What are you talking aboot?

I read yesterday that the U.S. Ambassador to Canada has strongly advised Canadians to basically stop Bush bashing. Courtesy of Talking Points Memo:
"It may be smart election-year politics to thump your chest and constantly criticize your friend and your No. 1 trading partner," David Wilkins said at the Canada Club in Ottawa. "But it is a slippery slope, and all of us should hope that it doesn't have a long-term impact on our relationship."
Oh really!

Turns out Wilkins is another wealthy and unqualified Bush Crony. Salon’s Tim Grieve says:
Wilkins may not know much about Canada -- before he got the ambassadorship, he'd visited the country only once, on a trip to Niagra Falls. But he certainly knows a thing or two about the value of long-term relationships. An old Bush family friend, Wilkins raised more than $200,000 for the president's 2004 reelection campaign. Which means, apprently [sic], that he's pretty much free to say whatever he wants.
Looks like Those Who Support Bush become so emboldened that they feel they can dictate to other countries the content of their political debate. Man, this arrogance: It’s gotta stop. What’s next? Hired goons flown out to all points on the globe at the drop of a hat to enforce the "No Bush Bashing" rule? Ridiculous.
