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."
