Election 2008: Dumpster Diving
Fuck. I'm off to vote for some stupid bastards now. For the record, I detest this election. I don't recall a time when I thought less of the political choices being offered the Canadian citizenry. The Cons and the Libs are both inept, right of centre jerk offs that deserve a good trouncing. Certainly Harper and his team of juvenile sycophants are further to the right but the Liberals utterly spineless behaviour during the last parliament is hardly an attractive calling card. Still, compared to the endless campaign of nose picking and fart noises carried out by the Cons, they are marginally less disgusting. The NDP under Layton are a sad spectacle of begging and pleading to get a shot at being in second place. Here's a message for you Jack, Obama is an empty suit with a pleasant voice. He's a roll over candidate that gives away any progressive credibility or cause the moment a contentious vote arises. And you Jack, are no Obama. Liz May gets full points for nettling big Steve during the debates. I hope the Greens get a seat or two for no better reason than to bug Harper, beyond that meh. I do wish the Bloc were running nationally, as Duceppe is the only leader I have a lick of respect for.
Fuck the election. Fuck Harper for calling an unnecessary election. And fuck all of the parties for fielding such a knee deep shit swamp of choices.
