Ah, the first post of October...
Our friend Link has decided that he's had enough of boring people stupid with his "rants" in the Edmonton Sun, and has apparently decided to take his little act to the national stage. Actually, this is pretty funny. If he wins, we're going to get to see ol' Link on his knees in front of Paul Martin begging for a job.

I'm in the race
By LINK BYFIELD -- Calgary Sun
Not the human race, surely.
It now looks almost certain that a provincial election will occur on Monday, Nov. 22.
This matters to me personally, because I'm running in it.
So, elections only matter to the people who're running them? Interesting take on democracy there, old boy.
I'm standing as a candidate for the Senate.
But Link, you do realize that will mean you will have to come out of your bunker, and actually go to Ottawa, should you win and sufficiently fellate the necessary people to actually get a seat.
On voting day, Albertans will be given two ballots, one to pick their local MLA, and the other to choose provincewide candidates for Alberta's three existing Senate vacancies.
Premier Klein will send the top three picks to Prime Minister Paul Martin, urging him to appoint them.
There is, of course, no guarantee Martin will do so. Alberta's first senatorial winner was appointed back in 1989.
Normally, however, prime ministers choose favourites from within their own party who nobody's heard of.
Actually, doofus, most of us have heard of the Prime Minister's own party.
This is why the Canadian Senate has little credibility or public respect.
Whereas, when the Byfield dynasty takes up its rightful seat in Canada's own House of Lords, the credibility and respect will shoot right through the roof! Hooray!
And so on and so forth. Anyway, I want to urge everyone out there to vote for Link for Senate. If he's elected, and his blowjob is of such quality that Martin actually appoints him, I promise, right here on this here blog, that we will shine the bright arc-light of accountability on Mr. Link. We will track his every move in the Upper Chamber! We will note the significance of his every utterance (except the snoring). We will present you with indepth statistical analysis of his salary versus the benefits you, the Canadian taxpayer, are deriving from it! In short, we will pester to the max! Until we get bored.
