Canada Supports Dick
In an apparent show of solidarity with a fellow neo-conservative, Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper today defended embattled Vice President Dick Cheney by declaring that "accidents do happen" and revealing that he himself had accidentally shot and killed a penguin on a recent trip to an Ottawa zoo. Like Vice President Cheney, the Prime Minister took total responsibility for the shooting, though he did point out that the penguin "did pop out rather suddenly from behind that rock." The press conference appears to be part of a concerted effort to bring the two countries closer and comes a day after newly-appointed U.S. ambassador Michael Wilson announced that there was "definitely fixing-up work to be done" regarding relations between Canada and the United States.
