It seems that the Liberals have come up with a new innovation in including the political grassroots; allowing the dead to become members. This idea, from one of the Liberal Leadership Race's frontrunners, Joe Volpe (Who, with the endorsement of Alphonso Gagliano, is unstoppable), is so great for a few reasons:
- There are more dead people in existence than live ones.
- Some of the greatest political talents are dead.
- The dead tend not to demand much in the way of election promises.
But wait! Why should the Liberals hog the dead? The NDP and Conservatives should hop on the bandwagon too.
For the NDP, they should dig up Tommy Douglas from the grave. I mean, the members of the NDP basically worship this guy as a hero right now anyways, and even Liberals quote the guy sometimes, so by bring him back, we can form a majority government easily. Right now!
For the Conservatives, I don't want to give any ideas, but maybe they can bring back John Diefenbaker. That would result in getting all of the moderate "Red Tories" that are in the Liberal Party to come back home to the Conservative Party, thus increasing its vote share.
My, the Liberals will eventually live (die?) to regret coming up with this idea. After all, NDP and Conservative dead can beat their dead any day.
