Step Right up and Take a Number!!
Next Face has advocated since day 1 that the new leader of the Liberal Party has to be a serious candidate with serious ideas. Pretenders need not apply. So faithful readers can imagine the alarms that went off in our press room when the news came over the wire that one Hedy Fry will be making an announcement that she too would like to be considered for the position of Liberal Leader. Tobias has still not recovered from the shock and is convulsing in the fetal position by the photocopier. Faint cries of say it “ain’t so” rise every so often along with the gentle weeping that Tobias hasn’t shown since we all found out that Belinda joined the party.

Should I devote time and energy in writing whether or not she is the ideal candidate for the party of Laurier, King, Pearson and Trudeau? Should I be dismissive?

As we speak Hedy gets ready To launch Her campaign To be leader Of the Party As we speak Hedy believes she Is ready To be leader Of the Party Of Trudeau and King As we speak People Are burning Their cards Of the Party As we speak
