Mock Timmy Hudak contest

Yesterday, Tim Hudak – the No Plan Man©– blew a $3 billion dollar hole in his platform. The media have stories about it here and here and here.  It was a flip-flop of epic proportions.

When the PCs saw the headlines they were getting, even with media that usually give them the benefit of the doubt – TORIES FLIP-FLOP ON HEALTH TAX (Sun), HUDAK FLIPS ON FUTURE OF ONTARIO HEALTH TAX (CTV) – his (oxymoron alert) brain trust freaked. They sent Timmy out again, this time to announce that he wants beer for a buck.

My sense was that Timmy’s Team had been knocking back one too many beers, as it was – thus their whiplash-inducing about-face on taxes and health care.  But the beer stunt was designed to divert our attention away from the gargantuan mistake they’d made earlier in the day.  It was a classic beer-and-switch.  Some people even fell for it.

Not us!  We won’t be fooled, will we?  Nope.

Herewith and heretofore, I am announcing a contest to Mock Timmy Hudak.  Here are the deets:

  • Produce a vid, or an ad (PhotoShopped or otherwise), that mocks Hudak’s taxes flip-flop today
  • Send it to me at wkinsella@hotmail.com, or in comments
  • I’ll post as many as I can, as they come in, and we’ll all vote on the best ones in a poll
  • Winner will get $100, and autographed copy of The War Room

That’s it.  You can submit as many entries as you like.

Now, go to it!  We have a mendacious, misleading Opposition leader to destroy!

    Note to all potential entrants: I like imgur.com for free, quick, easy and anonymous image hosting.

    (too many high res entries might slow WK’s mailbox to a crawl)

    “My sense was that Timmy’s Team had been knocking back one too many beers”

    Which explains why Tim wants the buck a beer back. 😉

    Funny how switching a few letters around can make all the difference:

    I’m going for quantity over quality here, as you can already tell (but I’m bound to have a good idea sooner or later)

    $1 Beer = $16 in savings a year
    An actual plan for Health Care in Ontario = Life saving

      My uncle was once bitching about the tax on booze here, comparing it to what he paid in Fla when he wintered there. My father, who for a variety of reasons one could easily mistake for a conservative, said, “Yeah, but when your sister had breast cancer, the only charge we incurred was for the TV in her hospital room.” And my uncle shut up.
