Thoughts on Tom Mulcair's "Hotline Bling" Dance...

This Hour Has 22 Minutes says that we'll get the full video tonight, but even 9 seconds of Tom Mulcair doing Drake's "Hotline Bling" is well... mindblowing? ...disturbing? ...like the first time someone dipped chocolate in peanut butter?

But when I first saw it, my train of thought completely derailed:
  1. Wow - that's Tom Mulcair doing "Hotline Bling."
  2. Does Tom Mulcair have any idea who Drake is?
  3. Does Drake have any idea who Tom Mulcair is? 
  4. Is Drake even allowed to vote?
  5. If he is, for whom did Drake vote?
  6. Am I the only one who rewrites sentences just to avoid misuse of the word "who"?
  7. Have I really become that boring that I'm sitting here wondering about the voting habits of a rap star and poor grammar amongst the populace?
  8. Did I just use the word "amongst"?
  9. And "populace"?
  10. Does anyone else EVER use the word "amongst" anymore?
  11. Quick! Do something cool! 
  12. Umm...
  13. Crap. I'm really that boring.
  14. Damn you, Tom Mulcair! This is ALL YOUR FAULT!!!
But here: it's Stephen Harper with Justin Bieber.

I don't feel so bad now.
