Maybe I don't speak Canadian... but who or what is this "dod" that this guy's kid doesn't want to spend time with?
I really don't appreciate your sarcastic, anti-comedy tone, Bro!

I feel like the more explicitly non-representative the government gets, the weaker it American Democracy becomes

Like that weak-ass China!

I fixed it to reflect more what I was trying to say, Mr. Ironic Political Smarty Pants.

It is my right as an American to take your statements out of context in order to distort them.

That made me do that weird laugh you do when you are shocked at how ridiculous something is. Then I felt like a cynical American asshole for thinking that was a weak add because there was no political spin/attacks involved.

Apparently, we've entered the era when you can lie shamelessly, over and over, and know that it's a highly effective campaign strategy. I hope voters prove this to be untrue, but I don't see it happening. I guess in some people's calculations, it's better to vote for a liar than a black man?

Did you miss a word in the first sentence?
Breakfast- I'm havin' a time
Wheelies- I'm havin' a time
Headlocks- I'm havin' a time
Drunk Tank- not so much a time
George St.- I'm havin' a time
Brenda- I'm havin' a time
Bingo- I'm havin' a time
House Arrest- I'm still havin' a time

I think the effective framing of the "liberal media" over the course of the last decade+ proves how effective these people are at twisting reality and using repetition to make it stick in people's minds as a truth.

The Canadians keep their political spin and attacks online with sites like this one... a few days ago the Puffin seen flying by Dion was actually crapping on his shoulder.

The Bradley effect worries me a little, but I don't think it's a huge problem. McCain and Obama are so ideologically different that I can't imagine many people would say they were voting for Obama and then actually vote for McCain because they are a secret racist. I think the Bradley effect is more of a factor in primaries, when the candidates have similar views and it might be more PC to say you're going to vote for the black guy instead of the white guy.
