"You'll do a heckuva job, Stockie."
[Howdy, Kos guests. I'm betting you'll be feeling a lot better after you read this. Make sure you follow the early link for all the stomach-churning details. -- CC]
[UPDATE: You treacherous Americans. We send you smoked salmon, and Mike Myers, and Neil Young, and this ... this is how you repay us?? Bastards.]
And doesn't this just fill you with foreboding, as Alison points out that our new Minister of Public Safety and Emergency Preparedness is the anti-choice, anti-gay, Bible-pounding, young earth creationism-believing Stockwell Day.
I just can't wait to see how the new federal Department of Faith-Based Anti-Terrorism works out. Maybe I'll just kill myself now and save the terrorists the trouble.
AFTERSNARK: Now, this is a case where I would have been more than happy for Stevie Boy to reach across the aisle and appoint to a cabinet position someone who wouldn't have been as much of an anti-intellectual dumbfuck as Stockwell Day.
All this time, the annoying citizens of Wankerville have been adamant that poaching David Emerson was in the best interests of the country. Yes sir, Steve was only thinking of us 'cuz, you know, that's just the kind of altruistic saint that he is.
Well, if Steve's such a bottomless well of compassion, perhaps he might have found someone better suited to that cabinet position than Stockwell Day. You know, maybe someone who isn't one of the most embarrassing retards to ever stumble through Canadian politics.
If Canada's right-wing wanks can't rouse themselves from their couches long enough to get even a little infuriated over this pathetically inappropriate appointment, their "It's in the best interests of the country" David Emerson hypocrisy will be blatantly obvious. Again.
