Support for Uncle Sam continues to magnetize the servile and larcenous: to the list of Reform/Alliance leaders Harper and Day, Brian Mulroney (arguably the most despised and loathed Prime Minister in Canadian history), and Alberta's Ralph "I'll throw cash in these bums' faces, that'll show them I'm superior" Kline, we now have Ontario's Mike Harris (arguably the most despised and loathed premier in Canadian history.)
One of the self-loathing Bay Street suits who demonstrated today explained his foundations very simply, with an interesting variation on the usual "you had better be my friend or else" with this bit of sophistry: "I love Americans ... they're very generous ... but you'd better not abuse their friendship."
