Sticking up for the Earth's rectum

Joe Comartin and Brian Masse respond to Stephen Colbert’s suggestion that Windsor is “the Earth’s rectum.”

“It’s not unusual for a humourous comedian to use somebody as a whipping boy on a repeated basis. It’s a convenient and easy way for them to get a laugh,” Windsor-Tecumseh NDP MP Joe Comartin said. “But as always, it’s a cheap shot.”

Windsor West NDP MP Brian Masse wants Colbert to visit Windsor before rushing to judgement. “I would just invite Stephen Colbert to come to Windsor, get out of his basement, and to come over here and talk with people, see people,” Masse said. “Obviously; he’s off his medications and hopefully Obamacare will come from him and rescue him from his situation.”
