The Conservatives seem to have developed a small cottage industry in the distribution of anti-Rae material at this convention. The buttons just keep on surfacing:
"Go for Bob. Go for Broke!" says one.
"Call me Bob. Let's not talk about my past," says another.
And the one everyone wants as a souvenir? A button showing a photo of Rae and comedian Rick Mercer, leaping naked from a dock in that now-famous episode from CBC's Mercer Report. The Tories have emblazoned this logo on the button: "Is this the tush of a prime minister?"
Of course this does beg the question: What does constitute a prime ministerial behind?
On second thought, perhaps it's best not to think about that too much.
