Rough Ride For Bourque

Conservative news aggregater and part-time race-car driver Pierre Bourque has had a rough couple of weeks en-route to the Chicagoland Arca 200 in Joliette, Ill. It began with having a car stolen, continued with a spin-out in practice which totalled another(?)/the same(?) car:

The qualifying session was delayed for several minutes after Pierre Bourque spun in the No. 62 La Raza-ImpreMedia Chevrolet Monte Carlo. He was examined and released from the infield care center. The team has reverted to a back-up car and Bourque will start Saturday’s Chicagoland ARCA 200 in the 40th position, utilizing a provisional starting position.

...and ended with a dismal 25th place showing at the race itself.

As noted above, I don't know whether Bourque ever got his original stolen vehicle back. Witnesses to the act, however, reported that they had never seen the car driven so fast.

If you think that Bourque is a pathetic race car driver, you should have seen him when he ran for the Liberals in the riding of Rosemont in 1993.

Bourque had a phobia concerning public speaking and once escaped from a function so as not to give a speech.

The guy knew next to nothing about politics and policy, and chose to waste his time by going door to door without having anything to say.

At one point, a voter started following him and throwing glasses of water in his face.
