The Gazette on Jacques Demers

Don MacPherson manages to remain respectful while expressing bafflement at the appointment of a marginally literate former hockey coach who knows nothing about politics or government to Canada's Senate.

And gets the prize for Best Historical Analogy of the Day:
According to legend, the Roman emperor Caligula appointed his horse Incitatus to the Senate to show his contempt for that body.

Heh. Indeed.
