The BBC on Obama's visit to Canada

(From before the actual event)
"Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper is a Conservative who leads a minority government, and it would be fair to say that he has avoided the temptations of charisma in doing so.


The contrast with the new American president could hardly be greater."



That's awesome.

Go read, it's full of lots of good stuff about trade, the environment, Afghanistan, etc.

*I just deleted a subheading, I'm not doing a Creationist-style quote mine that completely changes the context and meaning of the quote.


  1. Hopefully the demise of Bushie and his fellow foul smelling cronies will stimulate Canadians into realising that just because Harpoon didn't smell as foul as the neighboring President is no good reason to have him. Now there is someone who is fresh as daises next door and Harpoon seems pretty damned stale now!!

    How good does he look now? Not! Frankly, it is a sorry commentary that Canada ever voted for him, but I fear my own country will shortly let me down heavily for the first time since 1992.

  2. We can only hope! Unfortunately though, Ignatieff is no Obama either.

    I think you might be right about the UK.

  3. I never thought about it that way. When the 'leader of the superpower of all time leader of the freeworld' can't tie his shoelaces without assistance and a boob grab, it makes everyone look fabulous in comparison. Further justification for charging George Bush with war crimes.

  4. Hah! I'd love to see that go to trial. "Not only are you responsible for the economic clusterfuck and the Iraq catastrophe, you forced Stephen sodding Harper onto a friendly neighbour who was too gobsmacked by your incompetence to know any better. How do you plead, Mr Bush?"
