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 firstname.lastname@example.org, 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!
