Truth is, Yabba-Dabba-Doug made too many enemies along the way to becoming Grand Poobah. The Elliot, Mulroney and Granic Allen factions will be stalking his faux-populist ass starting today. And with Yabba having been a grasping, egomanical lout going to back his mullet days they’ll have plenty to work with. Bet he doesn’t last more than a year.
What? Deprive Frank of satirical fodder and readers of merriment? In any case, with respect, wishful thinking OJM.
Unrealistic thinking perhaps, reym, but not wishful. What I’m wishing for is that he manages to hang in for four years and goes full Mussolini by the end…cartoon-General uniform, tough-guy posturing, the whole il Duce kit…when I’m compelled to pay an absurd buffoon’s salary I expect my money’s worth.
Well, Italy with the current Liga-M5S coalition is doing a good remodel of the old Mussolini socialist, then fascist, then dictatorship line.
Mussolini was in 1912 in the PSI (Parti socialista Italiano), being expelled, and forming the Partito Nazionale Fascista on revolutionary nationalism transcending class lines in 1921.
Mussolini’s views were coloured by his reading of such authors as Georges Sorel, the Italian Futurist Filippo Tommaso Marinetti, French Socialist Gustave Hervé, Italian anarchist Errico Malatesta and German philosophers Friedrich Engels and Karl Marx. He was a supporter of the legacy of nationalist socialists in Italy’s history, such as Giuseppe Garibaldi, Giuseppe Mazzini, and Carlo Pisacane.
Dougaloo Ford doesn’t read, like his admirer in Berlin, Herr Donald Trump, but that doesn’t matter as his whole family helps him with big words.
Rather than the blue, ash-covered suit you show in the picture above, we expect him to dress up in militaristic ex-Fantino suits lying in the closet. Though the Giuliano Zaccardelli, COM RCMP glitter might be a better model.
