Canada -- when you want to get laid and all the good-looking girls are busy

From this CNN article, we have Commander-in-Chief "Mission Accomplished" CrotchBulge dissing the idea of cheap drugs from Canada (as if the Americans don't have their own problems with pharmaceutical quality control):

"When a drug comes in from Canada, I want to make sure it cures you and doesn't kill you," the president said. "And what my worry is is that, you know, it looks like it's from Canada, and it might be from a third world," Bush said.

Of course, when there's an acute shortage of precious flu vaccine, why, who do you think Bush turns to to bail his sorry ass out of trouble? You guessed it:

TORONTO — When President George W. Bush spoke of importing Canadian flu vaccine during Wednesday's election debate, many in the U.S. public health community were struck by the irony of an administration that slams the door on cheaper Canadian drugs, but looks north for help with an embarrassing vaccine shortage.

Speaking as a Canadian, I have to say that this kind of makes me feel like the shy, homely, small-town girl, the one who can never get a date, the one who all the stud, macho jocks make fun of whenever they're hanging out, swapping getting-laid stories. But when you're really horny on a Saturday evening and everyone in your black book is busy, you know that you can just show up at her place -- make sure nobody sees you there, of course -- get some quick action and relief, and then go back to dissing her the next day with all your buds.

Kind of like that.
