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.
