... We are in a new political era
... Now we have “airheads.” The term is perhaps over-colloquial, but I think it best expresses the quality our new leaders share
... The Trudeau boy is a generation younger. In addition to snowboarding, his experience includes nightclub bouncer, and teaching high school in Vancouver. ... the lad was not really exposed to politics until it came into his head, or into the heads of Liberal Party organizers,
... His acceptance speech last night was sort-of sweet; it showed him still quite damp behind the ears.
... I don’t think he is especially malicious. ... has the media savvy of the selfie generation, and can more or less handle the bofferball questions from a sympathetic press. His sincerity shines when it comes to a small range of policy enthusiasms, such as the legalization of marijuana and brothels, and he is visibly convinced that peace is much nicer than war.
... I’m sure he “believes” in the drivel he is mouthing. I expect he will prove more used than using, as his government agenda falls into place.
