I've just realised that the English language debate between the five main Canadian party leaders is going to clash with the US Vice Presidential debate. Damnit! I originally thought the clash was with the French language debate.
What's an effectively unilingual, voteless but interested, Canadian resident to do? I really want to see what my next prime minister has to say for himself. But on the other hand I really really want to see Biden make Palin break down into incoherent babbling on live TV. Hmmm.
Well, since we only have one TV, I guess it comes down to how badly Mr E Man wants to see the Canadian debate. He already knows who he's voting for, so hopefully I can persuade him to watch the Palin train wreck and either record the Canadian debate or just watch all the analysis shows afterwards.
If I didn't know any better I'd say Stephen Harper had deliberately called the election at a time when it was bound to be overshadowed by media coverage of the American Presidential race. But surely he wouldn't do such a thing...
