Like Bad Boy commercials without the charisma

At the risk of sounding like Naomi K, read Advertocracy, please, and vindicate my earlier comments about the idealist but idea-free election campaigns.

For the Election Act to be changed would require a mass movement on the part of the Canadian people, who normally only engage in mass movements during commercial breaks from American Idol. And in a perverse way Canadians do get considerable benefits from the current system – if politicians didn't lie and fail to keep their promises, the range of humanity we could feel morally superior to would be drastically reduced.
