Political Interjection

How does this guy get appointed to the Senate?


Call me old fashioned, call me judgmental, but pony tails and more than one ring per hand is "not senate material."

What does/should a senator look like?

Well, they should be old, and look old.

Man they are old! Like Strom Thurmond old. And that is a good thing.

The Senate's purpose is not to drive the new direction of the country, it is not to come up with new ideas and methods for change. Its role is to be the crotchity old person on the porch telling kids how it was back in their day. "sober second thought"

Patrick may have some good ideas on the direction Canada needs to go with the aboriginal communities, but he is not old enough or cynical enough for the senate.
