As one Canadian to another, I was struck by this passage from Maureen Dowd’s latest New York Times column:
“Well, son, they knew there was something creepy about the ringleader, Ted Cruz,” the man replies. “His face looked pinched, like a puzzle that had not been put together quite right. He was always launching into orations with a weird cadence and self-consciously throwing folksy phrases into his speeches, like ‘Let me tell ya,’ to make himself seem Texan, when he was really a Canadian.”
The boy looks alarmed. “A Canadian destroyed the world, Papa?”
Wow! As Michelle Obama would say, for the first time in my adult lifetime I’m really proud of my country!
