Convention Names

Calgary Grit is not happy with the "Seinfeld Convention" label for the upcoming snoozefest in Vancouver. I tend to agree with him that if the convention was going to be as interesting as an episode of Seinfeld, nobody would be complaining. So, without further ado suggestions for alternate names for the leadership convention:
  • The United Nations Convention: The resolutions don't mean anything and the leadership race was determined in the backroom.
  • The Godfather II Convention: I don't mean to imply that the convention will be anything like this classic film in terms of being compelling to watch. However, it is a similar cast of characters to the last one. This one promises more family history (have you bought your copy of Iggy's new book yet?).
  • The Wizard of Oz Convention: Pay no attention to the excessive drinking and internal squabbling behind the curtain.
  • The Welcome Back Kotter Convention: Yes, the teacher's back to try to help the people back home. Hilarity will undoubtedly ensue.
  • The Revenge of the Nerds Convention: Res ipsa loquitur.
  • Lament For A Political Theatre: By George Grant's nephew no less.
  • The Potemkin Convention: It looks so real!
  • The Empire Strikes Back Convention: Apparently Darth Vader plays bass in a punk band in this one.
Any other thoughts?
