with what might be the most thrilling, hell, scintillating of summer fun plans. A bar-b-cue with none other than visiting Canadian, Michael Ignatieff. That's right folks, you and yours will all gather on August 30 for a few relaxing beverages and some char broiled grub and while you're daubing the mustard off your chin, you're also raising money for the Liberal Party of Canada, the other white meatheads. Not only that, you get to visit with Michael Ignatieff, world famous human rights dilettante.

Hang on a sec... actually, you don't get to hang with Michael. You get to be on line for a conference call with the alternate lame, right-of-centre party leader. Talk about phoning it in. All you have to do is visit the Liberal Helpings website, register and be prepared to lick your chops for the leader. Well that and...

As a host you will be responsible for planning your event, inviting guests, covering expenses, and deciding if you want to set a donation price.

Is that all? Why that's just swell. The only thing I can think of that would be more fun than a bar-b-cue with a conference call would be a bar-b-cue without a conference call. The last thing I want to do is stop chewing just to catch platitudes from a useless poseur at speaker phone fidelity. The Canadian political landscape is a desolate wasteland with no decent options but at least there's wieners.

I, for one, would be thankful Iggy wasn't at the barbecue. Send me Ruby Dhalla instead. I can admire her pagent-queen-ness and be amused by her concept of "caregiver" as a synonym for housemaid.

You have to admire the Liberals so principled about everything...

First Rocco Rossi goes kayaking for a little while this summer and now he's proposing a BBQ...

To most, this would sound like a vacation, but not to our shrewd Liberals... nope, it's called "fundraising"...


Liberals, only slightly better than Conservatives....

I take it that Iggy will be phoning in from an undisclosed location.

You have to hand it to the Iggoit, he can take something as straight forward as a BBQ, meet the Leader, and manages to fuck it up,... Now that's talent!

Bwahahahaha! Marvellous and deliciously wicked piece!


Liberals, only slightly less worse than Conservatives....

Who knows, maybe Iggy is writing a sequel to his latest book.... it is easier to study Canadians without actually meeting any....

You're missing the big picture here. They want to do this on August 30, a Sunday. Why would this be held on the Lord's day? Why are they against Christianity? If folks do go, they'll have to come after lunch and wear suits so it looks like they came from church. And when wearing a suit, you'll likely want to eat a hot dog with a knife and fork.

This could be bigger than wafergate.

So, whose ready to join me over at the anarchist table, hmmm? No phones and annoying politicos over hear, just beer and plenty of it.

:D

Lindsay Stewart said...

I'm with Mike!

Sparky said...

U'm in (even though I don't drink)--we can figure out who the hell to vote for next election

"the other white meatheads"
I think I'm in love, PSA. Are you single?

Lindsay Stewart said...

Yes Sheena, there's only one of me.

ADHR said...

Hey, if you're in Willowdale and willing to give the Liberals $650, you can spend a whole 20 minutes with Ignatieff and Martha Hall-Findlay.

Come on. Doesn't that sound like fun?

Lindsay Stewart said...

Fun! Just like celebrating a case of the loose bowels with a big tub of fruit salad and an hour on the trampoline.
