At some point all the nastiness will be over and we’ll be glad of it, at least until the day we’ll wish it was just politics again. Because the election won’t end well, we know that, and too soon will come the actual governing, and we’ll have to live with who we got, and that can only mean cruel disappointment or bitter anger.
Because we know the office-holder we voted for can’t possibly measure up in the cold post-inaugural light, and the office-holder we did not vote for will be worse than our most paranoid imaginings.
We’re talking, you understand, about the election for men’s club president at the Golf Course in the Valley of the Shadow of the Brewery. I don’t care about any other election.
I wish it didn’t take so long to get a passport … they say demand is high right now. Hey, what’s the job market like for an American in Calgary? Maybe Toronto?
