From the International Herald Tribune: Stop criticizing U.S., Canadians are told

US Ambassador to Canada David Wilkins unleashed a thinly-veiled attack on Prime Minister Paul Martin yesterday, criticising a pervasive atmosphere of America-bashing in the Canadian government.

During his fiery speech, Wilkins remarked:

"Just think about this. What if one of your best friends criticized you directly and incorrectly, almost relentlessly? What if that friend's agenda was to highlight your perceived flaws while avoiding mentioning your successes? What if that friend demanded respect, but offered little in return?'"

Breaking into angry tears, Wilkins concluded: "Well, then obviously that 'friend' has been spending too much time with my WIFE, and I HATE THEM BOTH!"

Seriously, though, when did the US Ambassador to Canada turn into a bitchy, passive-agressive, twelve-year-old girl?

Actually, don't answer that.
