Hey, it worked for Schroeder, why not for Paul Martin? 

Running against Bush, that is:

A day after opting out of the U.S. ballistic missile defense shield, Canadian Prime Minister Paul Martin reiterated Friday that Washington must get permission from Ottawa before firing on any incoming missiles over Canada.

"This is our airspace, we're a sovereign nation and you don't intrude on a sovereign nation's airspace without seeking permission," Martin said.

You've gotta know that the world has taken Bush's measure when—sorry about this Tresy—the Canadians kick sand in His face. I mean, first the Estonians and the French give up one (count 'em) soldier each for Whack, and now this.

GEORGE: What say we whup them Canadians next, hon?

CONDI: [Thinking: With what Army?] Would you like the boots on this time, Master?

Of course, Martin was the quintessentially polite Canadian for not pointing out that Bush's multibillion shrinking-dollar Pentagon-contractor-on-the-tit boondoggle [cough] system just doesn't work. And it isn't like we'd try to bring down incoming warheads on Canadian territory, anyhow. Well, except maybe for the French-speaking part, and then we'd be doing them a favor anyhow, right?
