Bob’s Wood Problem

Bob’s Wood Problem

I ran Bob Rae’s proposed idea of holding an election on the softwood deal by my mother…once again, it is worth reprinting

Me: Ma, would you accept the Liberals overthrowing the government on the bad softwood lumber deal?
Rosie: The only “soft wood” there is right now is the Liberal Party. They have no leader.
Me: (slightly perturbed my mother used the word wood in a non-kosher way) Ma, we are electing a leader in December.
Rosie: So until then don’t talk about elections. Who is the guy who came up with this?
Me: Bob Rae.
Rosie: Who?
Me: the former Premier of Ontario
Rosie: I thought that guy’s name was Peterson.
Me: No Ma, the NDP Premier of Ontario.
Rosie: Ah. Once a complainer, always a complainer, didn’t you say that?
Me: Ma we have to choose the best leader. We have to support whoever wins.
Rosie: Well Anthony, then tell someone to go hit him over the head with a piece of softwood before he throws the Liberal Party off a cliff.

Classic. I love it.

Yup. That just about sums it up.

Your political conversations with your mother always seem like out of a Liberal Ad that didn't make the cut.

If we made ads that called the Liberal Party "soft wood" we would make Earnscliffe look like geniuses
