Marois: splitting the sovereignist vote and flipping the bird


Graham Hughes , THE CANADIAN PRESS

Watching the pro-sovereignist parties duke it out is like watching two scorpions in a bottle. The only good thing would be a split of the sovereignist vote that may allow a non-sovereignist party to slip in!

But the real issue with this The Gazette story is the photograph. Several years ago Gilles Duceppe, then leader of the Bloc Québécois, was photographed during an election campaign wearing a shower cap-like hat while touring a factory. The photo went viral and he became the butt of numerous jokes and editorial cartoons.  Does the same fate await Pauline Marois who appears to be giving the finger, twice in fact, to someone?

If it has the same effect on Marois that the shower cap had on Duceppe I say keep flipping those birds Pauline!!!
