  The Utility of Interpretations
So, this is kinda old news, but bear with me.

Ipsos-Reid released a detailed interpretation of the latest polling numbers. Interesting findings include:

-Tories and Liberals are tied nearly at 31 and 32 per cent respectively.
-In Ontario, the Liberals still enjoy a commanding 11 per cent lead.

Now, I'm sure no one paying attention will be overly surprised by these numbers. What I find irksome is the response by conservatives, notably and Adam Daifallah.

"Dear God, Ontario!" They plaintively cry, "Why do you tolerate such Liberal corruption?"

Indeed, a valid question. But the answer becomes clear when you actually complete the thought. Why do we tolerate Liberal corruption? Because the alternative is so much worse.

In short, we're presented with a Hobson's choice...Do I vote for the Liberals who illicitly distributed taxpayer money for their own benefit, or the neo/theocon alliance whose selfish, gay-marriage blocking, idiotic fiscal policy-making, environmental protection rejecting, lead-by-an-accountant-with-an-eight-dollar-haircut political trainwreck? The choice is really no choice at all.

Get rid of Harper. Get progressive. Let's see some good policy on actual issues. Then, Conservative Party, maybe Ontario and you can have a talk.

Jack of all trades, master of none, Graeme is many things to many people. Unfortunately, none of them find him very life-affirming in any capacity. He is a freelance writer, broadcaster, amateur cryptozoologist and occasional political commentator late of London, England and now based in Toronto. Most of the time, he's confused. And a little hungry. But mostly just confused and somewhat uncomfortable writing in the third person.
