Ever wondered what happens when you get three speechwriters from three different parties in a room together? (Pretend for a moment that the answer is “Gosh, yes.”)

CBC Radio’s smashing morning show The Current did just that today, with yours truly holding up the NDP end.

I liked the other two folks. We were all a little guarded in our responses to some of Anna Maria’s questions; answering “What’s the best line you’ve ever written?” raises certain professional issues, after all. (Esprit d’escalier: My favourite line should have been “It’s a pleasure to be with you today.” I could have claimed ownership of that sucker and demanded royalties.)

Hear for yourself what transpired here.
