Every Picture Tells A Story
The Liberals are out in full force tonight.
CBC is running video of Paul Martin, John Manley, Sheila Copps, Tony Clement (OK, so he's technically not a Liberal, but close enough) scouting out the ethnic (and SARS paranoia) vote.
All of them seem to have gone to the same Sihk temple and topped their heads off with the same bright-orange faux turban that one must apparently wear in such settings. I laughed until I cried when I saw Manley, for whom I might have voted before this tragic event.
Actually, Sheila Copps looked quite fetching in a simple dark scarf. She'll have to put a pistol to my head, though, to get my vote, and she'll probably not get it even then.
Does anyone remember how Gilles Duceppe was ridiculed in the press when he toured some Quebec cheese factory and was required to don the obligatory hairnet?
Not that I have any brief for him or his BQ ideology but can we at least savor this complete moment of . . . double standards?
