Politicians mixing icing for the next election
One can almost smell an election. Prime Minister Stephen Harper is running around spending our money. Liberal Leader Michael Ignatieff seems to have thinned out his eyebrows. NDP Leader Jack Layton is doing his best to look wise and co-operative.
When the campaign speeches begin, we must realize that everyday words that we all understand seem to have a different meaning in the political arena. We have seen many politicians with the title right honourable do things that were not very honourable.
Representation seems to mean the leaders represent themselves while our MPs represent their leaders. A political promise is like icing on a cake – no good for you but it makes the cake look good.
