Backwards Bob

I am going to let you in on a little secret.

Part of me was actually hoping Bob Rae would pull off a victory on the weekend.

And no it's not because I am a closet socialist; it's because the National Citizens Coalition had a great anti-Rae campaign all planned out.

The theme was going to be "Backwards Bob", a man who likes to move things backward -- like economies.

We were going to have cartoons, billboards, newspaper ads.

It would have been fantastic.

Oh well the NCC's loss is Canada's gain.

Gerry, I know exactly how you feel.

I was starting to rev up the 'ole satire machine' myself...

"Stephen Harper's RCMP bodyguards were startled to hear shouting and clapping emanating from the Prime Minister's office this morning. Upon entering the room, they were transfixed by the sight of the normally unflappable Stephen Harper tap dancing on top of his desk."

"It's a sombre rite of passage for aspirants to Liberal Party greatness... the dark moment when you sell your soul to the devil."
