The nightmare begins.

Hideous. Heartbreaking. The polls closed at 9; it’s 10, and I’ve turned off the TV, can’t bear to watch any more. We are going to have that gang of goons at Queen’s Park. “The war on the car is over!”

At least my riding, which has been Liberal forever, voted in the NDP candidate. In fact, most if not all of downtown is NDP. The suburbs – solid blue. This for a party proudly without a platform headed by a bullying crooked former drug dealer with no provincial experience and facing a major lawsuit.

As my distraught daughter wrote earlier, “People are stupid!” And this is a woman who prides herself on not being judgmental. But sometimes, judgement is called for, and right now, no question, a majority of our fellow Ontarians are fucking stupid.

PS Anna on FB yesterday, telling it like it is to a right-wing nut:
Ford is a white supremacist and neo-nazi-endorsed (fucking literally) ex-drug dealing trust fund baby, bully and total creep tricking STUPID or intellectually lazy people with buzz words. 


That’s my girl.

P.S. All you need to know:

The Doug Ford campaign bus parked in an accessible spot reserved for the handicapped.
