Someone just sent me this video and I want to talk about it and other issues of a political nature.

Is anyone else totally sick of hearing people ask WWTFFD?

    If we're going to name pies after ignominious figures, I want to up the ante. I want a Pol Pot Pie.

    Fox news (specifically beck) was expected to get a *HUGE* ratings boom because of this whitehouse "war".... turns out that so far ratings have stayed steady (beck is maintaining 2.6million viewers on average). Which may actually mean (if you accept that some of the viewers may actually be new viewers as a result of the publicity) over the next few weeks (as this latest controversy dies down) fox news ratings actually decrease significantly as a result of the whitehouse comments (not to mention CNN and MSNBC calling Fox out on their bullshit too)

    Bloc hasn't been about Quebec separation for a while now. They just want extra sovereignty for Quebec as per I think it was uh, the Meech Lake Accords.

    Really politically Bloc sits to the left of the Liberals, probably just around a tiny bit left of actual centre, close to the NDP.

    I just wish Duccepe would cross the floor to the Liberals and replace Iggy because fucking hell I dislike Iggy + he could then become PM which would OWN

    But seriously, presidents shouldn't say "Don't criticize me." You're the president. You have a monopoly on force. You have a lot going for you as it is. You don't get to ask the press not to pick on you.

    The thing is that it gets ridiculous far too often nowadays. People are being paid to talk about really basal shit, like the level that middle schoolers are at regarding politics.

    It's ridiculous, yes.
    But if a bunch of five-year-olds jump you, do you just start breaking their adorable little heads?
    No, because you're a grown-up.
    If the press makes absurd allegations, does the president get to have an on-air feud with Fox?
    No, because he's a president.

    Yes you would, those little shits need to learn that numbers =/= strength
