Previously, both our Prime Minister and our Premier have looked like old men. Actually, they look like my Grandpa (Without his teeth. Just before he died.) Both leaders were ineffectual and likely senile, but they looked like they had been somewhere.
Now? As a nation, we voted for the guy with the best hair. He's photogenic, charismatic and
As a province, we have just elected the guy most likely to wear white sheets in his off time. He has a secret agenda which he curbs because the public would lynch him if they really knew. He tries to play the good ol' country boy and family man. Then he takes his private jet to the Grey Cup. You can see the wheels turning in his head when he speaks - I am sure that everything coming out of his mouth is intended to be a sound byte. And yet, our people love him.
Normally I am not political. Well, that's not true, but normally I don't talk about it. I just think that we have been too influenced by the pretty and charismatic and less worried about what these people actually stand for. That's all I am saying.
