Iggy In Charge
So. Liberals I hope you're happy. I know... some of you are positively giddy, after all, your guy didn't have to face any of those pesky questions that always seem to be full of problems. And your guy didn't have to try and convince the electorate or the party membership that his more hawkish comments and defence of "enhanced interrogation" were just passing phases. Way to go! No process, no problem, just straight to the coronation. Why, nobody needs to hear all that stuff about policy or approaches to some of the more pressing problems of the day, nope. Just install the new unit and you're good to go. Choice, that's for girls and shit. The new and improved Liberals are ready! They've swung their act to the right where they can be assured that the centre right Canadian voter dwells and they must be, what, 38% of the voting population and it isn't like they're already voting for someone. Thank heavens there's a new option for the Harper voter, another stilted ego freak that will work like a dickens to alienate Quebec. After the drubbing that poor Stepahane took just for being an academic goober, it must be a relief to the party faithful knowing that there's nothing in the new leader's past that can be used against him by the shit slinging marksmen of the Harper mob. Is it too late to start a draft Gilles movement?
