In his most recent ranting, Warren Ellis is once again slamming that nail home with as few - but as forceful - blows as are needed. I quote his latest email, with links and a photo added, about the new and startlingly EVIL Prime Minister-designate (i.e. "-elect" for us Americans), Stephen Harper.
Doesn't Stephen Harper look like the kind of actor a US or US-but-produced-in-Canada TV show uses as the bad guy when they can't afford a British actor?"no matter what he's talking about, he's actually thinking about shoving pregnant lesbians tits-first into a woodchipper" describes, like, the US's entire upper echelon of government at this time. so already canada's got it made, comparatively speaking.
(Which, when David Warner is still working, is kind of unimaginable. But still.)
You know the kind of guy. Grey hair, so white you can practically see through his skin into his circulatory system, with the kind of unblinking half-glower that let's you know that no matter what he's talking about, he's actually thinking about shoving pregnant lesbians tits-first into a woodchipper. He's the white guy in the suit whose last job was sitting behind a big desk condemning Tia Carrere to death in an episode of RELIC HUNTER.
Paul Martin should never have let on that he was desperate. And now he's in the bin and you're ruled by the guy who plays Creepy Vice-President in Sci-Fi Channel shows.
