Like most things in politics the politicians make official what everyone already knew. Leadership, the Canadian way. Safely. From behind.
The election has been called. BIG surprise. They’ve been out humping the stumps (or whatever they call it) for some time now. As usual, Harper comes late to the party like the dilettante he is to make it official.
Oh well, at least it’s on.
I won’t bore any of you with any more political rants aimed at influencing your vote. You know how I feel. But I will point out a few things of interest. The ‘debates’. Those ‘staged’, boring, play-it-safe, talking heads rigmarole that supposedly show our leaders ‘as they are’ are a sham. You’ll only see something by mistake or else the political panderers will explain to you what you missed. Shock and awe? Very unlikely. Brilliance? Impossible. Coal does not shine.
Firstly, Harper is playing it coy. Like he’s ‘above’ that sort of thing. Talking to others, I guess. He won’t commit to any debates except one and Elizabeth May is NOT included. Incredible. Secondly, Mulcair won’t commit if Harper doesn’t. Presumably he doesn’t want to waste his time debating the rabble either….hmmmm….very Harper-like, if you ask me. They must both think they are above.
But here’s the point I want to make. I don’t care. I really don’t care. I DON’T CARE what these dickheads do or say during the election! They talk gibberish 99% of the time anyway. Poli-speak. Party-line. Anything but REAL. They are liars and hypocrites and they don’t know how to lead themselves out of an outhouse on fire (possible exception: E. May, who, like the Japanese say, “When drunk, the real person showed up.”
If Liz gets drunk, then I’ll listen.
Harper is going to give us back some of our own money in an attempt to buy our vote and many people with go for that. Incredibly pathetic on our part. Mulcair will not say one thing that smacks of reform, change or social conscience lest he be branded a ‘commie’ and Trudeau will either speak pablum or put his foot in his mouth and start sucking like the idiot-child he is. How do I know that? Because that is what they have been doing for some time now. Do you think Just-in is going to grow up right before your eyes? Think Mulcair is going to risk his slight edge in the polls? And Steve has money. Do you think a Con won’t spend money to win? Ask Mike Duffy. Harper knows how to use it (not for the betterment of Canada) and he will (for the advancement of Harper).
The game is afoot but, like all Canadian politics, it’s a club foot and the lame shall prevail.
