Jack Layton sweats holy water


 

Someone should start a business that offers, for a decent fee, to round up your loved ones and assemble a series of testimonials to your greatness set to uplifting music and interspersed with video of you doing whatever it is you do each day. Sort of like a living eulogy.

Jack Layton sweats holy water

  1. Good grief – he's copying Harper – and what's with the "blue" – in this video and the blue shirt he's been wearing everywhere lately?

    Pathetic.

    • The "blue" was there for the convention because the colours of the Nova Scotia NDP are blue and orange… it was an hommage to them

  2. Granted it's inane, but isn't it at least a cut above the other parties' modus operandi of setting opposing leader nasty images to scary music?

    • Think about it. Blue is the color of "Democrats"

  4. The tribute video won me over. All those nice people think that Jack's the most wonderful thing since sliced bread, and they can't all be wrong, can they? I'm voting NDP in the next election.

      • The NewT Party????

        • You are on a roll today, Dot!

      • Onward and upward, comrade! I'm going to grab all my Billy Bragg CDs and drive up to Edmonton to volunteer my services to Linda Duncan. Something tell's me it's going to be a real squeaker next time, and she's going to need all the help she can get.

        • If you want to fit in, it's brothers and sisters, not comrades.

          • Please be more politically correct in the future (we're courting the youth vote):

            Pollywogs, and tadpoles.

  5. Nobody translating for the hearing handicapped? They should have gotten Garrett Morris.

    • Lol!!!

  6. "He finds a way to make the impossible possible"

    Huh?

  7. I'll always remember being at the bar at the Sharaton Hotel in Toronto.

    There had just been a pro-coalition rally across the street and Jack Layton came in for a drink before addressing the CAW convention. The bar gave out these tasty bowls of assorted nuts and Jack wanted some, so in his usual non-bashful way was requesting a bowl in a very animated fashion. I eventually got the bar tender's attention and got one and handed it to Jack.

    Because of that I can now always say that I handed Jack Layton his nuts!

    Thank you. Thank you. I'm here all week.
