A Rand Holmes comic from the Vancouver Star of the 1970s, published May 26, 1977. The caption reads:
It’s quite a unique concept Smedley…but somehow I feel the agency had a more subtle approach in mind.
When I saw this comic recently, I was struck by a certain similarity to a news story seen earlier this year. I’m speaking of course of Danielle Smith’s Wildrose party campaign bus, which attracted quite a buzz on the Internets. Danielle tweeted on March 19, 2012:
Glad to see everyone is so interested in our bus. ;) Guess we’ll have to make a couple of changes huh? #wrp #ableg #abvote
Despite this National Post article receiving an inordinate number of likes on Facebook, the Wildrose party did not win the election.
