Three Amigos? Three Musketeers? Three Stooges?
I’m trying to think of a good name for the three leaders of the coalition party that is looking to take over Canada.
I think three stooges fits.
You see, Stephane Dion, Jack Layton and Gilles Duceppe want to form a coalition government. They announced that they will defeat a Conservative economic package next week and then ask Gov. Gen. Michaelle Jean to throw the Conservatives out of power and let the three of them take over.
They will even let Dion be the leader of the coalition.
I’d laugh if I thought they were joking.
Stephane Dion brought the Liberal party to one of its worst ever showings in the election two months ago. He can’t even lead his own party properly, and now he’s expected to be the leader of three? How does that work?
And where is the logic in it? “Yes, Mr. Dion, you failed miserably last election, but we think you’re the best option we have to lead this coalition.”
I wonder if Canada will go down like Dion’s election numbers.
The Bloc will be looking to get as much as they can, and will hold the other two parties hostage. Won’t give more money for bridges? There goes the coalition. Won’t give more money for language lessons? No more coalition. Need a new French language law passed? Better say yes, or bye-bye coalition.
I’m most disappointed in Jack Layton. He’s supposed to be smarter than this. He was always the politician that seemed to have the most common sense, but no longer.
How do you get three parties to agree on one thing anyways? Do they design a three-sided coin? Paper, rock, scissors? Or maybe a game of Twister.
I think the governor general would be smarter to say, if you don’t want to vote for the economic package, then don’t. If you vote against it, it’s an election.
I bet Dion would back down pretty quickly. There’s no way he would risk sending his party further down the polls, and would probably help lead Harper to a majority.
On the flip side, this sounds like a good idea for a television series. Three wacky people are forced into a situtation where they have to be a leader, only they never agree on anything.
Unfortunately, Canadians might be living this TV show every day.
