If I had $90,000, I'd be rich? Well, no, not really, but I just might be Sen. Mike Duffy. Twitter users, inspired by the generous gift that Prime Minister Stephen Harper's chief of staff Nigel Wright gave to Duffy, created the #IfIhad90000 meme.

The hashtag is, of course, inspired by the well-known Barenaked Ladies song "If I Had $1,000,000." The meme dredges up Tory political scandals and missteps: everything from the Economic Action Plan ads to F-35s to the fake lake at the G20.

The meme was likely started by Green Party deputy leader Kevin O'Donnell, who tweeted this out on Wednesday afternoon.
