I thought Matt Stairs' recent comments might deserve a spot on your blog:

"When you get that nice celebration coming into the dugout and you’re getting your ass hammered by guys — there’s no better feeling than to have that done."

I have no idea what that has to do with the election, but Matt Stairs was absolutely money last night, and you couldn't have a good ol' fashioned ass-hammering happen to a better guy. Lord love the pride of Saint John, NB.

For the record, I'm being forced to vote Liberal even though I think Dion is really kind of creepy (and that is compared to Harper, who wears lipstick). The Liberal platform is fine, but it is essentially the same as the Conservatives (except the Consertives support a smaller and less intrusive government, which makes all kinds of sense to me), so I would far rather try and get a majority government in power, so we don't have another 2 or 4 years of dead time when nothing can pass because the House only votes along partisan lines. If we do get another minority, I guess the public will continue to sit and wait for another vote of non-confidence, so we can have another snap election, waste a whole bunch more time, effort and money on campaigns and end up at the exact same place we are today. Sweet.

My riding essentially only has two parties running, Liberals and NDP (they are expected to account for something like 90% of the votes), so voting Conservative effectively becomes a waste of time.

I don't know if voting for the less worse option is exactly what I would consider democratic, but I suppose the same could be said about every political process every held.
