One thing I appreciate is people who don't always take themselves too seriously. Take the Prime Minister of Canada -- Stephen Harper. Various comedians and political cartoonists have taken delight in poking fun at (or blowing out of proportion, depending on your point of view) his foibles, quirks, and mistakes. It's not an uncommon thing to have happen to someone in the public eye. The man can't even take his children to school without the good-byes being analyzed.
So it was with some interest I watched Rick Mercer -- host of The Rick Mercer Report -- make a visit to the Prime Minister's residence. I could sum it up for you, but I'll just let you watch it for youself:
Happy Canada Day, everyone!
