Rick Mercer
A "borrowed" picture of Rick Mercer

This is by Rick Mercer, a comedian, humourist, and funny guy in Canada. I think he comes closest to the biting kind of political satire that Jon Stewart (The Daily Show) and Stephen Colbert (The Colbert Report) specialize in.

Here’s Mercer’s rant on Stephen Harper, who has p*ssed off just about everybody in all areas of the political quandrants by proroguing Parliament for another couple of months (probably so he can avoid answering opposition questions on torture in Afghanistan, stack the Senate while Parliament is empty, spend taxpayers’ money like drunken fools without anyone asking serious questions, and pretty much avoid the media.

Enjoy the >full rant here:

This is a man who could argue that he is Canada’s greenest PM simply because he’s the only one who has gone out of his way to give potted plants key portfolios.
