Although Donald Trump used to sleep with a copy of Hitler's speeches on his bedside table, I've tried to avoid comparing him to the Nazi dictator.
For whatever he is Trump isn't Hitler, and to suggest he is only insults that murderous maniac's many victims.
But after reading a review of a new book about Hitler's rise to power, I must admit I might have to reconsider that position.
I'm glad to see that another poll is suggesting that most Americans believe Hillary Clinton beat Donald Trump in their first debate.
A new Reuters/Ipsos poll finds that a majority of Americans believe Hillary Clinton won the first presidential debate on Monday.
The poll found that, out of 2,000 responders, 56 percent thought the Democratic nominee won the debate, as opposed to 26 percent who said the same about Republican Donald Trump.
But while Clinton did perform well, and did at the very least halt Trump's momentum..
She did make one very big mistake.

As if the Con leadership race wasn't bizarre or pathetic enough.
With Kellie Leitch trying to stir up hatred against refugees and immigrants.
And Brad Trost trying to stir up hatred against gay Canadians.
Now another Con fanatic is joining the race.
Anyone who watched the Donald Trump Hillary Clinton debate knows who won.
And it wasn't the Annoying Orange.
But don't tell that to the bloated demagogue, because he simply can't accept reality.
And spent the day after his humiliating defeat claiming victory.

I must admit I was a
The bloated demagogue has been enjoying some momentum. Polls suggest the race is now a dead heat.
And with just six weeks to go before the election, it was a critical moment.
But it turns out I shouldn't have worried, because Clinton left Trump looking like a big baby.

I wasn't planning to write another post about Kellie Leitch for a while, because I feel I've written enough about her to last me a lifetime.
But then I saw the cover of the latest issue of Macleans and I changed my mind.
Because although that picture is absolutely ridiculous, and has people howling with laughter all over the country.
And wondering where did she get that flag pole from?

The ghastly show is finally over. After a shabby twenty year run on Parliament Hill Jason Kenney has packed up his harp, and finally left the building.
But not before one last tawdry song.
Jason Kenney delivered a rousing and emotional farewell speech in the House of Commons on Thursday after nearly 20 years as a member of Parliament. He struck a non-partisan tone and urged his colleagues to embrace their role as legislators, not simply as foot soldiers of a political party, and to relish their time in the hallowed halls of Centre Block — "the temple of our democracy," as he described it.
Which couldn't have been more phony or absurd. Kenney the ultimate rabid partisan preaching non partisanship in the "temple of democracy" he desecrated over and over again.
And that wasn't the only scandal...

I'm really looking forward to this weekend. It's going to be warm and sunny, and perfect for biking, or sailing.
And on Sunday, in this park in my neighbourhood, there is going to be a big book fair with lots of authors and artists. So it couldn't be better, or more lovely Canada.
But I can't forget what's happening to so many people in this nightmare place.
And ever since I found out that Chris Alexander and Kellie Leitch will be reuniting.
I can't help wondering what might have happened to some of the Syrian refugees now living in this peaceful country if the Cons had been re-elected?
Let it never be said that Ted Cruz holds a grudge for long. Or that he will let anything get in the way of his feverish desire to be President.
Not even what's left of his dignity, his father's good name, or his wife's honour.
For after having called Donald Trump every dirty word in the book, and claiming he'd have to be a "servile puppy" to endorse him
Big Ted has rolled over like a lap dog and endorsed him anyway.

The other day I wrote about how Kellie Leitch's "Anti-Canadian Values" campaign had brought back memories of the Chris and Kellie show.
The barbaric Con production where Leitch and Chris Alexander demonized Muslims, and invited Canadians to snitch on their neighbours.
And it was such an ugly memory, I remember thinking thank goodness that show was cancelled, and that those two will never be together again.
But sadly I was wrong. Because it seems that the Chris and Kellie show is on again.
