You'll notice we've got a ton of political stuff in the round-up this week. In one of our articles, a commenter by the name of Fuck you says a bunch of insane garbage, closing with "Stop writing about politics." We've gotten this a few times, the "stop talking about politics" bit. Some of you are just not interested in politics, and maybe you will be. We're sorry.
But there's an election going on right now. Try as we might, a lot of our writers can't stop thinking about it and, based on digg, a lot of people want to read about it. Now, we know that in Canada, leaders are decided based on a grueling and complex serious of violent, physical challenges. Our election probably seems a little boring by comparison. Just bear with us a little bit longer, and we'll get this political stuff out of our system. We'll be back to bullshitting about boobs in just under a month.

The 5 Most Clearly Insane Public Figures Endorsing McCain
It's like if Batman teamed up with Hitler. But, like, an older Batman. Think Frank Miller's Dark Knight Returns, but a little bit older. And pretend Hitler's a rapper.
Notable Comment:This isn't from the Comments section, but it's still notable. Swaim says " SPECIAL NOTE: Tune in to this space in two weeks for EQUAL TIME: 5 Obama Supporters He'd Rather Not Have! And don't bitch in the comments." We point that out because plenty of people DID bitch in the comments. See, people, you have to read ALL the words in an article. If you only read half or just pick parts at random to read, of COURSE it's going to seem strange.
