Occasionally I wish Rick Mercer would run for PM.

Politics is a little like junior high. And every year the principal of the school, whether he wants to or not, has to go to the talent show, put on the stupid Hawaiian shirt and the Ray-Bans, and lip-sync to the Spice Girls so for one shining moment the kids don't think he's a giant tool.

Now Harper doesn't get this. So he doesn't go. Fine. It's a free country, he can do what he wants. But that's not good enough for him. He's gotta go one step further and try to ruin it for everyone else by ordering his cabinet ministers to cancel on their dates at the last minute. And the truly disturbing thing is they did.

Now, I know, we all got to work for a living, and a lot of us have demanding bosses, but is there a man or woman in Canada with a shred of dignity that would allow their boss to tell them what social events they're allowed to attend on a Saturday night?

In other news, the Green Party is now, for the first time in their 24-year life (they're the same age as me!), polling nationally at third-place, two percent ahead of the NDP.

Now if only we can have an election...
