Election Fever! Liberal Collapse Edition

In my little resort town the yahoos are drinking hard and yelling now that it is too dark to run the jet skis – but with a full moon rising that may not last.

The idea that we are only a day or two away from the thrills and chills of a long writ and a Fall election has yet to make the rounds at Timmy’s and, even after it is called, it will be a week or two before this solidly NDP neck of the woods pays much attention.

    The media has already declared French citizen Mulcair the winner. Our role now as voters is simply to do what we are told and vote NDP.

    • Justin St.Denis

      Hilarious, isn’t it?

    • They’re tryin;)

      • David Murrell

        Funny how the media cartel never mention Mulcair’s French citizenship. Funny, that.

  • Justin St.Denis

    I somehow doubt that the NDP will pick up that much of the Liberal vote, and suspect that the crazoid Greens will benefit more than Jay Currie predicts. Why? Mulcair. Specifically, Mulcair and women.

    Women do not like Thomas Mulcair. It is my understanding that many find him threatening, inflexible and more than a little scary. Which means Mulcair does not set lady parts alight, which bodes badly for the party since so many women vote with their lady parts and not their lady smarts.

    I also remember reading in some political analysis about the importance of “image” that the full beard is a deal breaker politically. Something about beards turns many contemporary voters off, especially women.

    Beards really fly in communist revolutionary regimes, though!

    And maybe that’s the problem…….

      Harper looks like a teddybear compared to Muckyhair. Plus, Harper can sing, play keyboards and dance which is important for lots of women. lol

        and, most importantly, Harper (most of the time) proved that he can lead the country and steer us from, at least, financial woes of the rest of the world.

        • Linda1000

          This will be Harper’s 4th and last term so I really hope he actually pushes the envelope for some radical reforms on issues like immigration, Muslim terrorism, justice system, defund CBC, abolish HRCs, boost oil pipelines, etc. Even if he just tackles the most important issue of immigration reform, I would be happy.

            He is my favourite CANADIAN. Hopefully, he will push the conservative side and end these games. Immigratiion, etc. and the best would be to roll over and stand with the pipelines without worrying about the left. Independence from the MUSLIMS.

      You may have a point on the beard thing…I am currently sporting a wonderfully full, delightfully white beard…my lovely wife just bought a bag of disposable razors and told me to “get to it”. Apparently the good things in life will not be flowing in my direction until my rugged chin reappears.

      • Surele Surele

        I tend to agree with your wife.
