So says Tea Party North “leader” Tim Hudak:
What a bloody fool. Can you imagine the Con braying and screeching if Dalton McGuinty had said he had his “foot on the throat” of his principal opponent? You’d never hear the end of it. “That’s not how a Premier speaks,” they’d say.
And they’d be right. Tim Hudak lost because he couldn’t present a positive vision for Ontario’s future. He lost because he launched vicious attacks on “foreigners” and gays and lesbians. He lost because he allowed his party to be taken over by far-right Landowner extremists.
But the main reason he lost is because no one can picture a smirking adolescent as the Premier of our biggest province. Because no one could imagine handing power over to a frat boy who talks about putting his foot on his opponent’s throat.
Walk like a Premier, talk like a Premier. This child doesn’t do either.
