What happened with the Canadian federal election? An episode from The Simpsons offers the perfect analogy.
Remember the one with Frank Grimes, the smart, hard working new employee who is stunned that someone as incompetent as Homer Simpson is the power plant's safety inspector?
In an attempt to humiliate him in front of the entire town, Grimes tricks Homer into taking part in a children's contest to make a miniature model of a future nuclear power plant.
The first contestant is dimwitted Ralph Wiggum. His model is just a mass-produced pink doll house with the words "Nuclear Dream House" scratched on it.
Mr. Burns isn't impressed.
"Hot tub? Media room? It's supposed to be a power plant, not Ed Buller’s bordello! Thank you, get out!"
The next contestant is Martin, the sitcom’s earnest, unpopular teacher’s pet. His glowing nuclear power plant model looks as if he has put a lot of effort into it.
Mr. Burns is immediately turned off. “Too cold and sterile! Where's the heart?”
Martin replies, “But it really generates power! It’s lighting this room right now!”
But Mr. Burns won't have it.
“You lose! Get off my property.”
The next and final contestant is Homer Simpson. His miniature nuclear power plant is made of crushed pop cans and elbow macaroni.
Mr. Burns is intrigued. “Can you explain your model, young man?”
An individual from the audience yells, “What’s to explain? He’s an idiot!”
But, incredibly, Mr.Burns awards Homer first prize.
The episode ends with Grimes, breaking down into a rage, screaming, “This whole plant is insane, I tell you! Insane!”
In that Simpsons episode, an idiot adult is the winner of a children's contest.
And in Canada, an idiot kid just won our federal election.
How many of us had to blink our eyes a few times before accepting that, yes, the Liberal party had won a majority government of 184 seats?
The man who admires China's "basic dictatorship," and who feebly joked that Russia invading Ukraine over a hockey match, is now going to be our Right Honourable Prime Minister for the next four years.
The Laurentian Elite attacked Harper ceaselessly from the start, using the Media party to portray him as a dictator controlled by oil companies, who wants to see baby polar bears starve while he silences scientists and ignores missing aboriginal women.
The Media Party presented Justin Trudeau, on the other hand, as the Messiah of Canada, the one foretold by the Prophet Ignatieff in his farewell address:
"There must be someone out there, possible in the room this morning and possibly watching on television, who looks at me and thinks, 'He didn't get there, but I will."
That "someone" turned out to Justin Trudeau. And with his crushed pop cans and elbow macaroni, he is going to be "there" for the next four years.
This is astounding, but remember what else Ignatieff said:
"I think the surest guarantee of the future for the Liberal Party of Canada is four years of Conservative government.”
And I am quite confident that after four years of massive public spending, carbon taxes, pulling Canada out of the war on terror, and with pot heads roaming our streets, the Canadian public will be begging for another Conservative government.
It will be an opportunity to expose the Laurentian Elite as the frauds they are, and destroy their model of an elitist, over taxed Canada once and for all.
Now that's a "contest" I'm happy to take part in.
