Political Three’s Company

I touched upon this in my last post with the title and a paragraph at the end, but I think it needs expanding upon.

For those who don’t know, Three’s Company was a TV show back that ran for eight seasons in the 1970s and 80s. John Ritter starred as Jack Tripper, a bachelor who moved into an apartment with two single women. The landlord would allow it because he was told Jack was gay, but if he found out otherwise, Jack would have to move out. Much hilarity ensued as womanizer Jack would get into hijinks every week.

Doesn’t this sound like what is happening now with Canadian politics?

Jack is Stephane Dion. Gets into hijinks, moving into an agreement (coalition) that doesn’t make sense, has to pretend he’s something he’s not (in Dion’s case, a leader) and has to learn a valuable lesson every week.

Janet is Jack Layton. A person who preaches common sense, but the third banana of the group. The least amusing person of the bunch.

Chrissy is Gilles Duceppe. Fun to watch, but not much there.

The landlord is Stephen Harper. He’s supposed to be in charge, but there is deception right under his nose, and thinks he’s in control more than he is. Wears a lot of sweater vests.

Terri is played by Elizabeth May. She’ll be on the show later, but for now, doesn’t have a speaking part.

    If Jack is Dion, then Larry would have to be one of his friends. Maybe the new Liberal leader, whoever it might be?

    kk so this whole coalition thing is one of the stupidest things ive ever heard of. I mean common these are grown men acting like a bunch of sore loser whiney babys i expected more from Layton but i def expected this from someone like Dion if they end up getting in power Quebec will end up separatiung because 2 out of the 3 people in the Coalition are pro-Quebec. Not only will they separte but they will separate and still use our currency like what the hell. And if this thing goes to another election we will be wasting millions of dollers for a cause that is not even worth it.

    Anyone that wants Dion to be in power which he will dont even think for a minute that just because Layton is on there that Layton will have a lot of say because Dion and Gilles will have the most Dion was already made the leader of the Coalition so Basically if you want the Coalition you want quebec to separate from canada but use our currency.

    I say they should stop being whiney babys stop crying and complaining that they are not in power and wait till friggen January.
