Dr StrangeJob Aims Higher

My loyal readers (both of you) may be wondering why the Doctor stopped gracing the pages of this most valuable online news endeavor.

The fact is, I was so busy planning my mayoralty coronation that I only now discovered that I lost the election. I am still shocked: my Pier reviews were strong and the Poles were in my favor, but it appears that my Ukrainian relatives didn’t vote.

I was also counting on a strong union backing, but the rank-n-file eluded me. Perhaps I concentrated too much on the female vote and set my male servers offline too early.

Similar to Hillary Clinton, I was unavailable to make a concession speech on election night. Unlike Hillary, I see no need to make one after the fact. CBRM voted, I lost, you’re stuck with whom you voted for, and I can’t trump that. I will not, however, shy away from saying “I told you so” whenever the chance arises.

To be honest, municipal politics were never my forte. I only used the CBRM campaign as a dry run for what will become my most triumphant political victory. Yes, that’s right – Dr StrangeJob plans to run in the upcoming provincial election.

I will not support any political party willing to have me as a candidate, but I will go to any party willing to support my candid-decency.

The Doctor’s wit will start dropping as soon as the writ is dropped. Perhaps sooner.
