The Latest stuff

Again, it's tough being a lazy blogger, but here's my thoughts of the latest politics...

Iggy's ads are okay. In fact, they're just the right amount of (false) hope that liberals can latch onto.

So speaking of Iggy ... Martin Couchon in, then not in, then in .... me sees a MAJOR rift in the Quebec wing of the Liberals.

And now, I say with great pleasure, that I now respect Stephane Dion more than ever. At least he had vision. At least he was bold with controversial plans. At least he had dual citizenship (not sure what that means, but just sayin'). At least his poll numbers were better. At least he could actually articulate what he was planning to do. But now, can't do that, can we?

Harper not floundering around the U.N. Seriously people. Canadian economics and Tim Hortons trumps anything else, except attending a hockey game. Could Iggy say the same? About the hockey... you know, being in the UK and at Harvard all the time. Does Harvard still have a team?

Speaking of team... Team Harper walking out on nut job Amagejdadad's ... or whatever you're called, at the U.N. Couldn't have been prouder to be Canadian.

And Qadaffi, Ghadaffi, or however you spell it, no one gives a shit about you... neither does most of us in Canada. Seriously. Take your tents (Trump, what were you thinking?), and go home.

I also think the demise of Iggy is the continuing direct result of his old roommate Bob Rae. Ask yourself this ... whom do you think has more influence, connections, and power in Ontario, let alone Toronto. Someone who's been premier and has deep connections with Powercorp, a corporation that has had a major influence on federal politics for decades, or someone who's lived OUTSIDE of the country for 34 years (or whatever the number is!) and wrote a bunch of books (oh don't get me started!)? Any misstep by Iggy .. methinks his "advisors" are actually not his.

I have no proof of any of this other than pure political instinct.

If you wanted to be PM, how would YOU go about it? There's only been ONE Liberal leader that didn't become PM.. Stephane Dion. Iggy? Really? So you think there'd be a three-peat? Hell no. Enter Bob Rae.

Ok, to much more important people. Afghanistan... to the Canadian soldiers there, some who I know... fight the good fight my friends. And it is a good fight. You ARE making a difference. You HAVE made a difference. You are ALL in our thoughts and prayers.. ALWAYS. Kick some ass!!! You ARE the best!!!
