Helping the Liberals pick a leader

As we all know, the Liberal Party of Canada is on the lookout for yet another victim, er I mean leader.

It’s a tough position to fill.

After all, not everybody has the special skill set it will undoubtedly take to lead a once great party into oblivion.

So perhaps the Liberals should start thinking “outside the box” when considering leadership candidates.

For example, here are a few ideas I came up with:
Elizabeth May 
Not only is May on the same page as the Liberals when it comes to recycling light bulbs or whatever,  she also has lots of practice leading fringe parties

Charlie Sheen
OK I have no idea why Sheen would make a good Liberal leader, but including his name in these sorts of lists is mandatory.  

Stephane Dion’s dog, “Kyoto
As a dog, Kyoto has all sorts of good qualities: he is loyal, friendly and would provide much needed companionship to the Liberal party. And if the party’s popularity declines under his leadership, the Liberal caucus can just smack his nose with a rolled up newspaper.

Justin Bieber
Has a huge fan base, plus has a much better haircut than Stephen Harper.

Osama Bin Laden
Yes, I know he’s dead, but heck so is the Liberal Party.

Come on Gerry, the Liberals are not totally dead. The might become like the Liberals in the UK or in Saskatchewan and Manitoba, but they will still exists even if a perennial third party. Heck maybe it will be like British Columbia where they remain dormant for forty years, but when the Tories come crashing down, they swing to the right and become a pro-free enterprise smaller government party as they are in BC.
