Liberal Leaderships Hopefuls Come to Town

...I was wondering what that stench was. Yes, run for the Southside hills! Liberal Leadership hopefuls Bob Rae, Scott Brison and Carolyn Bennett visited St. John's on Wednesday to speak with the Newfoundland and Labrador Young Liberals. What message did they have to bring?

"We have got to let Canadians know we have learned our lesson and turned the page...If we want to get rid of George Bush's best buddy 'Steve.'"
-Carolyn Bennett
It's really nice to know that the Liberals still haven't learned that we're not all just contestants on 'Fear Factor - the Canadian Political Edition.' You'd honestly think that after the last election, they would have realized that the fear card has shot it's bolt. Canadians just aren't buying the argument that Stephen Harper is some sort of scary bogeyman anymore.

If Carolyn Bennet honestly believes that the Liberals stand a chance when the next election rolls around, she's off her rocker (cue Alexa McDonough: "Is that a sexist remark?"). The new Conservative government, despite some initial shaky moments, has shown strong and decisive leadership - and it has accomplished more in a few months than the Liberal government has in years. Canadians like that - it's new and a welcome change from the way things used to be done.

Anyhow, along the way, the leadership hopefuls were 'screeched in.' For those of you who are unaware, being 'screeched in' means we make you drink Screech and kiss a codfish. I'm not kidding. We get a good laugh and you get to be an honorary Newfoundlander. Fair trade. That's something I'd love to see.
