When Everyone Hated Bob Rae And Wil Wheaton

Wil Wheaton became the first member of Twitter to get 500 000 followers.

In 1993, when the Toronto Blue Jays won the World Series, then Ontario premiere Bob Rae was in attendance and got booed by everyone.

Rae had become the first and only NDP leader of Ontario: The 1990 election saw the Peterson Liberals defeated and the unions getting their man in.

But once in office Rae didn’t act like a socialist.

A new, ‘Social Contract,’ ‘Rae Days,’ and generous welfare payments made him unpopular with many.

Infact, if you were in high school in 1993 and you hit Bob Rae in the face with a snowball your teachers would buy you beer. He was that unpopular with public servants.

But 20 years later Rae would be the leader of the federal Liberal Party and all was forgotten.

When Wil Wheaton attained 500 000 followers many of those fans had hated him when they had been younger.

One thing about me is that I’m no ordinary blogger.

I’m really an android that was built on the secret Nazi base in Antarctica and sent here to drive Warren Kinsella crazy.

One of the things I’ve noticed about you humanoids is that you’re fickle.

Very, very fickle.

One day you want the SS to come and put Bob Rae and Wil Wheaton in boxcars heading for eastern Poland. The next you actually like them.

You people like Bob Rae and Wil Wheaton.
