Now if it is to be a Canuckistan
series, there will be sore losers:

"I think Canada has always been such a small appendix to the U.S. that it's not even worthy of weasel status. You are below weasels, which makes you moles, or perhaps shrews."

Macello, the NY Post has gone from a prominant and respected NY paper, originated by Alexander Hamilton, and a paper that always stood for liberal causes in NYC and the US, who hired the likes of Max Lerner and Pete Hamill, and Herblock the political cartoonist (the man who Richard Nixon was quoted as saying he hated more than any other person alive), has become garbage liner (in my opinion). When it was sold, it did a 180 degree turn and went from respect to sleeze.

macspectrum, I think that the US may be more accepting of the Canadians offer of peace-keeping assistance. Who knows, they might even serve French Fries in the White House one day on Bastille Day? We shall see.

If you happened to see Rick Mercer's "Talking to Americans" special on CBC last night, you would realize that Americans would have little clue as what Bastille [pronouced Bass-till] Day represents. Maybe something about fishing?

George Bush, when still campaigning, was asked by Mr. Mercer; "Mr. Bush, the Canadian Prme Minister, Jean Poutine has endorsed your candidacy and looks forward to you leading the world into the 21st century." Mr. Bush proceeded to say that he was please with the prme minister's endorsment and that he knew the prime minister and looks forward to meeting him.

This was during a campaign stop in Michigan, you know the state next door that we conduct trade with to the tune of about 55 billion per year? Both the Governor and Secretary of State (Michigan) also had similar comments about the endorsment of Mr. Bush by Prime Minister Poutine.

I'm going to watch hockey now.

macspectrum, yes, I have seen this "Talking to Americans" show twice. I know that he has "blown his cover", but I would love for Rick Mercer to do this again soon. However, I wonder if he would get as warm a welcome saying he was from Canada as he did back in 2000. What shocked me the most were the university profs from the top universities being so ignorant of current events pertaining to Canada.

Clockwork, I think that they spoke to the governors of Michigan and Arkansas. I don't recall a US Senator being "interviewed".

Rick Mercer, who left the show This Hour Has 22 Minutes, has said that he does not intend to do any more of these skits. Pity.

Yeah it was the Governor of Arkansas. I forget exactly what he asked him but he probably should of known. Rick Mercer does that show "Made in Canada" never seen it before but I would imagine it is good.

Gov. of Michigan was asked about "Prime Minister Poutine" of Canada endorsing dubya.

hooo boy....

Made in Canada is not bad. Very much like that show on CBC about the CBC news called "The Corp." if i recall.

MIC, is about a canadian television studio and the "workings on" in their hectic and troublesome day to day lives, slithering in and out of situations as all good tv exeutives ( read "suits" ) do.

it's sleazy, but cute sleazy... good writing, worth a look or 2 or 3....

:D

I agree with your sense of the show "Made in Canada". Rick Mercer has such a dry sense of humor which is quite humorous.

Still, let's stick to the theme of this thread and hope for a "made in Canada" Stanley Cup final....................even if the Leafs are not involved.

We have an old saying here in "The Hawg"

Unlike the rest of Canada, in Toronto, the Leafs fall in spring. :D
