On January 21, 1992, then Ontario premier Bob Rae delivered an uninspiring speech on the economy that was shown live on television stations across Ontario. The next day, the Toronto Sun’s “What a Boob!” headline ran over a picture of Rae’s face inside a TV labelled Raevision with dials for Ideas, Leadership and Charisma set to Zip, Zero and Zilch, respectively, and drew more attention than the speech did. Unfortunately, since this predates the internet, I was unable to find a picture of said front page online. (Now I know how all those people searching “darrell sheets home invasion” feel.) On the plus side, I just spent the past hour looking at pictures of giant titties. Thanks, Google Image Search!
If I’m bringing this up now, it’s because today’s Sun front page makes their Cliff Olson front page (since removed by the image host) seem tame by comparison:
This would probably raise a pretty big stink if everybody didn’t hate McGuinty. Then again, Rae wasn’t all that well-liked (until he switched to the Liberals), either. I can’t be bothered to wade through the 600+ comments on the associated article, but I’m sure there are some good ones.
