Ian MacDonald Channels Maureen Dowd

Martin can help Bush and defend Canada's sovereignty - Montreal Gazette

Notwithstanding that the article completely contradicts the headline, I thought this passage deserved a rewrite.

"Both men face elections this year. Both are in more trouble than they expected to be a year ago when Bush landed on an aircraft carrier and announced the end of military engagement in Iraq. In this cruel month of April alone, more American soldiers have been killed there than during the war itself."

Hmmmm...
Both men face elections this year. Both are in more trouble than they expected to be a year ago when Martin was quietly serving as a regular MP, the Liberal party in a peaceful transition period, and before the auditor-general revealed explosive details of Liberal corruption with the "Adscam" Scandal, with tentacles reaching into his very office during his tenure as Finance Minister.

There, that's better. And so much more Canadian content than MacDonald's version.
