Another reason to love Rick Mercer

in Rants and rambles

Following our heated rivalry for the 2005 Canadian Blog Awards, Rick Mercer and I have come to an easy peace (inasmuch as I stopped obsessing about him and he continued to not notice that I exist.)

Just now, I was futzing about on the computer looking up bits for our trip to Bar Harbour, and the Rick Mercer Report was on in the background. I suddenly knew he must have been thinking about me all this time, maybe quietly lurking on the blog, when I heard his skit featuring the Stephen Harper Home Pregnancy Kit, which lampooned the new child tax credit from the recent federal budget with the tag line, “Canada’s New Government – Fooling Families Two Budgets in a Row!”

Sing it, Rick!

Do you remember when Harper became Prime Minister and the news had that video clip of him dropping his son off at school before he left to start his new job and Supreme Ruler? Remember the handshake? Whenever I think of Harper and Child Tax Credit, I think of that chilly handshake. Ooooo.
