Little Timmy is upset about his tree

Tim Hudak reacts to his biggest policy issue.

You can’t make this up.

Yesterday, Legislature staff mistakenly placed the Speaker’s Christmas tree in front of Hudak’s office.  It was there for a few hours.  They realized their mistake, and went back to put it in the right spot.

Hudak – perhaps hoping we’d all forget he’s been a No Plan Zone for 519 days – started Twittering about this burning issue non-stop.  He even had staff do up stickers, at taxpayer expense, about his missing tree.

This guy makes Charlie Brown look like Winston Churchill. Swear to God.

Mysterious tree appears in spot outside door but looks more like Charlie Brown Christmas tree than original http://plixi.com/p/60026921 <http://plixi.com/p/60026921>

    Droll, but amusing. I suspect if this happened in Alberta the Oppo wouldn’t be using Twitter, they would be at Rona buying rope.

    Well, when your whole plan is to wait for the other guy to say something, then bitch about it, you have plenty of time to worry about such things, I guess.

  3. Namesake says:

    Interesting shift from his denigrating the mysterious arrival — which amounts to looking a gift horse in the mouth, since he soon decided it _was_ his — to extolling its virtues and feeling aggrieved at not being able to enjoy the fruits of his unearned labour (= feeling entitled to someone else’s entitlements?).

    And he issued an APB & ordered his staff to track down his missing strawberries, er, fir tree? Yikes; ship-shape of things to come:

    I don’t know why, but when I see that Charlie Brown picture, I only hear Hudak’s voice saying, “rats”!

  5. He’s like Sarah Palin, in pants.

    Off Topic Alert

    I often click the Google ad on the side of sites I visit & do so absentmindedly. Given the context of the Woodbridge By-election’s winner I just thought the link was cute:
