Memo to moonbats

Listen up, Canada. Or maybe it's grow up, Canada.
Canada's ambassador to the U.S. took the smug attitudes north of the border for a good tearing Friday night. As the
Canadian Press reports:

OTTAWA (CP) - Frank McKenna, Canada's tough-talking ambassador to the U.S., has some advice for Canadians dealing with their powerful neighbours to the south - stop being smug and take the chip off your shoulders.
Americans are offended when Canadians attack them and endlessly moralize about what they should be doing differently, he said Friday.
"In short, a self-righteousness that isn't very flattering," McKenna told The Canadian Press annual dinner, a gathering of journalists and power-brokers.

Now, there are a lot of fine folks I've met north of the border. We don't always agree on everything, but we do have a lot in common. Most of the folks I've met don't share the attitude McKenna describes. (The trolls, though, certainly do.)
Oh, by the way, does anyone have a Carolyn Parrish doll I can stomp?
