More satirical comments about Abandoning America for some place called Canada
"Bush-hating expats," "Multicultural mealymouths," "Molson-drinking Zamboni drivers," and "Gordon Lightfoot lovers."
Just a few of the descriptions of our neighbors to the north culled from this week's "Weekly Standard" cover story, "Welcome to Canada: The Great White Waste of Time."

Canada (along with Pennsylvania) was one of the first big words I learned! I'd live there even if Bush wasn't in office.
