Want to lead a political party in Canada?

Satirist Rick Mercer auctions off Liberal leadership kit on EBay

TORONTO (CP) - Since Liberals willing to run for the federal party's leadership appear to be rarer than three-headed rats, satirist Rick Mercer is auctioning off a Liberal leadership kit on EBay in the hopes of enticing someone - anyone - to take on the job.

"The leadership of the Liberal Party of Canada is not the prize that it once was," Mercer said Tuesday night on his CBC show Rick Mercer Report.

Ashley MacIsaac says he's no bad boy

The controversial fiddler insisted Tuesday his desire to run for the leadership of the federal Liberal party is not just another one of his outlandish stunts.

''I know that I've courted a lot of press in the past for situations in my entertainment life,'' said 31-year-old MacIsaac in an interview.

''I have for many years relied upon the sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll image to sell (concert) tickets. That's not what I plan on doing to sell my particular platform of what I think the Liberals need to do to move forward.''

In no time, he was making headlines for his eccentric behaviour, which included flashing his genitals when his kilt flipped up during a 1997 appearance on a late-night U.S. talk show. He once told an interviewer that he enjoyed urinating on sexual partners; to another he said he wanted to be ''weirder than Michael Jackson.''
