There is a federal election looming over the Canadian people and the usual political shenanigans have ensued. Although politicians on both sides of the border pull the same crap every election season, people are beginning to tire of the routine.
I know The Hook is.
Personally, I’d rather see politicians actually hurl mud at each other, perhaps in a pit, than hurl the same slings and arrows in the public arena. I know most Americans would be down with the concept if Sarah Palin was signed up.
But seriously why don’t politicians just come out and say something like “My opponent is an alcoholic, Satan-worshiping, philanderer AND a cannibal!” At least the direct approach would prove refreshing. Even my twelve-year-old can see the flaw in the political machine.
Have these politicians actually considered the future and the fact she’ll be too disillusioned to vote when the time comes? Because that’s what’s happened to her old man.
And most of North America for that matter.
You know what? I can’t speak for the everyone, but this political stuff is pretty dry for The Hook’s taste. Here’s a non-partisan image everyone can agree on.
If “actresses” like Bree Olson “manned the polls” during the next round of elections, voter turnout would be record-setting!
Think about it.
