Pope Larry II: Subby, you missed the part about the leader of the PQ losing her own riding. Marios took a solid lead in the poles before the election and turned it into a resounding defeat.

I'm guessing the talk about the Charter of Values (aka let's force the immigrants out of the province) and the Referendum did not go over well.


Poppycock!!  Those dastardly Anglo students from Onterrible illegally voted and skewed the whole thing!

That's great news for the rest of Canada. Stability is what Quebec needs now to rebuild their economy and clean up the infrastructure. Now they can get back to what is important: Poutine, Corruption and Strippers.

sendtodave: Huh.

Today I learned that Canada has politics, too.  Tiny widdle politics.  So adorable!


Yep! We also have more than two parties, because our brains can handle higher numbers!

Huh. I thought it was 'money and the ethnic vote'.

The Perils of Pauline Marois.

Leader of a minority government who thought she could be leader of a majority government by calling an early election ends up losing her own seat while her party suffers its worst showing since its very first election in 1970.

A lot of speculation now is over how largely the Charter thingy factored into these results but for my money it was Marois' super candidate Péladeau's fist-pumping pro-sovereignty photo op that was the beginning of the end for them.

Yes, the Liberals have a bad recent track record of corruption in Quebec but it's Quebec for crying out loud.

It's basically like New Jersey only with funnier accents, better beer and hotter women.

Savage Bacon:  I wouldn't be surprised if Coalition Avenir Québec (CAQ) became the Liberal's new opposition in the near future, as it actually focuses on the issues we want to hear about, namely the economy and healthcare.

I can't wait for the CAQ to get more popular. Imagine the election night headlines: "Quebecers prefer CAQ," "CAQ beats off opponents," etc. Yes, it's juvenile, but hey, it's better than all the xenophobia coming out of the PQ.

The plan would have worked fine if it wasn't for those damn meddling kids!

I know what they are compensating for.

I really am horrible about headlines. 30 seconds after I submitted, I was like, "Wow, I should've made a crack about the hilarious pic of Couillard that's in it."
