The election has been called

Canada goes to the polls for the third time in just over four years on October 14.

Who dissolves parliament and calls an election on a Sunday? Seriously, WHO DOES THAT???? Oh wait, we do. My bad.

The Green party is threatening to go to court if they aren't allowed in the debates. Imagine how much more entertaining the debates would be if they had to mime them (minus the makeup of course). Or interpretive dance. Now if Elizabeth May was proposing that I'd be all for it.

Rick Mercer really needs to update his website. This election has only been official for a few hours and it's already sadly lacking in snark.
