Dippers Say The Darndest Things

On Sunday the NDP will have their first leadership debate, which may or may not produce the next hot sound clip for the next election. Today's poll question; which NDP leadership candidate will produce the most "memorable" quote in the leader's debates? Memorable in the same way that Ignatieff's "we didn't get it done" knocked Stephane Dion off the rails once upon a time.

There are 9 names to choose from:

1) Brian Topp: most likely to screw up on a stage in front of the cameras.

2) Paul Dewar: plays the self-righteous blowhard better than anybody.

3) Tom Mulcair: I'd love for Tom to tell us what he really thinks about international terrorism. The most gaffe prone in the field.

4) Peggy Nash: She's likely to make the most in spending promises.

5) Niki Ashton: I don't know anything about this person.

6) Romeo Saganash: I don't know anything about this person.

7) Martin Singh: I don't know anything about this person.

8) Robert Chisholm: I don't know anything about this person.

9) Nathan Cullen: Least likely to make a gaffe. He's a savvy media guy.


  1. I don't know anything about Martin Singh either except that he follows me on twitter. I do not follow back.

  2. Mulcair anti-union vs Nash pro-union

    Cullen crushed under pro-gun registry gang up
    (Ashton flip flop)

    First group elimination will be : French speaking skills

    Winner must be best candidate for Quebec... or else!!!

  3. Dippers will likely go word for word from the Campaign 2000 - ending child poverty.

    The 2011 report is out, child poverty dropped to 9.5%
    As the chart shows, highest child poverty years were during the Chretien/Martin era, when Dippers had some stroke and were making deals with Libs, but economics dictated policy, not poverty...

    Most significant drop is since PMSH has been governing, with the lowest child poverty rate in low income families.
    (Most poverty is experienced by immigrants.)

    But you won't hear that at a Dipper gabfest,
    no, it will be same as focus in the report... the rich are getting richer

  4. Niki Ashton has about as much depth as a kid's wading pool. Her father is one of the architects of Manitoba's continuing downfall.
