Okay, this is just so funny that I laughed out loud. The following is a quote from Rick Mercer's blog, where he is comparing the Canadian election to the U.S. election. The whole thing is hilarious; it is sick how well he writes.

Of course the real twist with the Dion character is his rumored inability to communicate in the English language. This is actually a Conservative lie. Stephane Dion can communicate just fine, it's just when he communicates we don't
know what he is saying. If you visit his website there is a video of Mr. Dion
explaining the green shift in eleven simple words. All pronounced properly. He says "it is very simple, you tax less, what you want more of." Like Obama, Dion
is attempting to do politics differently. He eschews the easy to understand
sound bite and instead chooses to speak in what seems like short ancient Japanese koans, or riddles. "And how will a green shift affect my bottom line?" a voter may ask. "What is the sound of one hand clapping" he might answer. Look forward to tension-filled awkward silences in the leaders' debates.


That's all. Just thought you might want a laugh.
