The Appeal of Jack Layton
Never did see the appeal of Jack Layton. Then again, no politician appeals to me. I liked him better when I heard he had been caught up in a massage parlour raid many years ago.
Clintonesque is how I would describe the last decade of his career. Gained leadership of a political party at a time when no one much wanted the job. Having done so, Layton took the party places. He was a success.
Now people are behaving as if the fucking Pope died. People behave badly these days. Rioting after hockey games; blubbering over dead politicians; shooting Hells Angels. My country is off its motherfucking rocker.
