Yesterday I voted in advance in Ottawa’s municipal election. I voted for Alex Munter for mayor, who is a thoroughly reasonable candidate compared to his opponents who are either right wingnuts or crooks.
That said I was on a bus the yesterday and the guy next to me reading the paper made the comment that there was no real good candidate for Mayor, and I agreed. Then He asked me who I was going to vote for to which I responded that I had already voted for Alex Munter.
NEVER TALK POILITICS ON A BUS !
This guy turns red in the face and says are you insane you want a GAY socialist as the next mayor?
After I got over the shock of being yelled at by an obvious right wing homophobe, I said “I suspect I am saner that you, and yes sweetheart we need more handsome gay men in politics.”
Then I got up and left.
Sorry If my pretending to be gay insults my gay friends but this just had to be done.
