"Oh, if you become V.P., oh, it's Canada for me..."

Welcome, my fellow Americans. Canada is close, but it takes some getting used to.

NSFW (Thank you Rachael Maddow for the link.)



Meanwhile, Canadians are also holding a federal election. Not that Americans would notice. Not that Canadians would notice, if it wasn't for all the complaining that inevitably accompanies the announcement of a Federal election in Canada.

Americans might want to think things through a little. This is not so far from the truth. I have to rely on my Canadian friends and family to do the right thing in the election here. And since I'd like to have a country to return home to one day, I've already cast my absentee ballot for the US election.

Yes, voting is becoming our new national sport :) This election seems to be thrilling, Harper is sure about his victory, on the other hand, these days are very wild and nobody knows what can influence (and HOW) Canadians during this last days/hours before election. I am really awaiting the results...
Take care

Thanks, Lorne -- at least you can watch the election results more-or-less real time. They black all that out until the polls close for us here in BC. Disconcerting.

I was also thankful to be able to send in my absentee ballot in case I end up back there some day. My vote and many others paid of - I'm so glad Obama won!!

Thanks, Brittney. I am still feeling optimistic about the outcome of the election.
