    I feel better to know that there is at least one civilized country in North America.

    Any experienced parent knows that when you start negotiating with a two-year-old, you've already lost.  The Republican Party is just one massive two-year-old having a really bad, drawn-out tantrum.  We will not have a functioning government until the GOP grows up and realizes its obligation to the whole of society.  I'm not holding my breath.

      involve me trying to explain the stupidity of Americans to our friendly neighbors to the North.  I was up there a lot towards the end of the Bush regime.  It was a constant barrage of "How do you live under those leaders? or Why are your citizens so stupid?"  It felt miserable to defend and rebut the generalizations people had.
