good strategy

It's a helluva drug.

Chienne set me up!

He's gay, French-Canadian, admits to using cocaine, and he's leading the polls? That's a multifaceted GOP nightmare all bundled in one guy.

/eh?

(...to click "add comment" or to not click... that is the question...)
 
2005-11-11 09:27:56 AM
pshaw

You think if we rubbed this guy against Orrin Hatch they'd annihilate each other?
 
2005-11-11 09:59:07 AM
pshaw
He's gay

Oh, in that case it would be "fils d'une chienne set me up!", or possibly "Reine set me up!".
 
2005-11-11 09:59:33 AM
Wow. A country where voters have learned to look past the insignificant and actually vote on the issues. Imagine that.

Scaling the results, Bush's approval rating should be approximately eleventy billion percent.

This from a country that elected Dubya? Twice?
 
2005-11-11 11:53:09 AM
I would love it if once, JUST ONCE, one of our politicians could be so truthful.

"Yeah, I inhaled. It was stupid. I was stupid as a kid. Who among us can say we never did stupid things as a kid? Didn't think so."

"Yeah, I had sex with that intern. I am ashamed to admit it, but I am not going to lie about it anymore. I am sorry... Oh, who am I kidding! She gives the best BJ's in town!"

"Yeah, Iraq was about a personal vendetta and personal debt to the people who put me in office... But look on the bright side: We did just dispose a really terrible man, AND set up a foothold in the most unstable region in the world. Maybe, just maybe, we can have some good come of this."

-Not that it would ever happen, but man it'd be SWEET...

Amazing. Stop bullshiatting the people and insulting their intelligence, and they'll respect you for it.

Not only that, but we realize that you're a human being representing us, not a perfect god to be worshipped from on high. College age drug use and where you stick your peener hardly affects how you do any job, imo.

/who'd a thunk it
 
2005-11-11 11:56:00 AM
I love canadians. They are so worried about the US and GWB. Most Americans could care less who runs that "country" north of us. They must really have a little brother syndrome or something.
 
2005-11-11 11:56:44 AM
Odd that this lands in a Texas paper, but hey.
 
2005-11-11 11:56:52 AM
Being English and living in Quebec, I don't care about the coke or that he's gay. A separatist however...
That is mostly true about Canadians, it's just the politics that matter.
 
2005-11-11 11:57:29 AM
"I guess this tells us the stupidity of A) canadians anb B) appoval ratings."

For reasons I'm sure you're not even aware of that post was funny as hell.

"Canada is like that annoying little brother, ya know? "Hey, America! Where you goin'? To war? ....can I come?!""

-Some Canadian comedian who's name excapes me at the moment.

I think most countries have a Stockholm Syndrome stance concerning us...

El_Swino: Except that there are laws in place that if I get caught with cocaine I go to jail. If this Boisclair guy gets into power, he either has to give the same leniency to other cocaine users or admit he's just a smarmy hypocritical self-serving manipulative and image-engineered piece of crap like all the other slimy bottom-feeders that society calls politicians.

"Canada is like that annoying little brother, ya know? "Hey, America! Where you goin'? To war? ....can I come?!""

WWI - big brother US: `Hey little Canada, start without me. I'll catch up (in three years).'

WWII - big brother US: `Hey little Canada, start without me. I'll catch up (in two years).'

Very witty response to oldfarthenry

Hey, I never said it was accurate. The comedian said it, not me. And he was Canadian!

He did coke while he was a minister.

Yeah and the US had to come bail everyone out. Fear the might of the Canadian Army. You guys cracked the 30 million mark way to go!
 
2005-11-11 12:08:09 PM
funny because my approval rating with women also goes up when I admit to them I used cocaine...

/YAY!!

Well...no one will be able to accuse him to sleep on the job.

And I'm sure Dubya will see him as a friend... they have some habits in commun!

Wait! He's gay... So I guess he won't be a friend of Dubya! This is a much better thing!!!!! GO BOISCLAIR GO! T'ES MON HOMME! LCHE PAS!

Don't get me wrong, Canada elects some major idiots like any other country. We just don't dwell on their past private lives. With some of the smear campaigns I seen from the States it a wonder that anyone runs for office.
 
2005-11-11 12:20:21 PM
I would say looking at someones past private life is a good way to judge character, which i feel is something that should def. be considered when chosing a candidate
 
2005-11-11 12:24:28 PM
Hey, oldfarthenry: Canada then > Canada now.

Just thought you'd like to know.

He did coke while he was a minister.

Did he snort if off of the bare ass of an altar boy?

Honestly it's honesty (which we least expect) that makes a man an honest man and plants seeds for respect.
 
2005-11-11 12:27:32 PM


With his good looks and urban flair, he has emerged as the top candidate to lead the party that seeks independence for the French-speaking Canadian province.

It sounds like Eartha *snort* is selling a car.

/urban flair = homosexuality?

oldfarthenry: So true...

Anyway, who wants to elect a politician that is disconnected from real like, who had never had real mean fun or never made any mistakes (I mean : never admitted any mistakes)?

The difference between a United-Stater-of-America politician and a Canadian politician reside only in the fact that the first one just have to claim "I'm born again! Look at me! I'm blessed by god! I'm born again!" so everyone forget about his past life. The second one still have to face reality when questionned about it 'cause he dont have that "God thing" excuse.

Farkin A

maybe you should stop talking to yourself in a FARK thread. They have mirrors for that you know

(unless, you're too ugly to have one around...)


and It's excellent to see a politician honest about their mistakes. Problem is this guy is a seperatist. Otherwise i'd think he was a cool guy.
 
2005-11-11 12:33:03 PM
By judging people by their private lives, you're really just ensuring that the people you eventually elect are the best at:

A) lying,
B) hiding it

or, in otherwords, that you pick the person who is most dishonest. Everyone has skeletons in their closets. I'd rather pick the guy whose skeletons I know, and who is thus more honest.
 
2005-11-11 12:33:57 PM
`Hey, oldfarthenry: Canada then > Canada now.

Just thought you'd like to know.'

Most blue states disagree
 
2005-11-11 12:38:40 PM
Bmo: ...United-Stater-of-America...

Please tell me this is a joke.
 
2005-11-11 12:45:00 PM
If the worst thing our politicians did with their poor judgement was abusing their own body... well, I'd be pretty damn happy with them too.
 
2005-11-11 12:50:50 PM
well, now that his skeletons are all out of the closet, there wont be any left for later to scandalize about.

unless he gets gay oral sex in the Quebec City Parliament building (doesnt have an oval office AFAIK)
 
2005-11-11 12:51:58 PM
Um guys, he took cocain while he was a minister!

I can forgive a politician of doing drugs if it was while he was in high school or working at McDonald's, I would even applaud his honesty but he was a minister!

Maudits Quebecois, deniaisez!

InflatableJesus: NO!

What if people from UK wanted to be called "European" and nothing else? It's maybe true but not 100% accurate 'cause they are not the only ones living in Europe. What about Spain, Italy etc.

So same for you. You are not the only country in the Americas. Even in north america, you are not alone so why would "American" would be exclusive to you???

And by the way, it's how we name residents of your country here. So in french, Unites-States-of-America is Les Etats-Unis d'Amerique, so we call residents of your country Les Etats-Uniens. And french countries in Europe are doing the same! fACE REALITY MON AMI!

it's logic 101, not rocket science.

Drug use adles the brain. It may make you think you feel better or smarter...ah, feelings vs. facts. Which brings us to Canadian libs voting for coke-tooting Candian libs.

What's so farking remarkable about "birds of a feather flocking together."?

Cuckoo! Cuckoo!

He gotta keep trolling until someone bites! How else will he get the attention no girl will grant him?
 
2005-11-11 01:06:17 PM
To add to what Bmo said.

In Spanish the term Americano refers to someone from the Americas, someone from the United-States is Estadounidense.
