Tattered Sleeve: Justin Calling

Justin Calling to Albertan towns

Now get prepared for the writ to come down

Justin Calling to the oilsands

Forget about Pierre and his Energy plans

Justin Calling, now look here to us

The new Trudeaumania is on the up’n’up

Mulcair isn’t catching

Harper’s on the way out

The Cons are corrupted

The Greens got no clout

A BQ error, leaves the left in the clear

And Justin is calling and I’ll…

Go for the winner!

Justin calling, yes, I was there, too

An’ you know what they said? Well, some of it was true!

Justin calling to the gun registry arm

Forget it brother, that’s a horse that’s long gone!

Justin calling to the zombies of Ignatieff

Quit bitchin’ bout, those (true) ads all negative

Justin calling, and I don’t want to flout

But while you were sulking, I glad-handed about

Justin calling, see we ain’t getting high

But there’s taxes to be raised from making it legalized

Mulcair just ain’t catching

Harper’s on the way out

The Cons are corrupted

The Greens got no clout

A BQ error, leaves the left in the clear

And Justin is calling and I’ll…

Go for the winner!

Justin calling, yes, I got swept up too

And you know what they said? Sacha’s onboard too!

Justin calling through the Mop & Pail bile

After all this, won’t you give me a smile?

Justin calling

I never hoped so much, so much so much!

Red Tory v.3.0.3: Survey Says…?

A recent bullshit survey by Nanos Research asked a thousand or so random people online to describe the “personality” of the five federal parties using a single word.

Just for fun, let’s pretend this ridiculous poll is meaningful in some way and compare the primary responses given, shall we?

Conservatives were described most . . . → Read More: Red Tory v.3.0.3: Survey Says…?

Topp is the wrong choice for NDP leader

Almost as soon as Brian Topp announced his candidacy for leader of the federal NDP, he stepped into the Conservative trap regarding electoral re-distribution.

Polygonic: If this isn’t bittersweet…

It was the best of times, it was the worst of times – welcome to Dickensian Canada. The best of times, in some ways – a social democratic party’s never had a bigger share of the Parliamentary pie. And Quebec sovereigntists have never had less. The worst of times, clearly, in that years of fear-mongering […] . . . → Read More: Polygonic: If this isn’t bittersweet…
