We have never had a sadder federal election. The incumbent Conservative Party has used a racist, race-baiting strategy we normally associate with other places. The racism that has been whipped up will take a very long time to dissolve. A full of the population, or nearly a third, have proven themselves to be idiots, racists or more likely both. When I hear them bleating about “taxes” as the reason to vote for the party, whose economic failures are now historic, all I hear is “I’m racist.”
But on a lighter note there was this collision of two different scandals and an angry old man who attends Conservative events. His name is Earl but now just know him as Angry Con after he berated journalists asking about the Mike Duffy scandal (to do with lying about perqs and a govt cover up) by saying to them “Like you’ve never cheated on your taxes.” Meanwhile, some old footage turns up of a contractor now running for Member of Parliament (M.P. or in this case M. Pee) for the Conservatives in Toronto. He had been part of a CBC show involving a hidden camera taping contractors at work in people’s houses and exposing wrongdoing. While the client was in the next room, the contractor was caught peeing into a mug in the kitchen, half rinsing it and putting it in the sink. He of course had to withdraw from the election race. So here we are. A bit complicated to explain all this to non-Canadians but I wanted this enshrined here forever. #PeeGate
