Will it be Darth Vader, or ... ?

Fundamentalist christians think the earth is 6,000 years old.
Is someone who is ignorant enough to think that, qualified to govern a country? I don't think so.
Stephen Harper is a fundamentalist christian!

Something I've noticed during the past two years: Some people, especially some politicians - particularly those of the political right - love to use phrases like "Frankly", or "Frankly speaking", or "To be quite frank" before making a point. And, what I've also noticed is that when that happens, it's usually a lead-in to a lie or a distortion of the truth (which may sound better, but is really the same thing).

If you don't believe me, listen for it whenever Stephen Harper or John Baird or Jason Kenney open their mouths. Also, listen for it when you hear Republicans mouth off in the U.S.

The current polls have Darth Vader on the edge of winning a majority because progressive Canadians seem to be saying they'll split their votes among the Liberals, NDP, the BQ, and the Greens. If that really happens, Canada, as we know it, will soon cease to exist. Stay tuned!
