  1. Okay, this is becoming embarrassing. I think I saw Harper blushing.

  2. Ding!

    We have a winner of the “How to capture the absurdity of this whole spectacle” in the 20 Words and Under category.

    • Seriously, this post could have been a “Shorter CBC” bit.

      I know it’s tough to kill airtime during events like this, but CBC Newsworld really spent about 20 seconds on this very topic.

    I’ll be happy when this is over. How embarrassing. I wonder if Obama is embarrassed about this spectacle. Then again, I guess he’s used to creepy people mouthing ‘I love you’ at him from the crowd.
