Oh boy. I don't know about you eh? But I'm feeling a little flat lately. Maybe it's the weather. But the Canadian political scene has never seemed so bleak and depressing.
So I'm glad to know I'm not alone.
In a way, he's putting words to a vague sense that I've heard expressed in other quarters in Ottawa too -- from all political stripes. It's a feeling that something is missing -- some say it's purpose, some say it's joy.
And now that I think about it, who can blame us?
When we're living in Harper Land. Winter is coming. Iggy is our best hope. And the Prime Minister is a maniac.
Everybody talks about the anger inside Stephen Harper, and wonder where it came from. So we talked about that and I was surprised that it wasn’t just the word anger they used, it was the word hatred.
When your feelings run so deep, not just anger but hate, that’s going to lead you to some very strange acts and it will lead to a system of control that both benefits you and in which you overreach and get into deep trouble.
Golly. What a disturbing thought. Who knew eh?
Yikes. I mean press that emergency button !!!!!
But seriously.... here's the thing. I can't exist in a state of joylessness. And I hate to see my progressive friends looking so glum. So try to be like me and look at things on the bright side.
One....it could be worse. Those who are condemned to live in Ottawa, could be living in Ottumwa.
Two...Iggy is promising to try to keep young people out of jail and make it easier for us to get jiggy.
So that's at least ONE good reason to vote for him.
And three... if you thought that campaigning against Stephen Harper was going to be satisfying when he was still a mystery monster.
Imagine how joyful it's going to be now that we REALLY know him...
May I suggest the following campaign slogans? He's angry. He's weird. He's mentally unstable, possibly dangerous. From what we can see he's clearly suffering from Liberal Bowel Syndrome. But what else is he hiding under all that remaining pastry? Because we're really HUNGRY !!!!!
Now isn't that a
The Puff Man is getting eaten. Iggy is getting with it. The election is coming.
Fasten your seatbelts everybody. And keep smiling.
We're off to a happy place !!!!
