I don't mind elections. What, they take about 15 minutes out of my life? I could do an election every few months, federal or provincial.They're kinda fun.

And besides, being a politician shouldn't be easy or cheap.

Elections take weeks out of my life and I suspect the lifes of many others on this board.

Elections are fun. Not as much fun as playing Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, but close.

Maybe if you were allowed to run over canvassers it would be as much fun.

Wo. Hold on there. Speak not ill of the canvassers. I've done it plenty. It's hard, thankless, mind-numbing work. There should be a fuckin statue to The Unknown Canvasser! Besides, it's either that, phone bank or sign crew. I start Monday. I'm still getting into character. I've got this real Reservoir Dog kind of look going for me. Black suit, white dress shirt, black sox, black Oxfords and a skinny black tie. Tomorrow I'm going down to Sunglass Hut to pick-up a pair of black Wayfarers to complete the ensemble. That, along with my own personal brand of charm, should bring in plenty of votes for The Party. I'm only sorry I'm just one man. Would that I could spread my word throughout all 58 constituencies. In a perfect world...

When I was going door to door it was hard slogin, they tell you not to get tied up, just to see who they are supporting. But you really want to convince someone if they seem interested and swayable. But if you waste an hour or so on just one person you will never get enough done. Because if someone from the other side comes by after you and gets it done in half an hour, that means you lost that voter and all the time to boot.
