My sympathies really do go out to all the Americans out in the world. They are in the unenviable position having to pick from one of two bad choices. Here in Canada we had a similarly tough time trying to pick from Harper and Martin (both of them are jackasses). I voted Layton personally, but fat lot of good that did. During our election campaign, I recall hearing the conservatives going on about the benefits of missile defense, and the liberals speaking out against it saying they would have nothing to do with it. Now months later, after the liberals are in power with a minority government. We find the liberals going on about the benefits of missile defense (lying sacks of **** can all go to hell for all I care, 'cept Caroyln Parrish at least she speaks her mind), and the conservatives opposing missile defence (now that its politically beneficial to do so).
