The Tewksbury Flop

Did anybody catch the Paul Martin "tribute" last night?

Whose idea was it to make former Olympic swimming star Mark Tewksbury the emcee?

It must have been a Chretien supporter, because Tewksbury was awful. I was actually embarrassed for him. Somebody should have thrown him a life preserver!

And to think he is actually supposed to be a professional public speaker.

But then on second thought maybe Tewksbury was actually an inspired choice.

A friend of mine emailed me after it was over and wrote:

"I see Tewksbury as a metaphor for the Martin years -- the impressive resume, the high expectations, the bitter reality."
