Rick Mercer To Seek Conservative Leadership?

Here's an interesting post by our friends over at Mercer-nary:

"According to the "voice of Liberals" the Liberal Underground, it's funny that mercer is a taxpayer subsidized Liberal propaganda machine:"

Rick Mercer To Seek Conservative Leadership?

June 27, 2005They say politics is a blood sport and far be it for me to argue with that theology. However, if you doubt it, just look at the recent attacks on the Conservative party of Canada, or for the matter, the direct attacks, by Canadian funny-man, and liberal blood-dog, Rick Mercer, on Stephen Harper.

Now what does this have to do with Rick Mercer and the leadership of the Conservative Party of Canada? The LU lets the cat out of the bag in an exclusive. Mercer for leader - coming to CBC this fall.

The LU has learned that Rick Mercer's next piece of comic relief will include a vow to seek the leadership of the Conservative Party of Canada.In a brilliant political move, the one-man Conservative wrecking ball intends to travel across Canada during his summer break from "Monday Report" and tour the BBQ circuit to drum up support for his bid to topple the CPC's embattled leader.

Mercer's cross country trek is set to start next month in the Yukon, while the BBQ weather is favourable. The journey is set to end sometime in August in Mercer's home province of Newfoundland and Labrador.

"Talking to Conservatives" a special "Report" is tentatively set to air on the CBC sometime in October or November, later this year.

"Do you think it's funny? You're paying for it!" says Mercer-nary.

Is it just me or does anyone else find it strange that the Liberals, in control of the country and the MSM, have to have a site called the Liberal "underground"? Maybe it was really set up by Conservatives, to make the Liberals look stupid. I mean, they can't really be that stupid, can they?

Update - Here is the Liberal Underground response

Now now, don't forget Mercer is gay. If you were to throw an egg at him it would be considered a hate crime and you would be subject to some heavy prison time.

Hey, I wonder if mercer-nary has thought about that. Is criticizing a gay person considered hate speech?

WOW!! Rick Mercer will become Bananadas own Michael Moore. We will have to have placards with Moores and then Mercers head with the caption "MORON MERCER".
Newfoundlanders are fond of talking fish and in their own Rick Mercer you can see a BLOWFISH FULL OF CARP!

If this is true about Rick Mercer, you have to admit it is funny in a truly Canadian way. HEck I would think it was funny if Lord Black tried to run for the Liberal leadership.

Mercer should run as leader of the liberals as Martin doesn't cut it.
