Dream Team Revisited

As people who read this blog well know, I hate to toot my own horn.

But in this case, I will make an exception, since the National Post has made a letter I wrote to the paper "Letter of the Day".

It's essentially a re-working of a posting I wrote, yesterday, but since I can't think of anything else to post today, I will reprint it here:

Re: Dion Drafts Main Rivals for 'Dream Team,' Dec. 20.

Stephane Dion has supposedly put the federal Liberals on a pre-election footing with the formation of a "dream team." But what are the duties of each member? As far as I can figure, they are as follows:

- Michael Ignatieff: Try not to look like a sore loser.

- Gerard Kennedy: Patiently await the proper moment to undermine Dion's leadership.

- Martha Hall Findlay: Go around the country reminding everybody she is the woman on the dream team.

- Ken Dryden: Give as many speeches as possible so Dion looks charismatic by comparison.

- Scott Brison: Keep everybody else awake during Dryden's speeches.

- Bob Rae: Convince left-wing voters that Liberals can be socialists too.

Sheesh, with a "dream" like that who needs nightmares?

What the country needs is the competence of Rona Ambrose and the honesty of Peter MacKay. Blech.

What's really funny is the media spin around Harper's desire for a federal election in the spring. What party is willing to truly feel the wrath of the nation who are in NO MOOD FOR ANOTHER ELECTION ANYTIME SOON!

Harper's best strategy is to hold out until early summer, or just ahead of the provincial election in Ontario(to throw a wrench in McGuinty's campaign).
