A poll of my own

How do you vote?
Ok, yes, you pick up a pencil, make an x, fold the ballot…
But I mean, what factors influence your vote? Family tradition? Duceppe’s blue eyes? Promises?
This question has been on my mind, so I have done something about it – tada, polling now available. Take a second to make your mark. Think of it as practice for the big day.

If you have suggestions for other polls, or amendments to this one, leave a comment.
Results will be posted when I figure that part out.

Casting votes, casting doubts

For the undecided among us, comes a quiz to help determine which federal party best speaks for our interests.
Apparently, I’m actually an NDP-er, 100%.
Close second? The Bloq, at 80%. I scored 73% Liberal.
The only reassuring result was the 7% I scored for the Conservatives. So I can continue to sneer sardonically at Harper. Phew.

His story of the world

According to G.W. Bush:
Like the Second World War, our present conflict [Iraq] began with a ruthless surprise attack on the United States. We will not forget that treachery and we will accept nothing less than victory over the enemy.”
Oh, where do I start?
1. The second world war started on Sept. 3, 1939, when Britain, France, Australia and New Zealand declared war on Germany. WWII did not start two years later on Dec. 7, 1941, when Pearl Harbor was attacked.
2. Ruthless surprise attack?
3. Bush himself is on record as saying there is no link between Iraq and the 9/11 attack. So how did the ‘present conflict’ begin with an unrelated attack?
