Are you wondering who's winning the Manitoba election?
That makes two of us.
Despite living in Winnipeg, working in the local media and even canvassing door-to-door for NDP candidates, I can't call next Tuesday's vote.
Manitoba NDP leader Greg Selinger has run a good, gaffe-free campaign emphasizing the government's key accomplishments -- low unemployment, strong public services and a decent economy. Selinger turned in a solid performance at the televised leaders' debate and even master-minded Harper-style attack ads, accusing the opposition Conservatives of a hidden agenda to privatize public utilities.
Gotta love an election campaign that kicks off with a mini-scandal called Dranogate.
That's the scene in Manitoba, where the opposition Progressive Conservatives are in hot, er, plumbing fluids over their playlist at a pep rally.
As Manitoba PC leader Hugh McFadyen charged up the stage at his campaign launch, somebody in the backroom thought it would be a hoot to play the song Party Rock Anthem by the band LMFAO (Laugh My F**kng Ass Off, for those who don't read text-lingo).
One of the lines in the tune is, "Yo, I'm runnin' through these hos like Drano!"
