It would seem that after sleepwalking his way through the first weeks of the campaign, the said leader awoke somewhat lethargically from his dormancy. Although still muttering ‘Stay the Course’ with almost the same regularity he did while unconscious, it is uttered somewhat less complacently now because he is probably worried that he may have to show an almost humanlike interest in certain matters which he would sooner wash his hands of and leave for other countries to sort out.
Even as diverse Canadians increasingly look to Ottawa for action, growing numbers elsewhere will continue to drown or die tragically in other ways while some sit on their hands. The government fumbled semi-mutely and waited in vain for a decision from its leader until some arcane numbers were finally invented to counter offers of aid made by rival leaders of the other federal parties. But for now most of the unfortunates in question will bravely continue to await the outcome of this political lottery before any of these promises of assistance can be redeemed or their vague targets reached. In all likelihood something positive will ultimately come out of it all, but it may not be the current government that does it. Meanwhile, the victims will just have to ‘stay the course’. There’s an election going on.
On a lighter note, at least we don’t live in a country that produces 'folliclely challenged' blowhard billionaires like that simian bozo south of the border who so loves to hear the sound of his own voice that he makes an ass of himself almost daily in the media. In what kind of society would a significant percentage of right-wing (or any other kind of voters) view the likes of him as acceptable for its highest office?
