Perhaps I Missed A Memo Somewhere

When exactly were we supposed to start caring about what Fox News, or anyone who takes them seriously, thinks about anything at all, let alone the worth of our country and/or its army?

The Cabinet officials demanding apologies and media outlets in a rage and all the so-earnest Canadians lashing out in indignant defense are all making themselves look worse than the infamous segment ever could have.

Some things simply aren't worth dignifying with more of a response than quiet contempt, I think.

Canada: home to the largest national insecurity complex possibly in the entire history of the world. Also, hey, distraction from real politics! Shiny!

But I thought that making fun of our military was a very Canadian thing to do! We should be praising Fox News for trying to better theirselves and became Canadians.

Heh. A lot of the stuff they said, if it had been said by a local, would have been comedy. (As it is, it's comedy of a different sort.)

Exactly, so, what's the big deal?
