Thanks for nothing, Rick.

Here's Rick Mercer, just yesterday:

It is too bad that prorogation isn't something that our soldiers have in their arsenal. When faced with the order to head out on a foot patrol in the Panjwaii district of southern Afghanistan, to risk their lives to bring democracy to that place, wouldn't it be nice if they could simply prorogue and roll over and go back to sleep. Soldiers don't get that luxury.

And here's your humble scribe from a week ago:

Dear Prime Minister Stephen Harper:

While you take a two-month vacation with pay, could you see about allowing hard-pressed Canadians to take a two-month prorogation from their bills? And, if it's not too much trouble, I'll bet Canada's military would love a two-month break from getting killed overseas.

If you're going to steal my stuff, Rick, you could at least give me credit.

Credit where credit is due. He's standing up.

I sympathize. Someone stole my material from Dec 30 too, with this. At least they changed it to returning to work instead of having the conference, but it's still ending the holiday as was planned before Steve decided his seals needed more training.

Still, I'd be more flattered to be imitated by Mercer than by Iggy.

O.Mi.Gawd. I honestly read that early this morning when I posted my comment as - Rick "Hillier".

I should have known.


Rick Hillier remains a lowlife weasel, in my opinion.
