The NDP to Hire The Riddler?

With just two more Question Periods remaining in this session, the NDP are breathing a sigh of relief that their lame standing in the House is almost over.
"We are so totally out of good questions," a nervous NDP staffer confessed. "I mean, every day is like a test for which we have not studied and are just picking "C" on the multiple choice! We're so screwed."
As this intrepid Poly reported some weeks ago, NDP Leader Carole James offered a caucus position to Vancouver Sun political reporter and drag car racer, Vaughn Palmer, since "the NDP's questions during Question Period...[are] really just our fine Dippers reading lines from Palmer's writings."
This really leads to the question of "does the Pew Nemocratic Darty have a plan to handle the next Question Period in the coming session?"
"You bet your feathered head we do!", our Dipper contact exclaimed. "To help us with Question Period in the Fall, we have hired...The Riddler."
What?! The Riddler from Batman fame? This just does not seem like a good move.
"This is a great move!", our source cooed. "Now this guy can ask questions...I mean, he IS the Riddler! We were going to get the original Riddler, Frank Gorshin, but we discovered he died a year ago today and since we already carry enough dead wood...*cough* Gregor Robertson *cough*...we went with the 1990's Riddler version 'cause we did a lot of sweet things that decade."
You mean like the Fudge-It-Budget? Or Adrian Dix's fake memos? Or perhaps Casino Gate?
"Yep...those were the last times we had awesome original ideas! So with The Riddler coming aboard how can we lose?!"
However, all is not well. We received an email from the Riddler earlier this morning saying, "I am not joining the NDP. I may be criminally insane but I'm not stupid."

The N-DiPpers need Gregor to come to the rescue. We know his personality is hiding in there somewhere

The intrepid Poly should be commended. The NDP isn't god's gift to political parties. When I read the blogs around, I don't see the dirt and follies of the NDP mentioned (ie. Public Eye). At least the Poly uses humour to get the message out there.

Way to go Poly!

A friend pointed out an interesting contradiction when it comes to the NDP's effectiveness as a opposition.

One week Vaugh and Keith are tell BCers that the NDP aren't an effective opposition. The next week, they are telling us it's good to have an effective opposition to hold the government to account.

My question...which is it?

Riddle me this! Why would any intelligently-minded person in BC ever vote for the NDP? Masochism perhaps?

I am also wondering how you got my e-mail address as well. I never signed up for this.

The NDP have a long rapsheet of "crimes" against the people of BC. So why are they still out there roaming the streets of Victoria like a band of super-villians on the loose in Gotham City?

Does anyone have Commissioner Gordon's cell phone number?

Oh it reminds of the good old days when Bob Williams, Bill King, Dennis Cooke, and I would simply stand up in the house and make things up on the fly. Hell you could always count on Bob Williams to slander someone different everyday.
