A Pat on the Behind

I just heard on the news this morning that the Green Party is celebrating. According to a recent poll, 24% of Canadians would vote for the Green Party in the next election – if the environment were the only issue.

Consider this: The environment is the Green Party’s only platform. This is their specialty. It’s the only thing they do. And 76% of Canadians just told them that the Liberals, the NDP, and even the Conservatives do a better job on environmental policy than the Green Party.

Let’s say “hockey” was the only issue in the next election. Let’s say we got to elect the next General Manager at Hockey Canada. Let’s say Wayne Gretzky were running against Stephen Harper and Bob Rae. Let’s say that The Great One only got 24% of the votes. Would he consider that cause for celebration?

If I were in charge of the Green Party, I wouldn’t consider that a pat on the back – I’d take it as a spanking.
