What a Great Country

I'm glad that I live in a country where there is nothing more important happening than who the Minister of Foreign Affairs dated a few years ago. Apparently it's an issue of "fundamental democracy," according to Ralph Goodale. I have paid scant attention to the day-to-day political goings-on in this country in the past couple months, and seeing what I saw today helps me to realize that I'm clearly not missing very much. This is leadership? This is what is considered relevant? The "security issue" is about as thin a piece of ice I've seen the politicians of this country ever skate on as a major issue. This will surely pass within a day, and none will be better off for this bout of foolishness.
