Well, someone in the White House has their panties in a bunch now. Based on this earlier piece, Justin from over at Flash Point Canada points us to the reaction here:
Washington furious over Martin's climate change comments
The White House has officially complained about Prime Minister Paul Martin's comments this week at the climate change conference in Montreal.
A senior official in the Bush administration has told Canadian Ambassador Frank McKenna that Martin's comments are the worst slight against the president since Germany's Gerhard Schroeder suggested President George W. Bush's stance against the Kyoto Protocol was responsible for hurricane Katrina.
To which Canada's official response to Commander Chimpy should be, "You're about $5 billion in softwood lumber duties short of being able to lecture us on anything, you alcoholic, sanctimonious little pissant. Now bugger off."
AFTERSNARK: And more:
An angry Bush administration official complained to Canadian ambassador Frank McKenna about Prime Minister Paul Martin's attacks on U.S. environmental policy, U.S. sources say.
Martin accused the Americans earlier this week of being deaf to global opinion on the need to sign the Kyoto Protocol. The White House took Martin's rebuke as cheap electioneering during the campaign leading to the Jan. 23 vote, the sources said.
Ah, yes ... "cheap electioneering." This from a member of an administration that suddenly discovered a new terror alert whenever they started to drop in the polls, and is using soldiers as the backdrop for partisan hackery. Yeah, these are just the folks who should be lecturing us about cheap electioneering.
