You just gotta laugh. I mean, really. You just gotta.

Mort Saul, Johnny Wayne, Frank Schuster, Mike Myers, John Candy, Catherine O'Hara, Eugene Levy, David Foley, Dan Ackroyd, Scott Thompson, Leslie Neilsen, Mary Walsh, Phil Hartman, Rich Little, Rick Moranis, Dave Thomas, Martin Short, Steve Smith, David Steinberg . . . Rick Mercer.

I see he's gone fishing with Bob Rae, the # 2 placeholder in the Liberal leadership race. And skinnydipping, as it turns out.

And this made me laugh too:

OTTAWA (CBP): Federal NDP leader Jack Layton repeated his demand that Canada withdraw for the United Nations during Question Period in the House of Commons today.

Mr Layton, after expressing his outrage at reports the U.N. Security Council plans a mission to Afghanistan to express its continuing commitment
to the country, said "Canadians want out of this Bush-controlled organ and they want out now."

So did this:

Republicans Want to Turn Over a New Page.

And this:

Two Irish policemen face being kicked off the force after a damning internal inquiry found they got drunk on duty and fought while on armed protection at the United States Embassy in Dublin.

Noreen's always a riot:

International affairs bore me fucking rigid. Isn't it tedious, all this talk about North Korea and their bomb? God, I'm sick to the back teeth of it, those fucking dreadful, attention seeking, totalitarian cunts. They're so behind the times with it all as well, the morons!

And here's Rick putting a question to a certain American presidential candidate about the endorsement he'd won from a certain non-existent Canadian prime minister by the name of Poutine:

Go Bob Rae! His was the best handling of the usually nasty Mercer I've seen.

And George Strombo****ous interviewing Belinda Stronach at the top of the week? Wow,
interesting how the NDP CBC folks are nursing a little crush on Liberals after a few months of the Brian-o-saurus Rex machine.

Thanks for the laughs. We really, gotta laugh.

A less amusing story about the Guards is their tendency to murder people held in custody. For example Terence Wheelock was beaten to death at the Store Street Garda Station in Dublin a while back.

Jen: That's what I love about Canadian politics. Rick goes out for a sandwich in Montreal with Chretien, goes to Canadian Tire with P Martin to buy stuff to seal the windows at Sussex Drive. . .

. . .and Cam, about the Garda: They do still generously find lifts home for inebriated fans after hurling matches at Croke Park, don't they?

Just looking on the bright side, I mean.
