I wonder if Maxime is a big "fan" too

Foreign Affairs Minister Maxime Bernier's in Washington Thursday to meet with Junior MacKay's favourite American, Condoleezza Rice. And you know, we'll be on Maxime-strike-watch as it's usually a good bet when he leaves the country or gives a speech that there'll be something embarrassing to report.

Recall Junior's famous words upon his first meeting with Condi:
And so I'm delighted to be here. I've always been a fan of yours and much of our discussion today confirmed what I already knew about you from having followed your career, so we're very grateful and I personally extend my thanks to you for your generous and very kind invitation to be with you. (emphasis added)
Yes, the words that Junior will never live down. At least not on this blog. Wonder if Maxime will be similarly star struck.

And here's a thought...maybe Maxime should show some moxy and press to get the last westerner, a Canadian citizen, out of Gitmo. How about that, Maxime? 3 British prisoners were flown back to Britain last night to be dealt with by British authorities according to the evidence against them. Embarrassing Canada once more by our lack of action as other civilized nations do the right thing. Why do we not do the same and end this travesty of Conservative lip service to this modern day gulag?
