How Do YOU Pick Your Political Candidate?

We had a provincial election yesterday.

I'm not one of these people who puts a political sign on my lawn.

My father taught me that you never discuss politics or religion.

That way, nobody ends up dead ;-)

So, I generally keep 'who I'm voting for' to myself.

Personally, I don't think any one party is better than the other. It's just a matter of picking the lesser of the evils.

Maybe, I should just take my voting cues from my 9yr old.





Kid: Are you voting tomorrow Mom?

Me:
Yup!

Kid:
You're voting for Percy Paris right? You'd better be voting for Percy, Mom!


Originally, I thought he wanted me to vote for Mr Paris, because he lives 'around the corner' from us, and his daughter is a counsellor at the boys Daycamp.

But no. Not my kid. That's not how he chooses the BEST candidate.


Me: And why do you think I should vote for Percy Paris?

Kid: Rolling his eyes, sighing, like I'm a complete moron, he says ....



Cause he's got an AWESOME pimped out mustache, Mom! JEEZE!

Congratulations Mr Paris!

A pimped out mustache? Makes perfect sense to me.
