Deconstructing Brian

I love this eye catching headline.

The first sentence is even better. The article isn't just going to be about the left wing, it is going to be about the far left wing! Holy cow there's even a cherry on top for paranoid Canucks who are touchy about being thought of as American puppets: far left wing Americans invading Canada without our knowledge and doing scary things to us.

As I hunkered down with my coffee, a delicious shiver ran up and down my spine. This was going to be a real bodice ripper.

"Those naughty Yankee devils," I thought picturing Fabio's hair blowing in the wind.

I read on.

It got sexier. Far left wing American church groups!

OMG! Christians!

Even Margaret Atwood was up in arms about that!

We have our standards in Canada. We might not mind taking a little heat from pleasant Americans like Ann Coulter, but you peace mongering American church goers get out of our backyard.

Thank heavens we've got people like Brian Lilley to tell us the unbiased facts, Canada.

Note: This fun little read appeared in the St. Catharines Standard on Sept. 2, 2010. Sorry it isn't clear. If you missed it and really feel you want to read it you can google his headline.
