A meme I can get behind
"In your heart, you know we have to get Don Cherry elected as The Greatest Canadian."The Monger (this made me laugh for 15 minutes):
"It would annoy everyone worth annoying in this country."
"Above all he stands up for moral qualities lying neglected in a dusty corner of our civilization: courage, honour, patriotism, and squeezing more out of your talent than the Good Lord put into it."
"Anyway, lots of people...are suggesting voting for Don Cherry, both as a recognition of the man himself and as a useful thumb in the eye of Our Socialist Betters at the MotherCorp.
Not only do I heartily agree (show those leftie wanks the error of their ways, giving us peasants a chance to speak our "minds"!), I think Cherry could actually win. It's all vote-splitting, baby!"
"And now the 3-way. Tommy Douglas, Pierre Trudeau, and David Suzuki. Sounds like the set-up to a bad joke about beet soup: so a socialist, a marxist, and a communist walk into a bar..."
And Evan Kirchhoff, with the cherry on top:
"For these and many other reasons, I believe it is clear that Don Cherry deserves to be voted Greatest Canadian, especially when compared to finalists such as Lester B. Pearson (inventor of "Scotch" tape), David Suzuki (conservative publisher), or Terry Fox (champion sniper).I'm George Bush, err, Matt Fenwick, and I approve this message. As Cosh notes, the "professional liberal sourpusses" are already going on record, horrified that Cherry even made the top 10. George Johnson, on A3 of today's Calgary Herald ($$ubscriber only), piles on with Garth Woolsey (and counting!), and actually concludes his column with the words "For shame."
Apropos of absolutely nothing, Mailinator is a site where you can create unlimited numbers of temporary addresses for receiving e-mails."
Yes, that is reason enough to vote for Cherry! Me, I'd do it just to hear Bruce Dowbiggin's voice go up another octave.
