Pretty sure they said the same after electing Scheer and O'Toole.
Antony Furey is a Conservative fart-catcher and alt-right propagandist... was he going to cough up anything else? Pierre "Skippy" is a known quantity: a hateful little man who makes Jordan Peterson look cerebral. The fact that he was anointed as the #CPC leader only demonstrate how low Canadian politics has sunk. Hate is all that Cons have ever offered and their record in Gov is terrible. Yet, here we are...
That's the one thing I wonder about. All ideology aside, in an election, how well can this little bastard do? I mean, George W. Bush sort-of won his first election based on being "someone you could have a beer with". Harper managed to win some because although he had almost negative charisma, he gave off an aura of competence (whether justified or not). Even Trump . . . OK, he's a horrible person, but there's a bizarre sort of charisma there, an invulnerable self-assurance, a swaggering bluster that epitomizes a popular version of American-ness.But Poilievre is a nasty, whiny little creep who clearly doesn't understand the economy, even in the Conservative sense of that phrase. He has no charisma. He has no feeling of competence, and plenty track record to show the reverse. Nobody would want to have a beer with him. Is relentless screeching really going to be enough to get the broader Canadian electorate on side with him on the campaign trail?
Tonight marks the beginning of the end of Justin Trudeau's time as PM.Why? Is Chrystia Freeland taking over for him soon?
