Though you don't believe that it's true, I never meant any harm to you

Reader-submitted question: Were you supporting Hillary Clinton for president?

Why? Because of this?

Unfortunately, this is not the sort of thing that would make me support a politician. I am pretty forgiving when it comes to cocaine abuse, megalomania and experimental double albums, but this is a real freak show.

I generally look for some indication that the person has good judgment. As much as I like Christine McVie's music, this is not a song that should inspire confidence in a national leader. Perhaps this is because I listened to the words. You would think that the Clintons would have put in a similar amount of effort before choosing this song to represent their campaign. Or even just skimmed the lyrics. (I know, this is crazy talk.)

I used to think that Republican delegates were bad dancers, but watching these Democrats lurch around trying to clap on beat makes me proud to be a Canadian.
