According to a front page story in today's Globe and Mail (and I'm sorry I don't have it in front of me anymore), Don Cherry has had discussions with the Conservative Party of Canada about running as a candidate in the soon-to-be-called federal election. While the story says that at this point it appears unlikely that Cherry will run, it does present an interesting possibility.

On one hand, if he ran in the right riding I certainly think Cherry could win. I would argue he'd have more name recognition than any candidate he would run against amongst marginal voters, and would have a good shot if placed strategically. At the same time, the party would probably have to hire an extra PR/damage control guy just to follow Cherry around once he got elected. Would the pros outweigh the cons?

If Cherry ran in my riding (Kingston, ironically enough), I'd vote for him. But then, the CPC could run a dented can of tuna and I would vote for that over a Liberal candidate. Would my fellow Canadian W's cast a ballot for Grapes?

I'm all for it, just to piss off the ultra uptight Francophones even more. It would be very entertaining.

Maybe it'd bring more attention to all the great things Cherry does for charity and debunk many of the myths that he hates Europeans and the French.

If he's elected, I wouldn't put him on any committees that involve finance. Don's proven in the past he's not good with numbers (only 5 skaters on the ice Don, not 6.)

Don Cherry as an MP? I haven't laughed that hard in a while.

I've never voted anything other than Conservative in my life, but there's absolutely no way in hell I'd vote for that idiot.

Although it would be funny seeing him rise in Parliament and butcher virtually every last name in the place...moron.

I've never thought Cherry would be a Conservative, ie in the middle. Then again, this is the same guy who never liked certain changes in hockey (mandatory helmets, Europeans playing junior hockey in Canada, etc.) so maybe I'm wrong.
