It's hard to believe it's only been two years since that nightmare night.
Two years to the day since Stephen Harper finally got his precious majority.
And our precious Canada began to wither and die, as if choked by some monstrous weed.
Or ravaged by an invasion of alien apes from some barbarous planet in the bowels of the universe.
Mercifully, I can't remember much about that nightmare night. Except for the little pieces of paper raining down on him, and the crazed look in his eyes.
As it slowly dawned on him that he HAD fooled those suckers, he WAS going to be able to screw Canada beyond recognition, and NOBODY could stop him now.
Due to the shock, and the booze, I was unable to write anything for a few hours eh? And when I finally managed to crawl to my computer all I could write was this.
It's not much, but it does give you an idea of how I felt that night...
But of course I didn't leave. And no, the Cons aren't Nazis. Just a shabby gang of right-wing ideologues and religious fanatics, with a depraved leader who would do or say anything to cling to power. So he can sing his version of Tomorrow Belongs to ME.
But they are the worst and most sinister government this country has ever known. They are bullies. They are political pornographers. They are debasing our democracy. And they are shaming us in the eyes of the world.
So why do I feel so much better today, than I felt on that horrible night two years ago?
Because in the process of diminishing our country, the Cons have also diminished themselves.
And so has Stephen Harper...
The alien apes are still our monstrous masters, but they are so much less than they once were.
And two other stories in the news today serve to show how far they have fallen:
A new poll suggests even their base is shrinking.
The latest Canadian Press Harris-Decima survey suggests the Liberal party jumped into a seven-point lead over the Conservatives over the two weeks that followed Trudeau's landslide leadership victory last month.Liberal support stood at 35 per cent, while the Conservatives dropped to 28 and the NDP to 22. The Green party was at seven per cent.
And the Sun TV News gang says no mandatory
Sun News Network made its final pitch to the federal telecommunications regulator on Thursday, saying anything short of a guaranteed spot on the dial would spell the end of the channel.
Sun News executive Kory Teneycke says a must-offer licence isn't good enough... "Let me repeat: a 'must-offer' licence would be a death sentence."
Which clearly shows that not only are the Cons hugely unpopular, nobody but NOBODY wants to buy their garbage ideology.
Or Teneycke's stinky fish...
So much for Fox News North. So much for Great Ugly Leader's Thousand Year Majority. So much for the Con Age.
Which at the end of the day leaves me humming my new favourite song eh?
Tomorrow Belongs To Us.
Still dreaming of a united left.
And still asking myself that haunting question.
From what ghastly planet DID Harper come from?
Does our Caesar understand that he can't intimidate all of us?
And of course, won't it be a BEAUTIFUL day when the nightmare is finally over?
The Cons are back in their cages.
And Canada is safe again...
