Canadian politics is hard to decipher. At first glance, it looks like Canadians are just too nice with each other and thus, it’s hardly the political theatre that is American politics. If you’ve ever had to sit through any question period session, there’s a lot of yelling (sometimes in french) when the first topic is brought up, then it gets really quiet.
Sometimes, though, our politicians deliver the goods. Such was the case when the seemingly impending zombie apocalypse was brought up during one session. Now, they’re busting out the Arrested Development references as they wonder where the Conservative government has stashed our cash. (IS IT IN THE BANANA STAND? IS IT, PRIME MINISTER STEPHEN HARPER?)
So, are we supposed to think politics is hip and cool now? Who knows, but I will always appreciate an Arrested Development joke.
