Michael Moore Is Worried About Canada 4

Michael Moore Statement on Canadian Election:

Oh, Canada — you’re not really going to elect a Conservative majority on Monday, are you? That’s a joke, right? I know you have a great sense of humor, and certainly a well-developed sense of irony, but this is no longer funny. Maybe it’s a new form of Canadian irony — reverse irony! OK, now I get it. First, you have the courage to stand against the war in Iraq — and then you elect a prime minister who’s for it. You declare gay people have equal rights — and then you elect a man who says they don’t. You give your native peoples their own autonomy and their own territory — and then you vote for a man who wants to cut aid to these poorest of your citizens. Wow, that is intense! Only Canadians could pull off a hat trick of humor like that. My hat’s off to you.

The election is this Monday, as Phillip indicated on his poll. I voted for the Green Party last Monday at an advance polling station because I’ll be in Flint, Michigan then. I tend to vote for the longshot.

    We’re doomed. When’s the last time Michael Moore was on the winning side?

    I’ll be voting NDP, because I’m hoping if we can keep Jack Layton around for another 4 or 5 years, he’ll have a good shot at becoming the replacement host for “Jeapordy!” And that’ll be wicked.

    Is it just me, or does Stephen Harper look like he has never won a fight in his life? I’ll kick his ass! Put up yer dukes!

    I know squat about Canadian politics and dont want to get into it. But trust me on this. Micheal Moore is just a fat joke down here. In the last Democratic convention they stuck him next to Jimmy Carter.
    Carter still has negative poll numbers around 70%! after twenty-five years!

    Steven Harper (George W., Jr.), wins a minority goverment.

    Told you we were doomed.
