Can't take the heat? Get out of our kitchen.

Why is it that the MINUTE a finger is levelled at the US, they get their collective panties in a knot and start namecalling and whining?

See this article. While our Prime Minister (who I have issues with, don't get me wrong) comments on the Kyoto Protocol, the softwood lumber dispute, amoung other things, we are returned with comments such as this one from Tucker Carlson of all people:

"Anybody with any ambition at all, or intelligence, has left Canada and is now living in New York," he said.
"Canada is a sweet country. It is like your retarded cousin you see at Thanksgiving and sort of pat him on the head. You know, he's nice but you don't take him seriously. That's Canada."

That's right. We're the retarded cousin. Funny that. See, we have what is called a mutually beneficial relationship, like a nurse log on the forest floor, what with our water, oil, electricity, etc flowing south, not to mention exports. But I guess the US doesn't really want any of that, or, they want to act like the neighbourhood bully and take what they want, how and when they want it.

I for one am damn glad our "leader" is calling them on it. Is it an election ploy? Likely. Will I vote Liberal because of it? Nope. But just as one of my proudest moments as a Canadian was when Chretien told Bush to basically stuff his war up his ass, I'm happy when our government finally stands up and sucker punches the bully.

I mean, does anyone who has half a brain listen to Tucker? And is this really the example we want to show the world? Martin makes a pointed comment about the US' lack of commitment to environmental changes and betterment, and it's returned by insults, and childishness.

I particularily LOVE how the US gets mad when anyone doesn't fall into their plans. Free speech includes dissent, even between trading partners.

The stupider american foreign policy gets, the more patriotic I get. I'll sit here in my "retarded" little country, and wait for someone else to bomb you. And LAUGH when they come from inside the US while you stare breathlessly at OUR borders.

Tucker Carlson


You and your pansy ass tie too.

No one with half a brain listens to Tucker Carlson. We know that bow tie has been tied just a little too tight for far too long.

I hope this clears up any confusion. Most of us are ashamed of Tucker and his worshipping wingerbot brethren.

Demagogue, not journalist.

Just remember, for every Carlson, there's a hundred who wish they were here.

As George Carlin once said, "fuck Tucker, Tucker sucks." He wasn't talking about Carlson, but it definitely applies.

I'm sorry we got a moron for our president in the united state. He puppet to the religoius right. If the election 2006 over throw both house he will be lame duck. I know in 2008 he can't be president anymore. I sure hope we don't elect a carpon copy.
I've enjoyed all my trips into cananda.

just look at him, he wears a bowtie, you can't honestly take a little white guy in a bowtie serious, fuck tucker and i mean carlson. i'd love to live in candaland

I dearly HOPE most people are ashamed of any grown skinny boy wearing a bow tie on TV. He can't pull it off-it's so manufactured, and was the first reason he irritated me.

THEN he opened his mouth.

That man is a total weenie. It was hilarious when Jon Stewart told him to stuff it. With his little bow tie he reminds me of the kid from "Problem Child".

Awesome post! Do keep'em coming. I am an Australian who is living in the land of the Bully. Yep, I totally agree with your post. I don't know Tucker but anyone who wears a dumbass tie like that can't expect to be taken seriously?

Watching Jon Stewart call him a dick on Carlson's own TV show was awesome. You never see something like that, it was great.

I didn't even know who he was until I saw another Canadian friend's blog...He sounds like a moron...

On behalf of this American, I apologize for our media and our politicians (both the left and right)...They could be doing so much more to help people and they insist on drawing attention to themselves instead of the issues...

Happy holidays!
