Ever wonder about that Mr. Dithers, Dagwood's boss in that blondie Comic Strip? Ever wonder if Paul Martin resembled that character at all?
Apparently Judy Mcload been's thinking about it too.
Dour and cranky, Dithers of the comic strip could never quite make up his mind, not knowing whether to fire the bumbling Bumstead or to give him a raise in pay.
Although the original Mr. Dithers may never have known it, he was a Class A Liberal.
In the 1950s when the original Mr. Dithers was popular, people made fun of him. These were the days when the politically correct had not reached cult status. People who could never make up their own minds always got on our nerves.
Does sound a lot like the Paul Martin we love to laugh at.
