“I realize many potential supporters may be disappointed by this news, but I feel there must be at least one or two qualified candidates among the 73 Canadians who are already running. Together, they will likely call Mr. Harper every name I could have thought up myself. I take comfort from that, as should all Canadians.”
With this declaration, Mr. Potyondi joins a distinct minority of Canadians who are not running for the Liberal leadership.
In my experience the average Canadian tends to have a basic understanding of U.S. history, culture, politics and current events but people in the U.S. know virtually nothing about Canadian history, culture, politics or current events.
Yes, there are exceptions but as someone who has lived in both countries sometimes sweeping generalizations start with a kernel of truth.
This is why I was so excited to stumbled across Disstemper, a brand new political satire blog about Canadian politicians and current events.
The humour they’ve displayed so far shows glimmers of being darkly, fiercely Canadian. Will the jokes translate well to international readers? I certainly hope so!
Let me know what you think of it in the comment section.
