    What is it about Canada? Self-confidence? Ruinous decadence showing that they are going the way of all great empires, like ancient Rome?

    William Shatner sings O Canada.

    I would like to see the outrage if that Olympics spot, or Shatner’s O Canada were done in the U.S.

    Maybe we can get Bill to do one for the Star Spangled Banner?

    Edit: Seriously, I want something like that for the U.S. so I can see the outrage. I think it’s fun.

    Heard this a.m. that Coke will be doubling down tonight by running an extended edition of the “America the Beautiful” ad. I’m guessing there won’t be Sunday’s blowback because it’s the Olympics, not hand-egg.

    Saw this earlier today out of context; was half-watching and thought before the titles came up, “This seems a little rrrrRRRRrrrr.” Paid attention and liked it even more.

    My former colleagues from the Embassy and various Canadian Consulates General have been posting this on FB pretty constantly today. I’ll bet if I’ve seen it once, I’ve seen it a dozen times already.

    Not that there’s anything wrong with that.

    John Scalzi is basically turning his back on Sochi.

    The longer version is that the unfathomable graft and incompetence and horrible homophobic bigotry that surrounds this particular iteration of the Olympics has massively swamped my usual benign indifference to the thing.

    @Comrade Jake: Most of Canada’s exports have been first rate. Neil Young, Joni Mitchell, Leonard Cohen, and too many others to name. They have given so much that they can be forgiven for the occasional Justin Bieber, Ted Cruz, and David Frum.

    Okay so how is the major news in this story not the fact that the New Jersey Mayor’s mansion is called “Drumthwacket”?

    Sounds like Daffy Duck telling off someone playing the drums too loud.

    It does give the whole scandal a sort of Gilbert and Sullivan or Monty Python flair though it’s true.

    There’s nothing like having such a foul, despicable despot like Putin putting a vicious hit on gay personhood to make it not only cool and rebellious, but downright patriotic to support gays. Counter to his intent, Vlad’s becoming an agent of broader worldwide acceptance of gays.

    @Ultraviolet Thunder: You don’t know the half of it. I was driving from through Hamilton (west of Toronto) and had to pull off the highway so my wife could breast feed my daughter. I could see 4 Tim Horton’s stores from the parking lot we pulled into
