Here are my thoughts on last night’s Leaders’ Debate — actually, more on the leaders themselves…
Stephen Harper was calm, cool and collected. But a convulsion went through me every time he tried to pass off his evil smirk as a geniune smile.
Paul Martin looked old, tired and beat up. History may prove me wrong, but I think he’s done.
This is the first time I’ve seen Jack Layton speak at length. The guy had some decent points to make, if he could only shut his mouth once he was finished. And the dude’s got the smallest hands I’ve ever seen!
Most surprising for me was Bloc-Quebecois leader Gilles Duceppe. Despite a noticeable language barrier he came across as the evening’s most eloquent speaker, I thought. Too bad he wants to break up the country.
Oh, and one more thing: Can someone please explain to me why the fuck David Vienneau is on television? This man-munchkin hybrid makes me cringe every time he stumbles through one of his reports from Ottawa on Global National. Who exactly did he blow to get on panel for this debate?
