Above Image: Mario Leclerc, Federal Party Tramp
The "Original Shuffle" video
As in the video, in the political shuffle dance, one guy gets to do his stuff, and another does his, and another does his -- and there might be a girl doing hers, but hardly anybody notices -- and so on. And the people get to cheer for the best rendition.
Then there's Mario Leclerc who just sort of tramps around:
Mario Leclerc bows out of federal Liberal nomination race in Stormont-Dundas-South Glengarry
Ouch! Progressives support this guy? Is there a neoprog faction now? Is he obliquely referencing the new NDP leader?
When Leclerc first announced his decision to convert to Liberal he put it this way:
Lerclerc will only dance where he's certain he can win. And he can dance to any tune. As a party tramp, he carries several changes of conviction over his shoulder in a plastic bag tied to a pole.
One wishes he had thought to pack a bar of soap to wash out his mouth.
Tramping around like that takes a toll:
"I’m tired" he says, "of hearing people say in every sense that they’re fed up with our politicians and policies. People do not realize the privilege they have and the people who fought hard to own it."
He means, of course, that it's a privilege to vote for him, no matter how dictatorial and racist he appears to be. He presents himself as a liberal while believing that voting should be made a "mandatory civic duty".
He says mandatory voting "would greatly help to improve democracy".
The poor fellow seems badly afflicted with a disease called cognitive dissonance.
He also thinks that if, as a protest, you choose not to vote, then you forfeit your right to protest!
Good grief; how do these convictions fit with being a Liberal Party candidate? Does Leclerc know something about liberals that we don't? Or does he just say whatever he thinks will work at any given moment?
You know, like a politician.
Well, I for one have never stayed home on voting day. I'm already looking into what interesting fringe party I can place my mark beside in the next big puppet shuffle.
Hard not to wonder, though, where Leclerc will turn up next.
Was it this graph that caused his latest flight?
Libs; Cons; NDP; Greens.
