Tim Hudak

Ontario Conservative Leader who blew a 15 percentage point lead in the 2011 Ontario provincial election by doing impersonations of Ronald Reagan over Green energy policy—the one plank in the incumbent Liberal platform the public was behind—and by doggedly staying on message throughout the campaign even though the only message his brain-trust could come up with was “elect me”.  Purportedly a nice guy in private, Hudak, who physically resembles Mr. Bean more than Ronald Reagan, managed to look rigid and over-eager at the same time, and couldn’t quite hide the fact that he had much-loathed ex-premier Mike Harris in his back pocket.
