Ashley for Prime Minister??

The news this morning reports that Canadian musician Ashley MacIsaac is throwing his hat into the race for the leadership of the Liberal Party of Canada. Now this is no ordinary guy. He's quite a bizarre personality, known for his wild fiddle playing style, which combines grunge, punk, hip hop, metal, and traditional folk! Not only that, he's also gay and stories of his drug use are common. He has this interesting tendancy to do something crazy just before he releases his newest CD. Take this for example: Ashley MacIsaac seeks partner for Alberta wedding, where he announces that he wants to hold Alberta's largest gay wedding.
A little bit of Ashley will go a long way in the upcoming race!

A gay junkie? Why not? It worked for Andre Boisclaire, didn't it?

Right now I feel like singing:

Oh, Kanadaaaaaaaaaaaa

Ashley.... when I was in the maritimes.. back in 1996 he was on fire.. But he literally pissed his mainstream appeal away-- peeing on stage and claiming that he liked to pee on his men friends... Quite the fella.

Well, it would certainly add a bit of flare to our dull Canadian politics arena... Thanks for ading me to your blogroll! I'll be doing the same. Great blog!

Hockeyman:MOst politicians do the same to the country- at least Ashley would be upfront and honest about it-- and admit he enjoys it!

But he really is a talented musician!

That is so cynical... but I suppose its to be expected from one living in the land of SB. Changes parties, changes teams, gets easily re- elected...


I agree ashley is extremely talented. The peeing incident was really bad for music in the maritimes at the time. As radio stations bailed on him----We had to go back to hearing the screech of the rankins fifty times a day....
