Well since the current US election has taken over my blog, I've done a couple of things. First, I've created a new category Election '08 where you can find all my rants on this year's federal elections. Second, I've joined a new group blog, A Vote for Science. About nine of us sb bloggers will be contributing and the site
will be up shortly is live, go check it out.
And yes, elections have also been called in my home country. For the record, I have been living in the US for 11 years now but that might be changing in the near future. In fact, I'll be up in Toronto late next week for a quick visit. And just to show that the Canadian elections can also be idiotic, here's a clip for you:
At least Canadian elections don't go on forever. That's a big advantage over our endless American campaign season. I mean, some 2008 also-rans are already positioning themselves for 2012. (You can tell by the degree to which they are available for campaign stops with local candidates, who might turn into convention delegates in the future.)
I think these are pretty tame (and somewhat silly if anything), compared to the all-out viciousness of american politics. Swift river anyone....
In a related video from the one you posted, they say the other group responded by launching "Scandalpedia, a take-off on Wikipedia."
Have we really gotten that far down the tunnel so quickly that we think something ending in pedia is a takeoff on Wikipedia rather than the word encyclopedia?
